Study Now Pay later!

With VET FEE-HELP there is no upfront payment to start your diploma. VET FEE-HELP is an Australian Government loan scheme that assists eligible students to pay tuition fees for diploma courses. Repayments of the loan are managed through the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) once your income reaches a certain threshold.

VET FEE‑HELP is available to assist eligible students studying higher level vocational education and training (VET) qualifications to pay their tuition fees. Higher level VET qualifications are at the diploma level and above. VET FEE‑HELP can be used to pay all or part of an eligible student’s tuition fees, but cannot be used for additional study costs such as accommodation or text books.
