Why your HECS is changing

The Federal Government has announced it will wipe $3 billion in student debt and offer payments for some students undergoing mandatory placements. These announcements come a week before the Federal Budget and in the wake of recommendations made to the Government about how to reform the sector.

On today’s podcast, we’ll explain what the changes to HECS could mean for you and how the placement payments will work.
