Hi, it's Maddie here.

When thinking about study at university, the costs and fees involved with studying can include tuition and amenities fees, textbooks, or sometimes equipment and uniforms.

So how might you pay for these uni fees?

Well you can look at applying for one of our many scholarships, you can pay your fees yourself, or if you're eligible, you can apply for a HECS-HELP loan.

A HECS-HELP loan is a government assistance loan. It allows you to defer your course fees for the duration of your studies.

Like any other loan, you will have to pay the government back, once you start to earn over $45,881.

Now this income threshold can change every year, so be sure to check the Study Assist website.

Once you have accepted your offer with CQUni, you will need to apply for HECS by submitting a form through our student platform.

Also don't forget, you will need a Tax File Number as well.
