VET FEE-HELP is a student loan scheme for the Vocational Education and Training (VET) Sector that is part of the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP).

VET FEE-HELP assists eligible students to study VET courses with an approved VET FEE-HELP provider, to pay for all or part of their tuition costs. A VET provider is a registered training organisation who has been approved by the Australian Government to offer VET FEE-HELP assistance to their students. Students who access VET FEE-HELP assistance will have a loan with the Australian Government. The Australian Government then pays training RTO students tuition fees and students repay the loan through the tax system once they reach the minimum income threshold level. For the 2015-2016 financial year the threshold is $54,126. This is subject to change depending on federal government budgets and policies.
