VET Student Loan Information Overview

The Redcliffe Aero Club is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) that has been approved by the Australian Government to offer VET Student Loans to eligible students undertaking approved higher-level VET qualifications (e.g. Diploma, Advanced Diploma, Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma courses).

If you are thinking of enrolling into a VET course at the diploma level or above, you may be eligible for a VET Student Loan to pay upfront for your tuition fees.

Whilst you do not pay for the course on enrolment, the VET Student Loan becomes a HELP debt with the Commonwealth Government and needs to be repaid.

These loans are only approved on meeting certain eligibility and entry criteria. (please refer to the VET Student Loan page for detailed information).

VET Student Loans can be used to fully or partially cover the cost of course tuition fees. It is charged on a phase by phase basis for the entire VET course of study unless the student wishes to contribute payment towards the tuition fees.

Tuition fees covered through VET Student Loans cannot be used to pay for other expenses such as textbooks, equipment, travel and accommodation.
All of The Redcliffe Aero Club Diploma courses have a VET Student Loan payment option available for eligible students.

Please note, that the federal government applies a one-off 20-25%* loan fee to your loan amount if you are a full fee-paying or fee for service student.
This loan fee does not apply towards your total FEE-HELP limit.
