VET Student Loans
The VET Student Loans program allows eligible students enrolled in AIE's approved Diploma, Advanced Diploma and Graduate Diploma courses to defer part of the cost of their tuition fees. Courses are subject to maximum loan caps and students will be required to pay any fee over and above that cap. VET Student Loans replaced the VET FEE-HELP scheme. More information about VET Students loans is located on this page.

AIE offers scholarships to year 1 and year 2 students based on merit and financial hardship. More info here.
AIE appreciates that for many students payment of fees prior to the commencement of study can be difficult. For this reason, students may be offered the option of paying fees via a payment plan which allows for students to pay their fees via installments.
A first payment must be made on or prior to the due date on the invoice, with installments of a specific amount to be made as per the payment plan. Students are required to sign a Tuition Fee Repayment Contract when they make arrangements to pay using this option. The contract states that the student agrees to pay the fees by specific dates and acknowledges the terms and conditions of the contract.
