Finances involved with studying can sometimes be a strain. But ACPE’s range of courses are covered by government financial help, so you can relieve some of the burden (eligibility criteria apply).
Austudy provides financial help if you are aged 25 years or more and studying an approved full-time course at an approved institution. Please visit the Austudy Payments section of the Centrelink website for more information.
Abstudy is a living allowance for Indigenous secondary or tertiary students, for which local ACPE students may be eligible. Please visit the Abstudy Payments section of the Centrelink website for more information.
You may be eligible for Youth Allowance if you are 16 to 24 years of age (or 15 years if considered independent) and studying full-time at an approved institution.
Please visit the Youth Allowance section of the Centrelink website for further information regarding your eligibility.
