Financial Help for Students

Australian residents may be eligible to receive a variety of payments and subsidies to help them study.

Youth Allowance, AUSTUDY and ABSTUDY are support payments intended to cover a student’s general living expenses. Many Australians are eligible for one of these payments. Please contact the Department of Human Services for more details.

The Victorian Training Guarantee provides a subsidy for people undertaking an approved Victorian course that is at a higher level than any they have studied before (other conditions apply). This discount is included when we give you a quote. Please contact us to talk more about it.

Students who are single parents, caring for someone with special needs or are receiving a Disability Support Pension may be eligible for the Pensioner Education Supplement. Please contact the Department of Human Services for more details.

Trade Support Loans are low interest loans for people studying approved trades, agriculture and horticulture courses (including apprenticeships). Trade Support Loans can be spent on anything you need to learn your trade, including tools.

A VET Student Loan is a low interest loan scheme for approved Diploma, Advanced Diploma and Certificate IV courses. Under both schemes, eligible students can avoid paying their course fees up front. They only need to start paying them once they earn a substantial wage ($54,869 for the 2016-2017 financial year). A low rate of interest is charged. Please note that a VET Student Loan also includes a loan fee and can not be used to cover amenities, materials and some other fees and charges. Students should refer to the Institute’s VET Student Loans Student Entry Procedure for information on eligibility to access VET Student Loans.

Please contact us to talk more about these loan programs.

If a student has children, they may be eligible for Jobs, Education and Training Child Care fee assistance. This offers additional assistance to the Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate. Our Mildura Campus is home to TAFE Kids Inc, a centre offering child care and kindergarten services. It provides care to children of SuniTAFE students, staff and the general public. Please contact the Department of Human Services for more details.

Some software companies provide substantial discounts to SuniTAFE students. These include Microsoft and Adobe. Please talk to the SuniTAFE Bookshop for details.

The Support for Adult Australian Apprentices initiative can provide support payments to both apprentices aged 25 and over, and their employers. Please contact us for details.

Students may be eligible for Rent Assistance to help with accommodation costs. Our Mildura Campus includes Student Residences which can provide students with single and shared rooms in close proximity to all our campus facilities. Please contact us for details about our residences, and the Department of Human Services for information about Rent Assistance.

If you live near one of our campuses and plan to use a bus to attend classes, you may be eligible for a Victorian Public Transport Student Concession Card. This card gives people cheaper bus fares. Apprentices, people undertaking courses of less then ten weeks duration and part time students are not eligible. Please contact Public Transport Victoria for more details.

Students needing to leave home to attend one of our campuses may be eligible for the Fares Allowance. This can assist with up to three trips per year between the locality where you study and where you originally lived. If your trip involves Victorian buses or trains, having a Victorian Public Transport Student Concession Card will likely reduce the cost further. To learn more about the Fares Allowance, contact the Department of Human Services.
