When it comes to getting qualified for your dream job, costs can be an obstacle between you and your career aspirations – especially when you need to pay course fees upfront while juggling living expenses.
With the help of a VET Student Loan, you can comfortably commit to studying for a qualification that will prepare you for your ideal job, without needing to worry about the financial burden that comes with struggling to keep up with your day-to-day expenses.
VET Student Loans-approved online courses in Australia
VET Student Loans replaced the VET FEE-HELP scheme in Australia in January 2017. These government-funded loans offer eligible students an income-contingent loan to pay for their diploma level and above vocational education and training (VET) qualifications.
Essentially, if you’re eligible for a VET Student Loan, this means the Australian Government will cover your course fees upfront, and you’ll only need to pay your loan back once you’re earning over the compulsory repayment threshold, which is adjusted each year. This gives you the financial freedom to study to get qualified for your dream job without it putting a strain on your day-to-day living costs.
To be eligible, you need to be studying a VET Student Loans-approved course with an approved training provider.
