Eligible students can apply for a loan to pay for their fees up to capped amounts through the Commonwealth Government’s VET Student Loans scheme. The loan applies to eligible courses at the Diploma level or above. If you are interested in accessing VET Student Loans, you can find more information at: www.education.gov.au/vet-student-loans.
VET Student Loans commenced on 1 January 2017 and replaced the VET FEE-HELP scheme. As part of the transition, existing VET FEE-HELP students may continue receiving a VET FEE HELP loan in 2017 provided certain requirements are met. If you want to know more about continued access to VET FEE HELP, speak to your provider or for more information or visit the Department of Education and Training’s website.
If you are a VET provider seeking more information about how these changes will affect you, go to the Department of Education and Training’s website at: www.education.gov.au/vet-student-loans.
