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 the cost of their tuition fees. More information about VET Students loans is located on this page.

The Australian Government VET Student Loan website provides detailed information about assistance for financing tertiary study:


AIE offers scholarships to Diploma and Advanced Diploma students that are not eligible for VET Student Loans based on merit and financial hardship. More information on scholarships can be found here.

Payment Plans

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.

Certain courses, such as the C++ Programming Foundations course, require students to have completed their payment plan and paid in full prior to gaining access to the course.

For more information, please discuss with your local campus.
