You are eligible for FEE HELP if you are an Australian Citizen, NZ SCV holder or Permanent Humanitarian Visa holder enrolled in an eligible Diploma at SAIBT and have not exceeded the FEE HELP limit through previous studies.

There is a loan fee imposed by the Government on all FEE-HELP loans. Repayments can be made through the taxation system along with other Higher Education loans. Compulsory repayments commence once taxable income reaches a threshold and voluntary repayments can be made at any time.

For information on financial assistance for your study, please go to the StudyAssist website.
