You may be able to claim a deduction for self-education expenses if your study is work-related or if you receive a taxable bonded scholarship. In some circumstances you have to reduce the amount of your claim by $250.
In this section:
Work-related self-education expenses are expenses you incur when you undertake a course to obtain a formal qualification from a school, college, university or other place of education that is relevant for your current employment.

In certain circumstances you may have to reduce your allowable self-education expenses by $250. However, you may have other types of expenses - some of which are not allowable as a deduction - that can be offset against the $250 before you have to reduce the amount you can claim for allowable expenses.
