FEE-HELP repayment calculator

If you’re considering a postgraduate course at Deakin, our FEE-HELP repayment calculator gives you the confidence to make university study a reality.

What is FEE-HELP?

FEE-HELP loans cover up to 100% of tuition fees for eligible students. By taking out a FEE-HELP loan, the government pays your tuition fees directly to Deakin, and the balance is repaid from your employment income – but only once you're earning over $45,881.

Please note: fees shown by the calculator are indicative only and based on 2020 rates. Actual fees may vary. We advise confirming fees with Prospective Student Enquiries prior to enrolment.
