Pay for uni later with a HELP loan
Costs should never get in the way of university.
If you’re an eligible domestic student, you can take advantage of an interest-free loan from the Government, which means you can pay your tuition fees later. This is called a HELP loan. There are a few different options, but the most common are called HECS-HELP and FEE-HELP.
To apply for a HELP loan, you need to submit an application. You will receive instructions on how to do that after you accept your course offer. Find out more at When to pay your fees.
The Government pays your HELP loan fees directly to us, and you only need to start paying them back to the Government when you earn a certain amount. For more information, head to Australian Government StudyAssist.
What fees to pay
Each semester, you pay for whatever units you enroll in as part of your course. Available units and their fees are listed on your course page. Each course falls under two categories:
- Commonwealth supported place (CSP) courses; and
- full fee-paying courses.
Payless with a Commonwealth Supported Place
A Commonwealth-supported place (CSP) means that the Government pays part of your fees. It’s a subsidy, not a loan, so you don’t have to pay it back. Your course page will tell you if it is a CSP course.
The remaining balance is called your ‘student contribution amount’. You might be eligible to defer this with a HECS-HELP loan from the Government.
If your course doesn’t offer CSPs, that means it’s full fee paying. This means you’ll need to pay the full amount, but you can still get a FEE-HELP loan if eligible.

Domestic candidates do not pay tuition fees for research degrees at the University of Tasmania. International candidates pay a flat annual fee.
Other fees you may need to pay
The Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) is a compulsory fee that covers non-academic services. These services include employment and career advice, financial advice, childcare, food services and sporting and recreational activities.
You can get an SA-HELP loan to cover your SSAF, which means you don’t have to pay upfront. SSAF is built into full fee-paying courses for international students and full fee-paying courses for eligible domestic students. This means you won’t have to pay your SSAF separately.
