AFTRS staff (fixed term and ongoing staff) and their immediate families are entitled to a 15% discount on all AFTRS Open Short Courses. For multiple bookings (two or more) that are made simultaneously, a 20% discount will apply on all courses booked. In the event of a refund being requested and the booking no longer being classified as ‘multiple’, the discount will no longer apply, and the discounted amount for the remaining courses will be deducted from any refund.
State Funded Applicants
Applicants whose course fees are paid for by a state funding agency are entitled to a 10% discount on all AFTRS Open Short Courses. Applications must be accompanied by supporting documents from state funding bodies.
Senior citizens with a valid seniors card are entitled to a 20% discount on selected AFTRS Open Short Courses. Where applicable this discount is highlighted on the relevant course detail page on this website.
Multiple Course Bookings
Applicants paying for three or more course places at the same time are entitled to a discount of 10% on full fee course cost for each of the multiple booking. In the event of a refund being requested for any of these courses, other than due to AFTRS’ cancellation of the course, the discount will no longer apply, and the discounted amount for the remaining courses will be deducted from any refund.
