VET Student Loans

The Australian Governments VET Student Loan program commenced on 1 January 2017, replacing the VET FEE‑HELP scheme, which ceased on 31 December 2016


What is VET Student Loans?
VET Student Loans is a loan program that helps eligible students enrolled in higher level vocational education and training courses at approved course providers pay their tuition fees.

A person’s access to a VET Student Loan is approved by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training. You access the loan for your course, and the debt is then managed by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

SRI is covered under the National Tuition Protection Assurance Scheme

A VET Student loan may be available to students for all or part of their course fees, subject to eligibility criteria and available places.
