VET Student Loans and Financial Assistance


Financing your studies does not need to be a hurdle. Australian Careers Business College supports you in paying tuition fees through several initiatives, including VET Student Loans, Interest Free Loans and flexible payment options.

VET Student Loans is a financial assistance scheme offered by the Australian Government. Eligible students can secure an interest-free loan to pay all or part of their tuition fees for approved courses.

With VET Student Loans, you do not have to repay your loan until your income reaches the minimum threshold set for compulsory repayment. The 2016-17 threshold is $54,869. You can choose to make voluntary repayments at any time. A VET Student Loans administration fee of 20% applies to loans provided through the scheme.

Eligible students must be:

  • An Australian citizen
  • A New Zealand Special Category Visa (SCV) holder who meets the long-term residency requirements.
  • A permanent humanitarian visa holder.

Everyone has different financial circumstances. This is why ACBC offers a range of easy flexible payment schedules. Options include a scheduled or monthly payment plan. Please note that there are specific special conditions regarding each individual payment plan. Do you think you need flexible payment options to help fund your studies? Please arrange to meet with one of our Campus Managers to discuss your specific circumstances.

Several means-tested payment options are open to eligible students to provide financial assistance whilst you study. Government funding support is available to students undertaking approved study or an Australian apprenticeship.
