RMIT is here to help you make sense of the important information you need to assist your child with their tertiary options after secondary school.
New TAFE Student Loans from 1 January 2017
From 1 January 2017, the Australian Government will no longer offer VET FEE-HELP (VFH) loans and a new VET Student Loans program will commence.
If your child is commencing a new TAFE program after 1 January, 2017 you will need to apply for the new VET Student Loans program.
How to apply
RMIT is waiting on more information from the Government about the eligibility criteria and how students will apply for the new loan scheme. We will contact all TAFE students when the application form is available to complete online. This form needs to be completed before the first class census date.
For more information and updates on this new loan scheme, go to the Australian Government VET Student Loans webpage.
