FEE-Help

As part of NTI’s and the Australian Government’s initiative to make education more accessible, NTI has been approved as a FEE-HELP Provider.

FEE-HELP is an interest-free Australian government loan scheme available to eligible* Australian students which allows students to defer payment of tuition fees for approved courses at higher education institutions. The government pays the amount of the loan directly to the student’s higher education provider. Students repay their loan through the tax system once their income is above the minimum threshold for compulsory repayment.

There is a FEE-HELP limit of $104,440 in 2019 and $106,319 in 2020 for students. No loan fees or application fees apply to postgraduate students.

Please note FEE-HELP assistance does NOT cover voluntary subscriptions or any other costs associated with studying at NTI.

Students must apply for FEE-HELP assistance by the census date of each subject and provide their tax file number (TFN). Students who do not provide their TFN on or before the census date will not be eligible for FEE-HELP and will be required to pay their fees upfront in full to the Institute.
