FAQ – What’s the difference between VET FEE HELP and HECS?

The Australian Paramedical College has never offered VET Student Loans. Our philosophy has been one where we believe to truly embrace adult education, there must be some form of financial commitment from students. This has proven to be very successful from a student perspective, where course completion rates are high compared to the approx 75-85% drop out rate for students who chose other colleges offering government funded training.

VET Student Loans replaced the VET FEE HELP because of bad practices from unethical RTO owners. Read all about this here: Information on VET Student Loans (not offered by The Australian Paramedical College)

NOTE: The College offers affordable and flexible payment plans with low deposits and flexible contributions.
