Fee-free training for Year 12 graduates

If you're a Queensland resident, have just finished year 12 and are keen to start your studies within the next calendar year, you might be eligible to study fee free.

The Queensland government has identified a number of industries with a high demand for trained workers. To help fill these gaps, they will pay the full cost of a number of certificate III qualifications in high-priority study areas under the Certificate 3 Guarantee and User Choice programs.


  • You must have completed year 12 in Queensland.
  • You must hold a Senior Statement issued by the Queensland Studies Authority or the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority or equivalent.
  • You must enrol in your chosen course by the end of the calendar year following your completion of year 12 (e.g. if you graduated in 2015, you must enrol before the end of 2016).
  • You must live permanently in Queensland.
