What is FEE-HELP?

FEE-HELP is an Australian Government loan scheme that assists eligible higher education students, enrolled in fee paying places, to pay their tuition fees. It applies to undergraduate study as well as postgraduate coursework and research study.

Students are not required to begin repaying the accumulated loan debt until their taxable income rises above the compulsory repayment threshold.
