Services Australia financial support resources

The Australian Government has resources for school leavers to understand the costs involved with tertiary study and the financial support that may be available to them.

Services Australia has payments for students and trainees to help with the costs of uni, TAFE or doing an apprenticeship.

For example, if you’re thinking of enrolling in a full-time qualification after high school or doing an Australian apprenticeship, you might get Youth Allowance as a student.

To see what support payments you may be eligible for, use Services Australia's Payment and Service Finder. You can even get an estimate of how much your fortnightly payment could be.

Even if you’re not quite sure what course you’ll do next year, apply early. You can apply up to 13 weeks before your course starts.

Visit Services Australia for resources for school leavers about student payments and financial support.
