What is FEE-Help?

If you’re a Domestic student and interested in studying a Bachelor of Health Science (Clinical Myotherapy) you may be eligible for FEE-HELP.

A FEE-HELP loan is available to assist in paying for all or part of higher education tuition course fees. The loan does not cover costs such as accommodation, laptops or textbooks.

FEE-HELP is a loan scheme that assists eligible fee-paying students to pay their tuition fees. Eligible students can borrow up to the FEE-HELP limit, to pay their tuition fees. For 2021, the FEE-HELP limit is $108,232 for most students. Indexation and the loan fee do not count towards your FEE-HELP limit.

Students repay the loan to the Australian Government through the tax system once a student reaches the minimum income threshold level for repayment, which for 2020-21 is $46,620.

For further information, please refer to:

  • The Australian Government website Study Assist.
  • The Minister for Education and Training Media Release, 14 August 2018.

What is VET Student Loan?

If you’re a Domestic student and interested in studying HLT54115 Diploma of Nursing you may be eligible for VET Student Loans.

VET Student Loan (VSL) is a Commonwealth Government loan scheme that assists students to pay a part of their VET Student Loan tuition fee.

Please note that VSL does not cover the total course cost, it is a loan capped at $16,077.

Students are able to access a VET Student Loan (VSL) to pay for their tuition fees for a course at a course provider that is approved to teach that course under the VSL program. Think: Colleges’ current approval as a VSL approved course provider ends on 31 December 2021. The Commonwealth Department of Education, Skills and Employment will need to assess an application by Think: Colleges for re-approval as an approved course provider. Re-approval is not automatic and requires Think: Colleges to continue to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of the VSL program. Prior to the finalisation of the re-approval process, you can enrol in the HLT54115 Diploma of Nursing at Think: Colleges that are scheduled to commence in 2022, but at this stage there is no certainty that VSL will be available for this/these course/s. If Think: Colleges’ application for re-approval is successful, you may be able to access a VSL for your study with us in 2022.

  • Complete their studies in another course or with another education provider or
  • Receive a refund of their unspent tuition fees (international students and prepaid HE students) or
  • A re-credit of their loan for open units of study (VSL and HELP)
