VET Student Loans

On the 1st January 2017, the Australian Government introduced a new student loan scheme called VET Student Loans, replacing the VET FEE HELP scheme, which ceased on 31 December 2016.

VET Student Loans is a Government loan program that helps students pay for their tuition fees up to a set amount (known as a loan cap). Students need to meet eligibility requirements in order to access the scheme and the course debt is required to be repaid in full to the Commonwealth.

Think Colleges including CATC Design School, is an approved VET Student Loans provider and the VET Student Loans scheme is available for all of our courses. As the difference between the loan cap and course price varies by study mode, please speak to your Course & Careers Adviser about what this means for you.

Further information about VET Student Loans, including eligibility, is available at:
VET Student Loans website

Upfront payment

If you want to complete your qualification debt-free you can choose to pay as you go. This means tuition fees will be invoiced each trimester and payment is required on or before the due date using EFTPOS, credit card or Flywire.

But wait, you have other options!

Our sister college Billy Blue College of Design offers a Higher Education (HE) qualification that gives you the same employability outcomes and additional personal development opportunities.

Eligible students can also access a Government student loan covering all course fees and will graduate with a Higher Education qualification valued by employers. Read more about their courses in:
