Search for approved courses

Once you've decided on your field of study, you will be able to narrow down your list of courses and providers. The level and type of Commonwealth assistance you can get when you study a particular course might be an important consideration for you. To access Commonwealth assistance (either a Commonwealth supported place or a HELP loan to pay for your study) you need to study an eligible course at an eligible provider or university. Please see the Providers that offer Commonwealth assistance page for further information.

Higher education courses (generally Bachelor degree and above)

If you are interested in comparing study areas and higher education institutions, the Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching website (opens in a new window) helps students and their families make informed choices about their higher education options, by bringing together survey data from all Australian universities about students’ experiences and graduate job outcomes.

You can also use the course search provided by the tertiary admissions centre (TAC), in your state or territory, to search for higher education courses. More information about TACs can be found on the enrolling in a course page.

VET FEE-HELP approved courses

Please visit the My Skills (opens in new window) website to search for, and compare, VET courses and training providers. To confirm if a provider is approved to offer VET FEE-HELP please refer to the Providers that offer Commonwealth assistance page.
