Funding for domestic students

FEE-HELP for domestic students on Masters programs

If you enrol in an Australian fee-place for your Masters program, and are eligible, the Australian Government's FEE-HELP loan program allows you to defer all or part of your tuition fees via a government loan, similar to the deferral of student contributions via HECS-HELP.

Where can I get more information?

Detailed information on FEE-HELP can be found on the Australian Government's Study Assist website.
