Financial assistance

Are you experiencing financial challenges? Don't allow money to get in the way of your future.

We provide a range of options that may assist you in your situation.

At the beginning of each semester applications are open for students to apply for a scholarship (see below).

If you are eligible you may be able to apply for concessional rates.

You may choose to take advantage of a student loan through the Federal Government's VET Student Loan scheme, entry conditions apply, see below.

As part of the entry procedure if you enrol in a Diploma or Advanced Diploma, you will need to give us a copy of your Senior Secondary Certificate of Education (year 12 certificate).  If you don't have a year 12 certificate you must be assessed as displaying a required level of competence in both reading and numeracy.  To do this you will be required to sit a test to assess if you have the skills to give you a good chance of completing the course.

If you don't attain an "Exit Level 3 in the Australian Core Framework (ACSF) in both reading and numeracy" you will not be able to take out a VET Student Loan.

Please come and speak with the staff in Student Services who can explain everything in more detail.
