FEE-HELP Student Loans

What is FEE-HELP?

FEE-HELP is a loan scheme that assists eligible fee paying students pay all or part of their tuition fees. FEE-HELP is available for accredited higher education award courses provided by TAFE NSW, such as undergraduate and postgraduate degrees or graduate certificates. 

Students enrolled in TAFE NSW Higher Education courses pay a commercial fee for their studies. Fees for domestic students are calculated on a per subject basis and payable by semester. Domestic students can pay their fees up front or if eligible, take out a FEE-HELP loan and defer payment of fees until they reach a prescribed income threshold. Fees for international students are calculated on a full course basis and are payable by year.
