Study Loans is a new kind of finance for students seeking assistance in paying for their education.

They are Australia's first dedicated private student loan provider, allowing you to borrow all or part of your course costs through a responsible and controlled funding program. Study Loans offer highly competitive rates, simple terms and allow students to have control over their loans and empower them to manage and track these loans effectively.
