  • Do I have to purchase learning materials?

    For students undertaking a degree, most of your learning materials are included with a free license provided to you by Swinburne Online. However, in some cases, you will be notified via your student email that you will need to buy specific software or eTexts. For TAFE Business students, all of your learning materials will be available online and are covered by your course fees. You won’t need to purchase any further materials.

  • What is the difference between a degree and a diploma?

    Offered by universities, TAFEs, Registered Training Organisations and Community Education Centres, a diploma is a practical qualification, while a degree is typically offered by universities and encompasses more academic courses. For more information about the different qualifications, visit our Online Courses page.

  • Where can I get important information about the VET Student Loan Program?

    You must read the VET Student Loans Information Booklet before applying for a loan. A VET student loan results in a HELP debt that continues to be a debt due to the government until it is repaid. You will start repaying the loan when you reach the minimum repayment threshold. The rate at which you repay the loan is based on your income, as you earn more you will repay a higher percentage of your taxable income towards your loan. Check the Study Assist website to find out more. We encourage you to seek independent financial advice to be sure a VET Student Loan is right for you.
