Higher Education Support Act 2003
Students may be entitled to OS-HELP assistance for periods during which they are undertaking study overseas, if they meet certain requirements. In particular, their higher education provider must have selected them for OS-HELP assistance.
The amount of OS-HELP assistance is limited to a maximum amount for each period of study, and only 2 such periods can attract OS-HELP assistance.
The purpose of OS-HELP assistance is to help students based in Australia to do part of their course of study overseas.
Amounts of assistance under this Part may form part of a person's HELP debts that the Commonwealth recovers under Part 4-2 .
