Hi, it’s Lucille here.

When thinking about university, the fees and costs involved with studying may include tuition and amenity fees, textbooks or sometimes equipment and uniforms.

So, what are the ways that you can pay your uni fees? Well you can look at applying for one of our many scholarships, you can pay for your fees yourself or if you’re eligible, you can apply for a HECS-HELP Loan.

HECS-HELP 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 then pay the government back once you’ve started to earn over a specific income threshold. The compulsory repayment threshold is adjusted every year, so be sure to check the Study Assist website.

Once you have accepted your offer with CQUni, to apply for HECS HELP you will need to submit a form through our student platform. And don’t forget you’ll need a tax file number as well.
