About student loans

UNSW supports students experiencing financial hardship through the student loans system. Emergency assistance loans and long-term loans are available, and all loans are repayable and interest free. Both domestic and international students are eligible to apply. Students must satisfy specific application and approval criteria, and sign a legally binding contract that outlines the repayment arrangement. 

Applying for a loan

You can apply for a loan online. For loans of more than $200 you must provide documentary evidence in support of any claim you make on the application form. 

Missing payments

If you can’t meet your repayment schedule, you must immediately advise UNSW and renegotiate your loan contract. 

Other forms of financial support

If you need additional financial support as well as a loan, or if you didn’t receive a loan but need financial support, there are other ways you can get this.
