There are 4 ways you can pay for this course:
If you are eligible, you can pay for this course through the Australian Government’s VET FEE-HELP loan scheme, meaning you don’t need to pay upfront for the course. Through VET FEE-HELP, the Australian Government pays the amount of your course to the education provider on your behalf. You’ll start paying back this loan (including a 20% loan fee) through the tax system once your taxable income is more than the minimum repayment threshold (which is $54,869 for the 2016-2017 financial year).
On the 5th October 2016 the Australian Government announced plans to replace the VET FEE-HELP scheme with the VET Student Loans scheme, which are scheduled to apply from the 1st January 2017.
The Government has advised that students who access VET-FEE HELP prior to the 31st December 2016 may continue to access the VET FEE-HELP scheme until the 31st December 2017, provided the student notifies the Australian Government Department of Education and Training of this intention by the 31st March 2017.
To do this, the student needs to complete an online form that will be made available on the Department’s website. If the student does not inform the Department, access to VET-FEE HELP will cease on the 31st March 2017.
If your study continues into 2018, the proposed changes state you may not be able to access VET FEE-HELP after 31st December 2017. However, you may be able to access the new proposed VET Student Loans scheme, depending on the course and provider. For further information and updates, you should regularly check the Australian Government’s proposed changes to student loan schemes.
Find out more about the proposed changes.

It’s a flexible method – you can choose to make payments every week, fortnight or month, depending on what suits you. And you can make payments throughout the duration of the whole course – you just need to pay the full amount by the time you finish.
Paying as you go gives you the control and doesn’t involve taking out a loan. If you happen to change your mind and withdraw from the course, you won’t need to pay for the whole course – only for part of the course that you have studied.
You can set up regular payments to be debited from your bank account, or pay by credit card. You will need to pay a $10 set-up fee, and a processing fee of 4% of the course cost (excluding GST).
You may be able to access a government-subsidised place in this course through the Victorian Training Guarantee.
You could save over 80% on the course cost, or in some cases you may not need to pay the course cost at all.
