What is FEE-HELP?
FEE-HELP is a loan that helps eligible students pay their tuition fees, by deferring payment. Instead of paying up front, you repay your loan through the tax system when you start work and your income reaches a certain level.
University fee help enables more students to enrol on a career-focused undergraduate or postgraduate degree. It also offers financial peace of mind while you focus on your studies.
