How much does it cost?

Study Link subjects may have a fee applied depending on your citizenship status:

Free

Most Australian residents can enrol in Study Link for FREE! Study Link is designed to build knowledge and skills so that you can start off any future tertiary studies with confidence. You just need to:

  • * be an Australian citizen, a New Zealand citizen or the holder of a permanent visa, AND
  • * meet the relevant citizenship and residency requirements (living in Australia for the duration of your study) - for more information, go to the Study Assist website.

Fees apply

Fees apply if you are wishing to study online from outside Australia or you don't meet the requirements for free enrolment in Study Link (see the Study Assist website).

Note: Tuition fees are reviewed annually and are subject to change.

STUDY LINK is a suite of skills and knowledge based subjects designed to prepare students for university study. If you haven't studied for a while or just want to brush up on your skills or fill in some knowledge gaps in a particular subject area, a STUDY LINK subject may be the solution for you. Most are short, self-paced on-line subjects but there are also weekend workshops available. You can start them at a time to suit you.
