With the student loan scheme provided by the Australian Government
What are VET Student Loans?
VET Student Loans is a loans program provided by the Australian Government to assists eligible students to pay part of their tuition fees. The government directly pays AIT the amount of the loan, and you pay it back through the Australian taxation system once your annual income reaches the minimum repayment threshold. The repayment threshold for 2017-2018 income year is $55,874.
VET Student Loans are especially beneficial for students who could not otherwise afford to pay upfront. There is no interest charged on a VET Student Loan; however, the loan is indexed each year on 1 June.
VET Student Loans replace the previous VET FEE-HELP scheme. Learn more about VET Student Loans at: www.studyassist.gov.au
