Torrens University is a recognised Higher Education Provider. This means that eligible students have the opportunity to apply for the Australian Government FEE-HELP loan scheme.

 

What is FEE-HELP?

FEE-HELP is a loan scheme that assists eligible fee paying students to pay their tuition fees. Eligible person may borrow up to the FEE-HELP limit to pay tuition fees over their lifetime. For 2017, the FEE HELP limit is $100,879 for most students. The FEE-HELP limit is indexed on 1 January each year (as measured by the CPI index). A loan fee of 25% applies to FEE-HELP loans for undergraduate courses of study only. Indexation and the loan fee do not count towards your FEE-HELP limit.
Students repay the loan to the Australian Government through the tax system once a student reaches the minimum income threshold level for repayment, which for 2015-16 is $54,126.

2017 Course Fee Schedule

The 2017 Domestic Course Fee Schedule and 2017 International Student Course Fee Schedule indicate the cost per trimester for your course. The University reserves the right to increase your fees by up to 10 per cent in each calendar year that you are enrolled. This allows the University to adjust fees, if necessary, to cover increases in the cost of delivering your course.

Fees for each trimester must be paid before the trimester commences.

If you withdraw from a course or subject you will be eligible for a refund or a re-credit of your FEE-HELP balance in accordance with out Student Refund Policy or for international students, the International Student Refund Policy.

Tuition Assurance

If you’re a domestic student, your investment in your education is protected by Torrens’ membership of the TAFE Directors Australia Higher Education Assurance Scheme. If you are a domestic student, please refer to our Tuition Assurance Statement.

International students are covered by our membership to the Tuition Protection Scheme, an initiative of the Australian Government to assist international students whose education providers are unable to fully deliver their course of study. The TPS ensures that international students are able to either complete their studies in another course or with another education provider or receive a refund of their unspent tuition fees

In the event that Torrens University Australia defaults on a course in relation to an international student or intending international student by failing to provide the student’s course at the commencement date and agreed location, or ceases to provide the student’s course before completion, the University’s membership of the Tuition Protection Service (TPS) will ensure that the student receives a refund or is placed in an suitable alternative course.

Incidental Fees

Under the HESA Act, Universities are allowed, in specific circumstances, to charge students fees in addition to their tuition fees, for expenses that are incidental to their course of study. For instance, incidental fees can be charged for food, transport and accommodation costs associated with the provision of field trips that form part of the course of study.

In 2015, undergraduate students will be required to pay their own accommodation and living expenses during their overseas experience. If a student undertakes an trimester of study at a Laureate International University partner as part of their course, Torrens will make all the travel and accommodation arrangements and will cover the costs of airfares, travel and health insurance, and tuition fees at the overseas university.
