Higher Education Loan Program (HELP)

The Australian Government administers the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) to assist students with the cost of their fees. The right loan for you will depend on your circumstances, eligibility and where you want to study. HELP loans are repaid through the tax system once your income reaches the minimum threshold for compulsory repayments.
