What is a tuition fee loan?


A tuition fee loan from Futurity can cover the cost of private school fees for Australian primary and secondary school students. Our tuition fee loans can also help you to pay for other education-related fees like levies, uniforms, textbooks, excursions or extra-curricular activities - as long as they’re listed on the school’s invoice.



With private school fees increasing faster than inflation, the expense is starting to eat into a larger part of many Australian families' budgets. So easing the pressure of when you need to make repayments may be an A+ choice to help you smooth out the costs of your child’s tuition throughout the year.



As our tuition fee loans are continuing credit contracts, when you complete your current repayment schedule you can use the loan again, within the approved loan limit, for future school years.



Part-year funding is also available; but the repayment schedule cannot exceed the period of the invoices being funded.



Plus if you want an additional loan or limit increase, you can apply through our online portal. Where your previously saved application details will ensure a streamlined and simplified application process.

          Apply for a tuition fee loan online

          

          Use our easy online application form to apply for one of our tuition fee loans for Australian private school fees. One Tuition Fee Loan is required per school. So if you have multiple children at the same school then you only need one loan, and you’ll only have one repayment. If you have multiple children that go to different schools then a separate loan for each school is required.

          

          This loan is a consumer loan and is regulated by the Consumer Credit Code. Specifically this loan is a continuing credit contract which means the borrower can draw down on the loan on an ongoing basis much like a credit card.

          

          When you apply for a tuition fee loan online, your application will be credit assessed (for your capacity to repay), credit checked and identity checked. If we have everything we need, we’ll get back to you within 2 business days with a decision.
