VET Student Loans is a Government loan program that helps students pay for their tuition fees up to a set amount (known as a loan cap). As the difference between the loan cap and course price varies by study mode, please speak to your Course & Careers Adviser about what this means for you.
The government directly pays AIT the amount of the loan, and students (that is you) pay it back through the Australian taxation system once their annual income reaches the minimum repayment threshold.
This amount is subject to change annually, you may view the threshold here. From 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023 the threshold at which you begin to pay back your loan is $48,361.
Eligible students can apply for a loan to pay for their fees up to capped amounts through the Commonwealth Government’s VET Student Loans scheme. The loan applies to eligible courses at the Diploma level or above. Academy of Information Technology is an approved VET Student Loans provider. For more information, read the VET Student Loan Booklet.
