The Australian government provides several options for assisting you to pay for your studies through tuition fee loans, living allowances and scholarships.
HECS-HELP is a loan which allows you to defer paying fees until you're earning a salary. If you're eligible for and are offered a Commonwealth supported place the majority of your tuition fees will be subsidised and you'll only be required to pay a portion of the total amount, which can be deferred through HECS-HELP.
A HECS-HELP loan can cover all or part of your student contribution amount, and you repay it through the taxation system once you're earning a certain salary.

If you're not eligible for or offered a Commonwealth supported place, you may still be eligible for a loan to help pay your tuition fees through the Commonwealth Government Fee-HELP program.
