Up to 60,000 students per year will no longer have to pay
upfront fees to undertake vocational education and training.
Finally, VET diploma students will get the same rights that
university students have had for years:
- No upfront fees
- Access to an interest-free loan to pay for their study.
• Only having to pay that loan back once their income
reaches a certain level.
