All students will need to check their eligibility with Centrelink for any additional support they might be entitled to. For more information, visit the Human Services website.
FEE-HELP is the Australian Government’s student loan scheme that assists students to pay course fees, up to a lifetime limit, for eligible courses at approved higher education providers. The loan is repaid through the tax system once a graduate’s income reaches the minimum threshold for compulsory repayment.
Austudy and Youth Allowance: Undergraduates
If you are enrolled in a full-time undergraduate course you may be eligible for government income support such as Youth Allowance or AUSTUDY.
For Post-Grad Students
There is currently no Centrelink Austudy support for a postgraduate degree at AFTRS.
The Department of Social Services deemed that AFTRS Master of Arts Screen course did not meet the eligibility criteria for student payments, as the qualification was not required for entry to, or employment in, a profession.
AFTRS appreciates that Masters Students may need financial support and it is for this reason that we offer Equity Scholarships each semester. More information on scholarships is on our website.
