Information about FEE-HELP
FEE-HELP is an initiative of the Australian Government that allows eligible students not receiving government support to study now and pay later for their tertiary education. FEE-HELP is a loan from the Australian Government. FEE-HELP fees are paid directly to UTS:INSEARCH. Students repay their FEE-HELP debt through the tax system as soon as the student’s income passes a certain level. UTS:INSEARCH is approved to offer the FEE-HELP loan scheme to eligible students.
A loan fee of 25% is levied by the Australian Government on FEE-HELP loans.
- There is no application charge
Who is eligible for FEE-HELP?
Only Australian citizens or holders of an Australian Permanent Resident (humanitarian visa only) and some New Zealand citizens are eligible. If students are eligible and wish to apply for FEE-HELP, they should contact the UTS:INSEARCH student centre to obtain a Request for FEE-HELP assistance form and information pack.
How do I apply for FEE-HELP?
To secure your place at UTS:INSEARCH you must either pay your fees upfront as a non FEE-HELP student or complete and return the Request for FEE-HELP Assistance form to UTS:INSEARCH Student Centre prior to semester commencement. Places in some courses are limited so an early response is desirable to secure a place.
Please note a tax file number is required to complete the Request for FEE-HELP Assistance form.
Full details of the loan scheme can be found on the Australian Government's Study Assist Website website.
