What is it?

As Australia’s first dedicated student loan provider we aim to provide you with a truly flexible loan product that allows you to pay for your study as you progress through the course.

You decide how much you would like to borrow, and we provide the flexibility to access the money as needed. Because you access the money as needed, you only need to repay the amount borrowed, each time you increase your borrowing we will automatically adjust your repayments to make sure they stay up to date, and your loan is repaid on time. We directly pay the education provider – hassle free.

How does it work?

Find the course that’s right for you, with any one of our Education Partners.

Apply for the course and Study Loans funding via our Courses Page or your chosen course provider.

Funds are released, directly to the course provider, in drawdowns, as you progress through your studies

Why Study Loans?

Study Loans aims to offer competitive interest rates for students looking to take the next step with their education.

Rates are calculated on a risk-based pricing model using a rich data set that takes into account both your situation and the chosen area of study.

Borrow all
or part of
the cost
Study Loans can help you fund entire courses, part of your course, and/or be used in conjunction with personal funds, government, or gifts. The choice is yours.
Study Loans uses a competency based, pay‑as‑you‑go funding method.

This means that the funds for your education are only made available as you progress through your chosen studies. If your circumstances change, you may be able to suspend your studies and suspend future drawdown payments of the loan. You will of course be required to continue to pay off the drawdowns already released.
