Fee payment options
AIM is a registered Higher Education Provider which means eligible students studying our undergraduate and postgraduate courses are able to access FEE-HELP. This is the Australian Government’s Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) to help students with the cost of course fees. If you're an Australian citizen or hold a permanent humanitarian visa and reside in Australia, you can apply. Visit Study Assist or call 1800 020 108 for more information.
FEE-HELP Loan Fee Exemptions
As further support in response to COVID-19, the Australian Government also announced a FEE-HELP Loan Fee Exemption for students commencing studies from May 1st 2020. Click here for more details (subject to legislation).
If you don’t qualify for FEE-HELP, or you prefer to pay as you go and finish your studies debt-free, upfront payment is the way to go. We’ll invoice your tuition fees each semester and you can pay via direct deposit/transfer, credit card or Flywire.
If you’re an Australian citizen or permanent resident, you can apply for additional government assistance through Austudy.

Tuition Assurance Arrangements
From 2018 the Australian Government will implement interim tuition assurance arrangements for FEE-HELP students. This means, in the event that the Australian Institute of Music (AIM) ceases to provide a course of study in which a student is enrolled, the interim arrangements will ensure that the student will be supported to continue their study with another provider in a similar course. If a similar course is not available, the student may be eligible for a re-credit for units of study commenced but not complete. For more information visit: Department of Education and Training.
To safeguard against disadvantaged to full fee-paying domestic students, due to unforeseen adverse provider circumstances, AIM is fully compliant with government financial and tuition assurance requirements protecting student interests, should they be unable to progress in an enrolled course of study.
