Tuition Assurance and Provider Closures for VSL Students

'Tuition protection' refers to the protections and assistance available to support VET Student Loans (VSL) students, FEE-HELP and HECS-HELP students and international students, in the event that their education provider defaults (ceases delivering a course or closes entirely).

This page contains information about tuition protection for VSL students at private providers. In the event of a course or provider closure, VSL students will be supported to continue their studies with a replacement provider in an equivalent or similar course. In some circumstances, students may be entitled to receive a loan re-credit for parts of the course commenced but not completed.

Non-VSL Students

If you are a higher education student or provider, and would like information about tuition protection, please visit the Higher Education TPS page.

If you are an international student or international education provider, and would like information about the Tuition Protection Service, please visit the International Student TPS Page.

If you were a VET FEE-HELP student whose provider closed, the VET Student Loans Ombudsman (VSLO) is best placed to assist you. Please visit the VSLO website for more information or call the VSLO on: 1300 362 072 (select option 2).

If you are a domestic VET student accessing state funding or subsidies, please contact your state or territory's Department of Education.
