Tuition Assurances Exemption

Tuition assurance is a requirement of the Higher Education Support Act 2003 (HESA) for all Higher Education Providers which means students can access alternative courses of study and or be financially compensated if the Higher Education Provider ceases being able to provide a course of study.

AFTRS has been granted a ministerial exemption from these requirements on the basis that:

  • Its funding is secure
  • It is extremely unlikely that AFTRS will be in a position where it will be unable to deliver a course of study due to its established position as a federally funded government institution.
  • The specialised nature of AFTRS courses of study and the unique production model offered is not available at any other institution in Australia.
