Financial help


We are an approved VET FEE-HELP assistance provider. VET FEE-HELP assistance is available to students enrolling in both government-subsidised and fee-for-service Skills Deepening level courses. Skills Deepening level courses include diplomas, advanced diplomas, vocational graduate certificates and vocational graduate diplomas.


If you are an Indigenous student or a full-time apprentice, ABSTUDY may help you stay in training or go on to further studies. It consists of a fortnightly living allowance as well as additional components to help with the costs associated with studying. Indigenous students are also assisted by the Indigenous Completions Initiative, under which they pay only the minimum tuition fee for enrolment in government-funded training at all levels, including diploma and above.

For more information visit the ABSTUDY area of the Department of Human Services website.

Pensioner education supplement

If you receive a Parenting Payment Single or the Disability Support Pension you may also be eligible for extra assistance while you are studying.

For more information, visit the Pensioner Education Supplement page on the Department of Human Services website.

Eligibility for government-subsidised training

The Victorian Training Guarantee is making vocational education and training more accessible to people who do not hold a post-school qualification, or who want to gain a higher-level qualification than they already hold. There are now an unlimited number of government-subsidised training places available to people who meet the eligibility criteria. Find out if you are eligible for government-subsidised training on the Victorian Training Guarantee website.

Preparing for study

If you would like help preparing for study, you might be interested in our FedReady program for new enrolled students.

FedReady is a five-day group course for all higher education students to help them understand what is expected of them and what they need to do to succeed at university. The program provides a range of learning opportunities and regular feedback on practical tasks.
