FEE-HELP is a loan for eligible tuition paying postgraduate students. In order to receive the loan a student must complete a FEE-HELP assistance form by census date.

To be eligible for a FEE-HELP loan you need to:

  • Be an Australian citizen or;
  • Be the holder of an Australian permanent humanitarian visa.

Visit the HELP loans webpage for details on how to access a FEE-HELP loan.

Before applying for the FEE-HELP loan please first read the FEE-HELP information booklet.

If you are eligible for FEE-HELP you will be prompted to complete the form when enrolling via My Student Info.

If you are a New Zealand citizen who is on a SCV and:

  • First entered Australia as a dependent child aged under 18 years of age;
  • Have been ordinarily resident in Australia for the previous 10 years (that is, you have physically been present in Australia for at least eight out of the past  10 years) and 18 months out of the last two years by the time of the application for the loan; and
  • are otherwise eligible for the loan.

 You will need to submit an ‘Addendum for eligible New Zealand Special Category Visa holder to request Commonwealth Support and HECS-HELP form (1290A) – 1300A’. This can be requested through the HE Team. You must be residing within Australia whilst undertaking your studies and will be required to provide evidence that you have been living in Australia for the qualifying period mentioned above. If necessary, you can obtain copies of your international movement records from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection by lodging form 1359 (available at www.border.gov.au).

If you hold a New Zealand SCV but then apply for, and are granted, a permanent residency visa, your HELP eligibility would change to that of a permanent visa holder (non-humanitarian subclass).

Permanent visa holders (non-humanitarian subclass) are eligible for Commonwealth supported places but they are not eligible to access a HELP loan for tertiary study.
