Those who care about you don't want to see you fail – but backing yourself emotionally, and possibly financially, is crucial. Depending on your family’s circumstances, you may need to get a part-time job while you’re studying.
We’re the lucky country for so many reasons – one being our access to world-class tertiary and higher education (that you don’t have to pay for up-front). If you’re an Australian citizen, you can get a HECS-HELP loan and pay back higher education fees when you start earning the nominated amount.
If you’re studying at TAFE, there are also many free TAFE courses you can access and begin your dream career – or pathway into a higher education degree.
VU’s Block Model and VU Polytechnic’s Blended Learning are structured to give you time for a life outside of your studies - so you can work to support yourself.
