The new financial year is underrated.  With tax cuts kicking in from as early as 1 July 2018, 30 June is the real date we should be popping those champagne corks.  

With policy changes that will see Australian’s save on preschool and childcare and a boost to Youth Allowance (from 1 January 2019), this financial year is going to see you with some extra lettuce (hopefully).

But that doesn’t mean you should change your frugal habits. Why not consider investing your new-found wealth in your education? Here are three alternatives to smashed avocado on toast or that trip to Greece.

Short courses

Once upon a time we offered short courses in things like ironing… and magic. Yes. Magic. While we don’t offer a "Card Tricks for Beginners Short Course" anymore, there are still some incredible things to choose from.

TAFE Queensland offers heaps of short courses across an exciting range of study areas. Our short courses are developed to be responsive to local demands and changing industry needs.

Whether you are looking to brush up on your Microsoft Excel skills or brushing up on your make-up skills for those selfies, then short courses could be for you.
