Interest-free loans

Helping to cover essential costs of living and study

We offer interest-free loans to our full-time students to help lighten the financial load.

We offer small loans of up to $2000 to full-time domestic students and international students in need of assistance.

If you’re struggling to cover essential expenses such as rent, transport and textbooks, contact our Scholarships and Financial Support Service to discuss your options.

All students enrolled full time are eligible to apply for an interest-free loan: undergraduate, postgraduate, domestic and international. Some part-time students may be eligible in certain circumstances.

Visit the Student website to find out if you are eligible for an interest-free loan and how to apply.

When do I need to pay it back?

You generally need to repay your loan within 12 months or before you graduate. This is agreed upon (in writing) at the time of your loan approval.

If you cannot comfortably begin repayments until the end of your degree, there are other options. We offer loans for students enrolled in specific degrees, including dentistry, health sciences, medicine, pharmacy and veterinary science. Repayment for these loans begins after you graduate.
