Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham, Minister for Education and Training, recently commenced a comprehensive review of the VET Student Loans eligible course list.
The review will examine, consult widely with stakeholders and consider:
- methodologies for determining eligible courses
- methodologies for determining loan caps
- appropriate processes to update the eligible course list and loan caps.
Views put forward during last year’s consultation process will be captured by the review and used to inform a discussion paper. This discussion paper will be released on the Department of Educations and Training’s website by April.
A full copy of the terms of reference for the review can be found on the review’s website which can be accessed at education.gov.au/vet-student-loans/VSLmethodology. Please check the website for further information.
