Payment Options


SAE is listed as an approved provider under the Commonwealth of Australia Higher Education Support Act 2003. This means our courses including bachelor degrees, associate degrees, and VET diplomas attract Fee-Help/VET Fee-Help for Australian students.

Fees are processed on the census date of each trimester, based on the HE unit or VET unit price. For further information, visit Study Assist's fact pages on Fee-Help or VET Fee-Help.

Upon applying for an SAE Course, you will also be sent an information pack on Fee-Help or VET Fee-Help.

Trimester Instalments (Domestic)

If you choose not to apply for Fee-Help or VET Fee-Help, tuition fees are paid upfront in trimester instalments. The first payment is due on the day of your course commencement.

Trimester Instalments (International)

The first trimester of tuition fees must be paid on initial registration. All further tuition fees are paid in instalments at the beginning of each subsequent trimester.
