Are the upfront costs of studying stopping you from improving your career prospects?
The VET FEE-HELP scheme allows you to study now and pay for your course later.
VET FEE-HELP is a loan for all or part of your tuition fees, which the Australian Government pays directly to AIAS. The great thing about VET FEE-HELP is that you don't have to make any repayments until you have a job and your income reaches a certain level, which for the 2012/13 income year is $49,095. The loans are then repaid effortlessly through the tax system.
