What is FEE-HELP?
FEE-HELP is a government loan given to eligible fee paying students to help pay part or all of their tuition fees.
With a FEE-HELP loan a student can choose to defer paying their fees upfront to the university. The debt is then reported to the Australian Taxation Office. Once the student's income reaches a certain level they repay the loan through the tax system.
