Bond Welcomes Fee-Help Funding Boost

Chancellor of Bond University, Mr Trevor C Rowe, AO DUniv, today expressed his gratitude to the Federal Government for the increases to the Fee-Help loan scheme for domestic students.

“I would like to thank the government for their generous provision for Higher Education in this year’s budget, particularly with regard to the extension of Fee-Help, which will go a long way to affording Australian students far greater freedom in choosing their higher education provider,” Mr Rowe said.

“The funding boost means private education is now more accessible than ever, and marks the significant commitment by our Government to a pluralistic approach to higher education in this country.

“The increased loan limits will undoubtedly improve the affordability of private education for Australian students, allowing greater access to universities such as Bond – a growing place of innovation and difference which brings a new dimension to tertiary education in this country.

“The higher loan limit means the majority of our students will now be able to fund their degree wholly through Fee-Help, rather than having to enter into commercial loans, which has to-date been a stumbling block for some students.

“Further, the rise in the loan available for medical students, from $80,000 to $100,000, will also make our sought-after medical program more accessible for students, and is a measure that should help alleviate the current doctor shortage in Australia,” Mr Rowe said.

Current or prospective students seeking further information on Fee-Help should contact Bond University Student Finance Officer Rodney Turnbull on 07 5595 1123, or [email protected]
