Help with managing your money
Interest-free student loans
Griffith University provides interest-free student loans to help students with the cost of education and living expenses.
Eligible students can apply for a loan of up to $1,000 to be repaid within 12 months for domestic students or six months for international students.
Loans of up to $1,500 are available for domestic students to assist with major course-related expenses.
If you experience financial difficulty but cannot afford to repay a student loan, you can make an appointment to talk to a Welfare and Student Liaison Officer to explore other financial options.
Experiencing extreme financial difficulty?
If you cannot afford to pay back a student loan, you may be eligible for a one-off Education Costs Bursary (PDF 265.54kb) of up to $800 or a GUPSA, Guild, GCAP & SRC Education Costs Bursary (PDF 150.90kb) of up to $800.
To check your eligibility for these or other bursaries, please make an appointment with a Welfare and Student Liaison Officer who can assess your situation and make an appropriate recommendation.
