The HECS-HELP Benefit was a program that offered graduates of particular courses (including maths, science, education, nursing and midwifery) reductions on their compulsory HELP repayments if they took up work in related occupations.

The HECS-HELP Benefit was removed on 1 July 2017, meaning that the final eligible year for application was the 2016-17 income year.

The last day to lodge an application for the HECS-HELP Benefit was 30 June 2019 (there are no extensions to this deadline).
