We aim to approve applications within an hour if all the required information is supplied. Sometimes we need to take a closer look at your circumstances so we might ask for extra information to ensure we follow responsible lending conduct obligations. As a result, some applications may take longer to review as we wait for you to provide the extra information required.
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 – these stages are ‘drawdowns’.
Therefore, your repayments will start low and only increase as each drawdown is released – we’ll take care of this for you.
No, we pay your education provider upon your instruction.
Yes, you must have an income. It can be part time, full time, casual or self-employed.
Interest rates are determined on a risk profiling basis. We’ll provide you with an outline of the interest rate that could apply to your loan. You should consider whether this is right for you.
A credit score is a number (between 0 and 1,200) generated by a credit bureau. Your score reflects your borrowing history and if you pay bills on time. This helps lenders determine how likely you are to repay loans.
Refer to our Credit Scores 101 guide to understand your credit score and how to improve it.
