This report considers the private rates of return for students studying vocational education and training (VET) courses in Australia. The study summarises the costs and benefits of studying for a VET qualification for various student characteristics, qualification levels and modes of study. It finds that although the rates of return vary for these different characteristics and scenarios, generally students do have an adequate economic incentive to enrol in VET. The best returns were for students who study higher-level qualifications (certificate III upwards), and do so part-time.
