Study assistance

As a WA public sector employee, you may be eligible to receive a 10 per cent discount on course fees for a range of courses as listed below.

The Public Sector Commission has partnered with Edith Cowan University, Murdoch University, Curtin University and more recently the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors to provide public sector employees with savings on the cost of a public-sector-related qualification.

NB: Please note that as of 2015 The University of Western Australia will be withdrawing from the study assistance scheme. Existing students who received the discount in 2014 may be eligible to receive the discount in 2015. For further information please refer to the guidelines for The University of Western Australia for existing student.
