Financial Help

Financial Help.

Sometimes juggling life expenses can be hard, especially when unplanned expenses pop up.

UNE offers support to students that are facing financial hardships. The best place to find information about domestic and international student loans is here.

We would also advise that you understand your personal finances… The below links are filled with information that might help you!

If you’re struggling with your budgeting or really just don’t know where to start you can talk to our team of independent Advocates.

Centrelink Applications and Issues

As a student, you may be receiving or need to receive Centrelink payments. Sometimes organising this can seem a little overwhelming…

  • Do you need help sorting your Centrelink payments?
  • Perhaps you have inadvertently found yourself with a Social Security Debt and need to know what’s next?
  • Need help with correctly declaring your earnings to Centrelink?

If one or more of the above sound like you, our Welfare Officer’s can help you negotiate your way through the Centrelink red tape to make sure you are getting the payments you are entitled to.

Student Emergency Assistance Funds

Funding has been made available from the University to support quick response grants for UNE students experiencing financial hardship impacting their ability to continue their academic studies (course program or research) at the University.

Please note, these funds are administered by the UNE Scholarships office. At Advocacy & Welfare, we provide you with independent and confidential advice to assist with your application. We do not determine the results of applications or allocate funding.

To receive this fund you will need to provide:

  • Proof of your situation
  • Proof of your income
  • Proof of how you would use any received funds to help your successful continuation of study at UNE
