We've Got Your Back

Student Support

At Flight Centre Travel Academy, our number one priority is helping our students achieve their industry goals. 

Find Out How We Support Our Students

Student support can come in a variety of ways. From mental and physical well-being to Fee-Help options. Learn more about the student support with offer. 

Fee-Help

Our delivery partner, Torrens University Australia is a recognised Higher Education Provider. This means that eligible students have the opportunity to apply for Fee-Help to defer payment of some, or all, of their tuition fees.

Repayments commence via the tax system once your income rises above a minimum threshold ($47,014 as of the 2021-2022 financial year).

How do I apply?

If you receive an offer from Flight Centre Travel Academy and Torrens University Australia, you will also receive a Request for Fee-Help Assistance Form that you will need to complete to defer payment of some, or all, of your tuition fees. You will need to quote your tax file number or provide a Certificate of Application for a Tax File Number. The form must be returned to Torrens University Australia before the commencement date of your course.
