How gaining permanent residency affects your eligibility for FEE-HELP

I have been granted permanent residency (PR), can I get FEE-HELP?

You are only entitled to FEE-HELP assistance if:

  • you are an Australian citizen or a New Zealand Special Category Visa holder who meets the long-term residency criteria and who will undertake, in Australia, at least one unit of study contributing to your course; OR
  • you are a permanent humanitarian visa holder who will be resident in Australia for the duration of your unit; OR
  • you are a permanent visa holder who is undertaking bridging study for overseas-trained professionals, and will be resident in Australia for the duration of the study;

For more information on eligibility see the Study Assist website.
