There are countless things to think about when you start sorting through your study options: the course you want to do and where you want to do it, just to name a couple.

But what about the cost of your course? In the same way as it is helpful to understand the structure of your program and its graduate opportunities, it also helps to know exactly where you stand on the costs front. The cost of your education and how you pay for it vary depending on a few factors, which will be explained below.

Renault Automotive Apprentice Program at the Kangan Institute

You’ll be employed by a Renault dealership that has openly expressed an interest in acquiring an apprentice, meaning you’ll benefit from real world experience – all aspects of maintaining Renault vehicles, such as scheduled servicing requirements and major diagnostic and repairs. Completed over four years, the apprenticeship combines this real world experience with a diverse range of off-the-job training (three years block release) at the Renault Academy. In effect, you’ll learn new knowledge and skills, apply them in the workplace, and then constantly work to improve upon them. Such knowledge includes electronic fault diagnosis which is now a fundamental part of day to day operations, so you’ll learn how to use the latest Renault diagnostic equipment, such as the Formula 1TM inspired CLIP.

GENERAL

Financial Assistance and Scholarship Support

There are plenty of costs associated with tertiary study: course fees, books and computer equipment are just a few. If you have additional expenses (such as rent if you need to live away from home), you may be wondering how you will manage on a limited student income.

If you need financial assistance, you generally have two options as a student:

There are also schemes in place to assist you with the cost of student services and amenities fees and studying overseas. Your institution may also offer additional financial assistance options. Our advice is to investigate your options the minute you begin searching for courses. With the amount of information to get through, it doesn't hurt to start early!

A Start in Life

A Start in Life provides support to disadvantaged students to promote educational progression and to help students overcome the educational barriers they face, so they can access the same learning opportunities as their peers.

Our Student and Family Management team works in conjunction with parent/ carers, students and educators to set learning goals for each student, and develop a tailored plan of support that addresses the barriers they are facing to their education.

Yet 5 years out of school with a string of professional positions under my belt, I’ve learnt firsthand that almost every single job requires a creative mindset’.

In the same way as it is helpful to understand the structure of your program and its graduate opportunities, it also helps to know exactly where you stand on the costs front. The cost of your education and how you pay for it vary depending on a few factors, which will be explained below.

Renault Automotive Apprentice Program at the Kangan Institute

You’ll be employed by a Renault dealership that has openly expressed an interest in acquiring an apprentice, meaning you’ll benefit from real world experience – all aspects of maintaining Renault vehicles, such as scheduled servicing requirements and major diagnostic and repairs. Completed over four years, the apprenticeship combines this real world experience with a diverse range of off-the-job training (three years block release) at the Renault Academy. In effect, you’ll learn new knowledge and skills, apply them in the workplace, and then constantly work to improve upon them. Such knowledge includes electronic fault diagnosis which is now a fundamental part of day to day operations, so you’ll learn how to use the latest Renault diagnostic equipment, such as the Formula 1TM inspired CLIP.

GENERAL

Financial Assistance and Scholarship Support

There are plenty of costs associated with tertiary study: course fees, books and computer equipment are just a few. If you have additional expenses (such as rent if you need to live away from home), you may be wondering how you will manage on a limited student income.

If you need financial assistance, you generally have two options as a student:

There are also schemes in place to assist you with the cost of student services and amenities fees and studying overseas. Your institution may also offer additional financial assistance options. Our advice is to investigate your options the minute you begin searching for courses. With the amount of information to get through, it doesn't hurt to start early!

‘In high school, I was warned about picking “too many creative subjects”. I was told it wouldn’t prepare me for work or that my career expectations were unrealistic. Yet 5 years out of school with a string of professional positions under my belt, I’ve learnt firsthand that almost every single job requires a creative mindset’.
