VET FEE-HELP is a loan that the Australian Government provides to eligible students to help pay part or all of their tuition fees for approved vocational education and training (VET) courses.
If you are eligible, you won't need to pay for your course upfront. Instead, you can borrow up to the total tuition fee. The Australian Government pays the amount of the loan on your behalf and you start repaying through the tax system once your income reaches the minimum repayment threshold. For the 2011-12 income year, the threshold is $47,195.
Just about every Australian citizen is eligible for VET FEE-HELP. Only those who have reached their VET FEE-HELP lifetime limits are ineligible.
