The University provides a scheme for making a loan available to students who demonstrate a genuine need for assistance. As funds are limited, the scheme is reviewed annually.
Applications will be assessed on a needs basis, subject to availability of funds. Particular attention will be paid to the requirements of students from country or isolated areas, and students from disadvantaged groups such as low-income groups.
Assistance will be provided if it appears that without a loan, the student will be unable to pursue the course or will suffer undue hardship in doing so. Students receiving a loan will need to ensure that they have the capacity to repay the loan. A loan will not be provided to cover HECS debts.
A loan of up to $500 will normally be short-term for up to a period of no more than twelve months. The loan is interest free.
