Higher Education Provider (HEP)
In 2006 the Australian Guild of Music Education Inc. was passed as a HEP provider. Commonwealth assistance is now available for students who are eligible. FEE-HELP is a loan scheme which assists eligible students (Australian citizens and students on humanitarian visas) to pay their tuition fees. The Australian Government pays the student’s tuition fee to the Australian Guild of Music Education on behalf of the student. This relates to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Music course.
