The VET Course of Study (VCO) submission must be provided to the department for all eligible courses in a particular year.

Data relating to these courses are subsequently reported on the following files:

  • VET Student Enrolment (VEN)
  • VET Student Load/Liability (VLL) & Revised Student Load/Liability (VRL)
  • VET Commonwealth Assisted Students (VDU) & Revised Commonwealth Assisted Students (VDU)
  • VET Student Revisions (VSR)
  • VET Unit of Study Completions (VCU)
  • VET Course Completions (VCC)

The primary element in the Course of Study submission is the E307 Course Code. This code identifies the course and links the submission to other related submissions.

The E307 Course Code is also the NTIS Course Code – shown in The National Training Information Service (NTIS) and in the VET FEE‑HELP Information Technology System (VITS).

A course can only be reported on the VET Course of Study submission if the course has been approved for VET FEE‑HELP by the department through the VITS.

A list of these approved courses can also be accessed through the ‘View’ menu item in HEPCAT. More detailed information on this is available in the HEPCAT user guides.


Timing of submissions is detailed in the Reporting Schedule for the relevant reporting year.


Information about the structure and the elements included in the VET Course of Study submission are available in the VET Course of Study structure document.

Detailed information on how to revise previously reported VET FEE‑HELP data is available in the VET FEE‑HELP Revisions Guides.
