Face-to-face Clinical Bridging Course (All Topics) - FEE-HELP

Face-to-face | 12 weeks | $9,600 FEE-HELP

Our Face-to-face Clinical Bridging Course is a full-time program taught by practitioners in their respective fields. During classroom-based sessions, you will be taken through a range of clinical subjects and learn how to apply them to practice in Australia.

FEE-HELP is available to Australian permanent residents and citizens. With FEE-HELP there is no up-front fee and the loan is interest-free. If you are not eligible for FEE-HELP, please consider our alternative online clinical courses. From January 2021, students who want to access the FEE-HELP loan scheme will need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). You can apply for a USI at this link.

Can you tell me more about the FEE-HELP loan?

You pay back your FEE-HELP loan through the tax system once you earn above the compulsory repayment threshold. The threshold for the 2019-20 income year is $46,620. You make no FEE-HELP loan repayments until you earn at least this amount. This course is a bridging course and no student loan fee applies.
