Did you finish Year 12 (or equivalent) in 2023? Have you or will you relocate from regional or remote Australia this year to study (Certificate IV and above)? You might be eligible to apply for the Tertiary Access Payment.

The Tertiary Access Payment is a payment of up to $5,000 to help students pay for items such as rent, travel expenses, food or study supplies.

The payment helped Ronald when he relocated from Mildura to attend La Trobe University in Melbourne. 

“It was my first time moving away from home which means I had to face some things like paying rent. I didn’t have enough savings when going into uni and I feel like it helped me a lot. I would highly encourage people to apply,” said Ronald.

Applications close on 31 December 2024. To find out if you’re eligible and to apply, visit Services Australia.
