VET FEE-HELP Scheme replaced by VET Student Loans

On 5th October 2016, it was announced that the current VET FEE-HELP scheme will be replaced by VET Student Loans. The new program will focus on protecting students & weeding unscrupulous providers out of the sector.

TAFEs, public providers and Australian universities that are currently approved as VET FEE-HELP providers will automatically transition to the new program, however private providers will be required to meet a range of quality measures to be granted access.

Students currently studying under the existing VET FEE-HELP scheme will receive support and advice around maintaining their VET FEE-HELP assistance until the end of 2017.

A range of information on the new program and the transition from VET FEE-HELP is available from the VET Student Loans page of the Department’s website.
