VET FEE-HELP explained

It is a loan for all or part of your tuition fees, which the Australian Government pays directly to Study Group Australia Pty Limited, the Registered Training Organisation of which ACPE Academy is a trading division.
The great thing about VET FEE-HELP is that you don't have to make any repayments until you have a job and your income reaches a certain level, which is $54,126 for the 2015/16 income year. The loans are then repaid effortlessly through the tax system.
National Institute of Football can provide VET Fee Help to those candidates that qualify or payment plans are also available. To find out more just download the VET FEE-HELP Fact Sheet.
