There are 3 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.
