OK, I just got off the phone to TAFE (got sick of them not replying to my email enquiry!!!). I was told that on the 309 I would pay the exact same fees as my husband would as a citizen. I have asked another person at TAFE to check that is really so and they were going to ask a manager and get back to me later today.

OK just got off the phone with second person at TAFE NSW who confirmed that on a 309 the fees were the same as for a citizen

The only difference is the VET Help loans. As a 309 you are not eligible to get a cheap student loan towards your study. In other words you have to be able to pay your fees upfront.

I can confirm it's the same in WA. 309/820 is classed as having PR as far as TAFE is concerned.

It's the same for the AMEP English language classes. You aren't eligible to enroll until you have been granted the 309/820. It's different from Medicare whereby you can register with Medicare as soon as you have *applied* for the 309/820, whereas TAFE stipulates that you must have already been granted it.

Then you pay the same fees as an Australian citizen.

Hey All

Am looking to study too, and been calling / emailing and with no luck.

Am on a PR Subclass 100, and when called the Open.edu.au they said as a PR I might not be eligible for a loan ( Hecs or help)

On the immi website they say as a 309 TPR you are entitled to study but with no help of the Gov.
But on a PR you can : study and work (with no reference of HELP)

So kinda confused about if we are entitled for a gov help loan or not?

Only Australian citizens are able to access a HELP/HECS loan. So you're more than welcome to enroll in a university, but you'll have to pay up front each semester just like an international student.

HELP / HECS are only for citizens.

International students pay international student fees.

PRs pay domestic student fees upon enrollment and every semester thereafter.

Citizens pay domestic student fees, too, but pay later under the HELP/HECS scheme (repay when you start working and when your income exceed certain thresholds). Repayment is deducted from your tax every year when you do your tax return.

Everyone gonna pay for their own higher education, just the amount and how you pay for it.
This is how I understand it. Please correct me if I'm incorrect.

There's a nice wizard on this website and you can put in your citizenship/resident status and it tells you what you're eligible for.

It looks like PR can get access to a FEE-HELP loan for bridging courses, but no other courses are eligible.
