WHAT IS VET FEE HELP AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

VET FEE-HELP is an Australian Government loan scheme that helps eligible students pay their tuition fees for higher-level vocational education and training (VET) courses undertaken at approved VET FEE-HELP providers (approved providers).

VET FEE-HELP can be used to cover all or part of your tuition fees. The Government pays the loan amount directly to your approved provider. You will repay the loan gradually through the tax system once your income is above the compulsory repayment threshold set by the Australian Taxation Office. You can make a voluntary repayment of your VET FEE-HELP debt at any time.

DO I HAVE TO PAY ALL FEES UP-FRONT?

No, you do NOT have to pay all course fees up-front. We have a variety of payment methods to suit your requirements. You can select to pay per unit of study, per semester, or by using a monthly, fortnightly or weekly payment plan.
