Students repay their loan to the Australian Government through the tax system once a student earns the minimum threshold level for repayment, which is $51,957 for the 2018-19 income year.  A VET Student Loan remains a personal debt obligation until it is repaid to the Commonwealth. It may reduce your take-home (net) wage or salary until the debt is repaid. It may also affect your borrowing capacity until the debt is repaid to the Commonwealth. You may wish to seek independent financial advice prior to applying for a loan. If eligible, you may loan up to $10,150 (applicable in 2018) / $10,342 (applicable in 2019) for approved courses at CMA.
