VET FEE-HELP

Are the upfront costs of studying stopping you from improving your career prospects?


The VET FEE-HELP scheme allows you to study now and pay for your course later.

VET FEE-HELP explained

It is a loan for all or part of your tuition fees, which the Australian Government pays directly to Study Group Australia Pty Limited, the Registered Training Organisation of which ACPE Academy is a trading division.

The great thing about VET FEE-HELP is that you don't have to make any repayments until you have a job and your income reaches a certain level, which is $54,126 for the 2015/16 income year. The loans are then repaid effortlessly through the tax system.
