Our Model

Foundry partners with educational institutions to deliver industry relevant creative education in key fields. You’ll learn our content taught by Foundry teachers on Foundry campuses - finishing your study journey with nationally recognised awards and qualifications. 

Our unique model teaches via two key tracks: Universal Thinking and Specialised Skills. The Universal Thinking element of your studies is accredited by a higher education provider, with the skills element mapped to Foundry’s vocational provider. The total fees paid include both higher education fees and vocational fees:

Associate Degree in Applied Design

Awarded by The University of Tasmania:  individuals undertaking a pathway at Foundry will complete an Associate Degree in Applied Design. The Associate Degree in Applied Design is delivered in partnership with University College (a division of The University of Tasmania).

What fees apply?

All fees for the Associate Degree in Applied Design are the same as studying directly with University College. Foundry does not charge any additional fees. 

Commonwealth supported places are available for students enrolling into the Associate Degree of Applied Design. All Commonwealth supported places are substantially subsidised by the Australian Government so that students only pay the 'student contribution' amount for their units of study.

Eligible Commonwealth supported students (Australian citizens and permanent humanitarian visa holders) can use a HECS-HELP loan to help pay student contribution - for more information please see HECS-HELP Loans

For more information on your support options visit the studyassist.gov.au

Before you can determine how much your fees will be you must find out what type of Fee Structure (Commonwealth Supported or Full Fee paying) applies to you and determine your Fee Type. Please see this link for more information.
