How to pay for your course

Study Now, Pay Later

Eligible Australian students have access to the Australian Government’s FEE-HELP or VET Student Loan fee assistance initiatives to help pay for some or all of the cost of your education.

These schemes can assist in deferring the cost of tuition fees. Repayments commence via the tax system once the student’s income rises above a minimum threshold.

Learn more about our courses and FEE-HELP fee assistance here.
