What is FEE-HELP?
FEE-HELP is a loan scheme, provided by the government, that assists eligible students in the payment of part or all of their tuition fees. You can find more information here: https://www.ait.edu.au/government-student-loans
Over their lifetime, eligible students may borrow up to the FEE-HELP limit. For 2022, the FEE-HELP limit for most students is $109,206. There is also a FEE-HELP loan fee* of 20 per cent.
Students (that’s you) pay it back through the Australian taxation system once their annual income reaches the minimum repayment threshold.
The threshold amount is subject to change annually. For the 2021 - 2022 income year, the threshold is $47,014.
