There are two main ways to finance your studies. The two most common are upfront payments or a government subsidised loan called FEE-HELP, which is available to all eligible Australian citizens. Single unit enrollments are not eligible for FEE-HELP.



What is the difference between FEE-HELP and HECS?

Help Eligible Commonwealth Supported Students (HECS) is a government loan for eligible students studying at public universities and some approved private higher education providers. HECS is predominantly used for undergraduate studies, while FEE-HELP for postgraduate studies.

Who is eligible for FEE-HELP?

Australian citizens are eligible for FEE-HELP. You must also be enrolled into a unit with Monash Online by the enrolment deadline (census), and have not reached the FEE-HELP loan limit.

I’m an international student. Am I eligible for FEE-HELP?

International students are not eligible for FEE-HELP. However, some visa sub-classes may be eligible. Please visit Study Assist for more information.

What does FEE-HELP cover?

It covers course fees for award courses that lead to a recognised qualification, including a graduate diploma or master’s degree.

How much can I borrow?

You can only borrow for each unit of study. Therefore, the amount varies depending on which course you undertake. However, regardless of when you started studies, the FEE-HELP loan limit for 2017 is $100,879.

How do I apply for a loan?

Once you have successfully enrolled in a Monash Online course, you will be prompted to apply for FEE-HELP before the census date. You will need a tax file number to complete your application.
