Course payments


The VET Student Loans scheme is a loan program designed to help eligible students, who could not otherwise afford to pay fees upfront, enrol at TMT and gain knowledge, attitude and skills to work in the entertainment industry as a professional makeup & hairstylist/designer from a quality, higher level Vocational Education and Training.

If you are an eligible student, the Department of Education and Training (the department) may approve your VET Student Loan for our approved courses. The department will pay your loan for your fees directly to TMT. You will be responsible for any gap amount in the tuition fees, which are not covered by the loan.

You will owe a debt to the Australian Government for the loan, which will be managed by the Australian Taxation Office.

VET Student Loans are only available for Approved Course Providers and Approved Courses.

TMT is an Approved Course Provider (as of 1 January 2019).


Eligible students are entitled to loans up to a capped amount of $16,211.00 and can be used for when apply for:

CUA51020 Diploma of Screen and Media,
CUA60620 Advanced Diploma of Screen and Media,
SHB50115 Diploma of Beauty Therapy

Students must pay a Gap Fee for the difference between the capped loan amount and the course fee.


A census date is the last date on which a student can withdraw from a unit of study without incurring a debt for that unit of study. A student’s census date is calculated as their nominated start date plus 20% of the course duration.


When your income reaches the repayment threshold, you will be required to start repaying your loan. The threshold can be found at

VET Student Loans gives rise to a HELP debt that continues to be a debt due to the Commonwealth until its repaid.


If TMT ceases to provide a course in which you are enrolled, TMT will ensure that you are offered enrolment in a similar course of study. Alternatively, TMT will:
• Refund any upfront payment for any unit of study due to TMT ceasing to offer that course
• Re-credit your loan balance for the affected unit
• Act in accordance with the Statement of VET Tuition Assurance


• Check if you meet the eligibility and entry requirements. Be prepared to provide evidence of identification (including your Australian Birth Certificate), records of your past academic qualifications and you may be required to undertake the Language, Literacy and Numeracy assessment.

• You must have a current Tax File Number. This detail is required on your loan application form.

• Read VET Student Loans Information Book


Non-State Government-subsidised students are charged a 20% loan fee. The loan fee is added to the student loan, but not included within the student’s lifetime FEE-HELP limit.


If you are an eligible student studying a Diploma and you withdraw before the census date you will receive a 100% refund of any tuition fees you have paid upfront and will not incur a student loan debt.

If you are an eligible student studying a Diploma and withdraw after the census date you will incur a debt, unless the debt is remitted under special circumstances.
