Financial Aid

Although you might think the cost of a university education is out of reach, many can and do afford it with help from the government. Depending on your household income level, you may qualify for a package of grants and loans to help cover the expenses of a tertiary degree.

The best place to go to find out about financial assistance available is http://studyassist.gov.au/sites/studyassist/helppayingmyfees/fee-help/.

Of course, not everyone who applies receives help. The assistance you will get will depend on your income level and the cost of the course you’re doing. The idea is to go to the website above, which is full of information about assistance packages for students.

Other good sources of information about financial assistance while you’re studying include:

Austudy

Austudy provides assistance to full time students who are over the age of 25. Go to http://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/services/centrelink/austudy for more details.

Abstudy

Abstudy is a financial assistance package for students of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent. Go to http://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/services/centrelink/abstudy for more information.
