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.
