VET Student Loans assistance is a loan from the Commonwealth. The loan will remain as a personal debt obligation until it is repaid to the Commonwealth. The loan may affect (by reducing) your take-home (after-tax) wage or salary, and may affect your borrowing capacity until the debt is repaid to the Commonwealth. Students are required to repay this loan through the taxation system once they earn $54,869 (2016/2017 income year).

When you enrol in a course of approved study with CHARLTON BROWN, you will be required to complete a Request for VET Student Loan form. When you sign this form you are applying for a VET Student Loan for the loan cap for the VET qualification you will study. You will be charged for the qualification on a unit by unit basis.

For every unit of study in the qualification there is a Census Date. Your VET Student Loan will be debited for any tuition fees that remain unpaid after choosing to continue each census date. If you choose to withdraw from a unit of study prior to the Census date, there will be no tuition fee for this unit added to your loan.

This Commonwealth Government program allows you to access loans for courses that:
– have a high national priority
– meet industry needs
– contribute to addressing skills shortages
– lead to employment outcomes
