Any updates on permanent residents with FEE-HELP, because reading this just made me depressed.

My husband was hoping to have a career change as we were planning what he could do once we get to Australia, although we are still waiting for the visa to be approved.

Have you looked at this: https://www.studyassist.gov.au/help-...-csps/fee-help

The 201819 Federal Budget contains a number of measures that affect Higher Education students.

Here is a link to the current situation, it appears to have remained as it was previously, only Citizens are eligible for Commonwealth sponsored places, and loans, permanent residents pay local not international fees.

When I completed my 4 degrees 1974... degrees were free and students received an allowance. Sole parents could receive the sole parents benefit plus the allowance.
I have been thinking about applying for FEE-HELP to undertake an online law degree, perhaps a JD.

I emailed Study Assist and asked them what are our options. Let's see what they say.

When I started this thread it appears many of the things that were said that night effecting many people on this forum seem to have "vanished"... eg Harder English Test

Even the recent links in this thread are "(subject to the passage of legislation) ". attempts to find out more have not been answered, ) I meant to MP's etc.
it is now less than a month away !!!

So it looks like it (the proposed changes) is not going through.

Quote:
Page updated 21 December 2017
Improving the sustainability of higher education
A previous proposal to extend HELP loans to NZ citizens and Australian permanent residents (and remove access to CSPs) will not proceed.

Current and Future Students
What are the arrangements for NZ citizens and Australian permanent residents from 2018?

The Government will not proceed with previously proposed changes to extend access to the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) to all Australian permanent residents and all New Zealand citizens. Eligibility for access to a Commonwealth supported place (CSP) will remain as per the established legislation.

Permanent humanitarian visa holders and New Zealand Special Category Visa holders who meet the long-term residency requirements will continue to be eligible for both a CSP and HELP loans.

Well Turnball got Hecs repayments changed a couple of weeks ago.
"On 1 July 2018 the threshold falls by more than $10,000,"

Now it is 2018 Financial year, anyone know the facts about whats changed ?

Here is a link to the quote above.Click here. takes you to a 'The Guardian' news story.

These changes about PR, Hecs/VET Loans and importantly removing PR holders from Comm courses makes a hue difference for many, actually making people just wait a year or more before starting their professional education.


Anyone know ?
