Vet Student Loans

Fox Education and Consultancy is a government approved Vet Student Loan (VSL) provider, able to offer VSL to eligible students to assist with their tuition fees for the Diploma of Nursing.

If you’re eligible for the VSL, the Australian Government may approve your application for an approved course. This means they will pay your loan directly to Fox Education and Consultancy. The debt of this loan will then be managed by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).  The loan cap for the Diploma of Nursing as of January 2022 is $16,221.  You are also required to purchase other items related to your program, including textbooks and equipment. These are additional fees and expenses that are not covered by VSL.

A VET student loan results in a VSL debt that continues to be a debt due to the government until it is repaid. You will not have to start paying back the loan until you reach the compulsory repayment threshold. The compulsory repayment threshold is adjusted annually. As of January 2022, this threshold is A$47,014.


VET Student loans will not be approved for students that do not meet the eligibility requirements.
