Higher loan rates for creative media students at SAE Audio Institute

This petition had 19 supporters

I think it is unfair that students studying creative media and audio at SAE institutions in Australia are only entitled to a 10,000 dollar loan when all the diploma's are $18,000+. This forces them to pay the other $8,000+ upfront or pay a hefty $211 a month for three years (SAE student loan scheme). A lot of these students, including me are straight out of high school and are receiving government benefits for being full time students, and these benefits are very little that the students must use to pay for rent, food, utility bills and other living responsibilities. 

Therefore, students can't afford these monthly payments whilst they are studying which puts them through financial stress. Especially, if they are living away from home, independently and their parents can not support them.

So please, I am asking you on behalf of the creative media students at SAE Australia wide to allow them the maximum 15,000 dollar vet student loan. Doing this will allow students to concentrate on their studies and relieve financial stress because their monthly payments will be substantially lower.

We aren't asking you to bring back the VET Fee Help scheme. We are just asking you to to help us study financial stress free again

Thank you
