FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE / CENTRELINK
Government assistance in the form of Youth Allowance, Austudy and ABSTUDY is available for eligible students studying certificate level courses full time at the Academy (or no less than 75% of a full time study load). Most of our standard study options meet this criteria, however your study load and eligibility may change based on your personal study plan and load.
Note that some of these schemes are means tested or only open to students in specific age groups. ABSTUDY is only available to students of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent. Contact Centrelink for more information and to see if you are eligible for any of these schemes.
Note: Since 01 January 2018, students commencing in diploma level courses are not eligible for Centrelink assistance any more.
