    Op, can you consider a uni course in your chosen field of study? I just don't think TAFE is a viable option these days. The quality of the qualification just does not reflect how much you pay for it these days.

    If I had vet fee help 24k but without was 20k from memory. I also pay nothing back until I earn over 53kand its 3% of pay I think.

    Single mum this was my only option.

    Yep TAFE NSW. They were all just the normal hecs fees. We all didn't know about them until we received our hecs statements.
