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.
