Financial Assistance

Financial support for elly lukas students

It’s never been easier to achieve your goals with an elly lukas qualification.

There are now 3 ways in which you can receive financial support to support your career plan.

1. Government Funding

Subsidised Places

Under the Skills First program the Victorian Government provides subsidised places for eligible residents in the SHB50115 Diploma of Beauty Therapy course.

This means that a lower tuition fee is applicable to eligible government subsidised students.

Am I Eligible for a Government Subsidised Place?

In general, you are eligible for a government-subsidised training place if you are:
  • studying in Victoria for the duration of your studies
  • an Australian citizen, or;
  • an Australian Permanent Resident (holder of a permanent visa), or;
  • a New Zealand citizen, or;
  • an Asylum seeker/victim of human trafficking (you must have ARC/ASRC referral, or online VEVO validation by Institute staff)

and are any of the following:

  • under 20 years of age
  • any age and seeking to enrol in a Foundation Skills List course (and do not hold a Diploma or above qualification or are not already enrolled in Commonwealth ‘Skills for Education and Employment’ program)
  • any age and seeking to enrol in VCE or VCAL
  • any age and seeking to enrol in an apprenticeship
  • 20 years and older and ‘upskilling’ by seeking to enrol in a course at a higher level than your existing qualification (some exemptions and exclusions apply)

and finally are:

  • commencing/concurrently studying no more than 2 government-subsidised courses in a calendar year (some exceptions apply) 
  • commencing no more than 2 government-subsidised courses at the same Australian Qualification Framework level in your lifetime (some exemptions apply).

If you are enrolled at a secondary school, you will not be able to receive a government-subsidised training place for a course, unless you are undertaking the course as part of a School-Based Apprenticeship or Traineeship. 

The Government supports schools in other ways to offer vocational training to their students, so you should discuss all your options with our Course Advisors.

Note: Age is calculated as at the first day of the calendar year (1 Jan), in which students enrol to courses.

You are also required to:

  • obtain a USI (Unique Student Identifier) prior to enrolment as part of your eligibility for a government subsidised place.
  • show evidence of your citizenship/residency and age at enrolment. This can include one of the following (original or certified copy required, plus an additional photocopy to submit):
    – current green Medicare card
    – an Australian birth certificate (not birth extract)
    – current Australian passport
    – current New Zealand passport
    – naturalisation certificate (Australian citizenship certificate)
    – formal papers from DIBP confirming permanent residence.

If you are under 20 proof of age must also be presented, if not included in one of the above documents.

This can include:

  • Driver’s license or learner’s permit
  • Proof of Age card
  • Keypass card

For details of all eligibility and exemptions please refer to the Skills Victoria website : 

https://www.skills.vic.gov.au/victorianskillsgateway/Students/Pages/vtg-eligibility-indicator.aspx

3. Study Loans

Policies and Procedures

Student Entry Procedures

Applicants who wish to access VET STUDENT LOANS must also provide the College with a copy of a Senior Certificate of Education (VCE or VCAL) that has been awarded to the student by an agency or authority of a State or Territory for the student’s completion of year 12; OR evidence of successful completion of an Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) Certificate IV or higher qualification (where the language of instruction is English) OR
 
The student is assessed as displaying competence at or above Exit Level 3 in the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF) in both reading and numeracy which must be conducted with honesty and integrity (see https://www.acer.edu.au/cspa/core-skills-profile-for-adults) AND the College reasonably believes that the students displays that competence. The College will arrange for students access to complete the assessment. The results of the assessment will be reported to the student as soon as is practicable after the assessment and may be provided to the Secretary of the Department of Education & Training. Results are retained by the College for 5 years.

Citizenship Document Requirements for VET Student Loan

An Australian Passport is suitable evidence of Australian citizenship. Otherwise, the evidence required to demonstrate that an applicant is an Australian citizen may differ depending on whether the applicant was:

• born overseas
• born in Australia before 20 August 1986
• born in Australia on or after 20 August 1986
 
Applicant was born in Australia on or after 20 August 1986 and one of their parents was an Australian citizen 
at the time of their birth

Applicants may provide their Australian Passport. 

Alternatively, where one (or both) of the applicant’s parents was an Australian citizen at the time of their birth, the applicant will need to provide their full birth certificate issued by an Australian RBDM and one of the following documents to show that one of their parents was an Australian citizen at the time of their birth: 
 
• their parent’s Australian citizenship certificate or
• if their parent was born in Australia before 20 August 1986, their parents full birth certificate issued by an Australian RBDM or 
• if their parent was born in Australia on or after 20 August 1986, their parent’s full birth certificate issued by an Australian RBDM and their grandparent’s Australian birth certificate issued by an Australian RBDM
 
If the applicant cannot provide this they must apply for their own evidence of Australian citizenship by lodging Form 119 Application for evidence of Australian citizenship with certified copies of the required documents and the application fee with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIB).
 
For more information about applying for evidence of Australian Citizenship see : 
 
https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/citi/curr/evidence-of-australian-citizenship/apply
 
Applicants born in Australia before 20 August 1986 
 
Applicants may provide their Australian Passport. 

Alternatively, applicants will need to provide their full birth certificate issued by an Australian Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages (RBDM). 
 
An exception to this is where the applicant’s parents were in Australia as diplomats or consular officers at the time of the applicant’s birth. In these circumstances, the applicant will need to provide a citizenship certificate as evidence that they are an Australian citizen. 
 
If the applicant does not have a citizenship certificate they will need to lodge Form 119 Application for evidence of Australian citizenship with certified copies of the required documents and the application fee with DIBP.

Papua New Guinea became a sovereign nation on 16 Sep 1975 (PNG Independence Day). Assessing Australian citizenship status
of people born in PNG prior to 16 Sep 1975 can be complex. DIBP is aware that in the past this cohort of people has been incorrectly issued with an Australian passport based on an incorrect assessment of their citizenship status. As such, the citizenship status of some applicants born in PNG prior to 16 Sep 1975 must be checked and verified with DIBP. 
 
Applicants in this category will be referred to DIBP to obtain evidence of Australian citizenship by lodging Form 119 Application for evidence of Australian citizenship if: 
 
• evidence of citizenship was PNG prior to 16 Sep 1975; or issued before 1Jan 2009 and the applicant was born in
• citizenship was acquired PNG before 16 Sep 1975 by descent before 1Jan 2009 where the parent(s) was born in 

A citizenship certificate can be accepted as evidence that the applicant is an Australian citizen if the evidence of citizenship was issued on or after 1 Jan 2009 regardless of the acquisition date or date of birth. 
 
What evidence do I need to provide if I am holder of a Permanent Humanitarian Visa? 
 
When you applied for your course and your eligibility was assessed you will have provided the documents required to confirm your status as a Humanitarian Visa holder. 
 
What evidence do I need to provide if I am a New Zealand citizen?

• to meet the other eligibility criteria for a HELP loan under the Higher Education Support Act 2003 (HESA). 

You will be required to provide the following documents as part of your application:
