Eligible students can apply for a HECS-HELP loan to cover the upfront costs of all or part of your fees.
Alternatively, you can pay annually for the units you choose to study in that year.
This course can be paid for through the HECS-HELP government loan scheme. If you are an Australian citizen or hold a permanent humanitarian visa, you may not need to pay upfront.
Instead, the Australian government will pay your course fees directly to the provider on your behalf. You'll begin repaying your loan through the tax system once you start earning more than the minimum threshold of $54,869 (2016-17 income year).
