Our Practical Legal Training program has academic status as a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice which means you may be eligible for a FEE-HELP loan.

FEE‑HELP is a loan scheme that assists eligible students pay all or part of their tuition fees. It does not cover study costs such as accommodation and textbooks.  

Loans are only available to Australian citizens or to students who hold a permanent humanitarian visa. Loans are also only available to students who undertake at least part of their PLT in Australia.

You can apply for a FEE-HELP loan when completing your online enrolment form.
