Default Tuition Fees for my wife

Hello All,

My wife has decided to go back to college and will be starting classes in July 2019. We moved to Australia in 2017 and she hasn't been working (We have a toddler at home) the whole time. My question is whether I would be able to get a tax break on the tuition I pay for her? Since I am the single earner and I will be paying for her studies. I did not get much information on the same. Any information will be helpful.

Thanks.

Is your wife an Aussie citizen? If not, what visa does she hold.

Given there’s no college in Australia, are you talking about University or TAFE?
