Guides & Guidelines as made
This instrument amends the FEE-HELP Guidelines 2017 to specify additional aviation courses that are subject to the higher Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) loan limit in section 128-20 of the Higher Education Support Act 2003 (HESA). Schedule 1 of the Education Legislation Amendment (2019 Measures No. 1) Act 2019 introduced a measure to increase the combined HELP loan limit for students undertaking eligible aviation courses on or after 1 January 2020 at higher education providers approved under the HESA and vocational education and training (VET) providers approved under the VET Student Loans Act 2016. The instrument commences retrospectively on 1 January 2020. This aligns with the commencement of the amendments that were made to the Guidelines by the 2019 instrument which introduced the higher HELP loan limit for aviation courses. It was not intended that current students studying in superseded aviation courses would be excluded from the higher HELP loan limit.
