Higher Education HELP (FEE HELP)

Introducing FEE HELP

FEE HELP (FH) is a government initiative that allows eligible Learners to pay part or all of their course tuition fees via a government loan known as FEE HELP Assistance.
If a Learner accesses FH Assistance, the government will pay their tuition fees directly to the RTO. The Learner will then be required to pay the loan and a loan fee back to the government.

Only FEE Help approved providers can offer FEE-HELP assistance to eligible Learners. And, there are a lot of requirements and restrictions around FEE HELP Loans and it is important to know the details.
