*A new application is required each year of study and is subject to a credit and affordability assessment, which determines what you qualify for. It is strongly recommended you keep finance low to avoid the risk of not being able to secure finance for the duration of the studies.

Insurance


Make sure you are covered


The student and the principal debtor must be covered. Insurance cover is compulsory and you may take our Customer Protection Plan, which covers you and the student in the event of death and permanent disability. Alternatively, you may need a suitable replacement policy if you wish to use your own insurance cover.
