For Education Providers

ZeeFi Brand

We rebranded to solidify our position as a fintech partner of choice in the education sector. We needed a brand identity that speaks to what we stand for – speed, ease and, of course, finance. Additionally, this branding helps define the strength of our unparalleled sector expertise, along with our comprehensive suite of innovative fintech solutions tailored specifically to the needs of the education sector.

The name ‘ZeeFi’ suggests speed and simplicity, while strongly signalling finance. It represents our commitment to zipping up the gap between students and education providers, enabling both personal and professional growth.

We have changed our name to ‘ZeeFi’, introduced a new logo and changed our brand’s look and feel.

Our core point of differentiation from competitors is our specialisation in finance for the education sector. We understand the unique needs of education providers to grow opportunities and drive enrolments. Accordingly, we have designed a gamut of innovative finance solutions catering to the specific requirements of this sector.

We will be known as ‘ZeeFi’ from 21 February 2022.

Vocational Loans

Anyone who is:

  1. 18 years of age or older (or 16yo and older if a Parent/Guardian applies)
  2. Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident
  3. Earning an excess of $25,000 per annum with a good credit history

You can apply for your Vocational Loans via your Education Provider.

All you need to apply for a loan:

  • Medicare Card
  • Passport or Driving Licence
  • Employment Details
  • Income and Expenses Details

Yes, you must have an income. It can be part time, full time, casual or self-employed.

Let’s explain by using an example: If you are approved for a loan of $4,000, it means you are able to borrow up to that amount to pay for your course.

We release the funds in stages to your education provider, so you don’t pay for your course all at once – and these stages are what we refer to as ‘drawdowns’.

Therefore, your repayments will start low and only increase as each drawdown is released – we’ll take care of this for you.

Yes, you can pay off at any time and no early repayment fees apply.

Loans can be repaid weekly, fortnightly or monthly via direct debit from your nominated bank account. To help you stay organised, we’ll also send you a reminder the day before repayments are due to come out of your account.
