Financial assistance

FEE-HELP loan scheme

If you are a postgraduate coursework student paying domestic full fee paying tuition fees, you may be eligible to access the Australian Government's FEE-HELP loan scheme to assist in paying your fees. Under this scheme, students who are Australian citizens can borrow up to the amount of the tuition fees being charged for units of study.

Find out more about the FEE-HELP loan scheme.

Tax deductibility

If your postgraduate degree is related to your employment, your tuition fees may be tax deductable as a self education expense, even if you defer your payments using FEE-HELP. Please contact your financial adviser or the ATO for advice on whether this applies to you, or visit the Guide to students and tax on the ATO website.
