How does VET-Fee HELP assist me?
Flying has been out of range for a lot of people, now TVSA’s approved VET-FEE HELP courses will help you achieve your dreams!
TVSA is approved by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) to offer VET FEE-HELP loans to eligible students enrolled in the Diploma of Aviation Course. This means that you will be able to use the full loan amount (or your outstanding balance) towards your flight training.
You would start to repay your loan once you earn above the minimum repayment threshold (for the 2012-13 income year this is $49,095), visit http://studyassist.gov.au for further details. If you are eligible, you can borrow funds up to your lifetime FEE-HELP limit to help pay for all or part of your VET tuition fees. In 2013, the FEE-HELP loan limit is $93,204
Unlike some other aviation training schools, TVSA Pilot Training is the approved FEE-HELP provider not a associated University offering the credit transfer. Therefore, the full VET FEE-HELP amount can be put towards the flying training component.
It is important that you become familiar with the way the TVSA VET FEE-HELP program works. So please take some time and read the information contained on this page as well as the links.
Schedule of VET Tuition Fees
Please spend ample time becoming familiar with the Schedule of VET Tuition Fees. It is in this section that you will find information on course start dates, units of study, and fees that are included, and those that are NOT included.
Bare in mind that at TVSA, VET FEE-HELP is only available for the Diploma of Aviation (Instrument Flight Operations). Although we do offer a Certificate IV in Aviation (Commercial Pilots Licence), VET FEE-HELP may NOT be used towards this certificate.
