Special conditionsNo-interest indexed OS-FEE-HELP loans and a La Trobe Study Abroad subsidy may be available. You need to ensure your own eligibility. Different travel and study subjects operate at different times throughout the year, and only at one time in the year. Check the timetable. Students enrol in these subjects in the normal way, and pay the normal higher education contribution fee. Students also pay an extra fee for these subjects to cover their additional cost of travel, accommodation, some meals, and some entrances to galleries and museums. Students can opt to take out a no-interest indexed loan to cover these additional costs through the Commonwealth OS-FEE-HELP scheme. La Trobe's Global Lounge has full details.
