VET Student Loans (VSL)

VET Student Loans (VSL) is an Australian Government loan scheme for the Vocational Education and Training sector. Students studying certain Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas may be eligible to apply for a VSL to defer their tuition costs (up to the VSL course cap), if not wanting to pay their tuition fees upfront. Other fees associated with your course or tuition fees over the VSL course cap cannot be deferred to a VSL.

For further information, please visit the Australian Government's Your Career website for detailed information about financing tertiary study. Email if you have any further questions about VSL and your studies.
