At AAIC, we are delighted to offer several courses that are heavily subsidized by the South Australian Government for eligible students. As a pre-qualified supplier, we take great pride in assisting our students with accessing government funding options. The best part is that there is no restriction on the number of subsidized courses an applicant can take.
As long as the courses are approved by the relevant authority and enrolled in the training account, the student can benefit from the subsidy for each approved course they undertake. We are committed to providing accessible and affordable education, empowering our students to pursue their desired learning paths without financial barriers.
The course fee for domestic students remains the same across all courses. However, the majority of the course fee will be subsidized by the government, reducing the amount you need to pay. The remaining fees, which may vary for different courses, will be your responsibility. To find out the specific minimum student contribution amount for a particular course, you can refer to the enrollment application or reach out to our AAIC admission team, who will gladly provide you with this information. We are here to assist you in understanding the financial aspects of your education and ensure a smooth enrollment process.
Absolutely, a Unique Student Identifier (USI) is mandatory for all students enrolling in a Vocational Education and Training (VET) level course, regardless of whether it is funded or self-funded. The USI is a unique reference number that allows you to access and keep track of your nationally recognized training records and results from various providers. It is an essential requirement to ensure accurate and reliable record-keeping of your educational achievements in the VET sector. Rest assured, we will guide you through the process of obtaining a USI during the enrollment process to ensure a seamless experience.
To apply for credit transfer or recognition of prior learning (RPL), simply tick the relevant box on the application form for enrollment. Upon receiving your application, our academic team will send you the appropriate Credit Transfer form or RPL form. To obtain course credit, you will need to provide original transcripts as evidence.
Our academics will carefully review your application for course credit or RPL during the enrollment process. If credit transfer or RPL is granted, the duration of your course and timetable will be adjusted accordingly. This will ensure that your Confirmation of Enrollment (COE) reflects the credited subjects or competencies. We strive to make the process seamless and efficient for you as you progress through your educational journey at AAIC.
Certainly, course credit can reduce the fee for the transferred units. It's important to note that an administration fee may apply for processing the course credit request. This fee covers the administrative costs involved in evaluating and processing the credit transfer. Rest assured, we aim to keep the process as straightforward as possible while recognizing the value of your previous learning experiences. If you have any questions or need further clarification, feel free to reach out to our team for assistance.
Yes, you have the option to defer or suspend your studies by completing and submitting a deferment or suspension application form. Our college will carefully review your application in accordance with our deferral, suspension, and cancellation policy and procedure.
For your application to be considered, you will need to provide evidence of compelling or compassionate circumstances that warrant the deferment or suspension of your studies. Such circumstances may include, but are not limited to:
- Serious injury or illness, supported by a medical certificate stating that you were unable to attend classes.
- Bereavement or serious illness of a close family member, where possible, accompanied by a death certificate.
- Political upheaval or natural disaster in your home country requiring emergency travel, which has impacted your ability to continue your studies.
- Experiencing a traumatic event, such as being involved in a serious crime or accident, supported by reports from police or psychologists.
While we understand the importance of supporting our students during challenging times, it's essential to note that even with medical and supporting documents, the approval for suspension or deferment cannot be guaranteed. Once your request has been granted, you may proceed to purchase your air ticket accordingly. If you have any questions or require further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
