AMPA - Academy of Music and Performing Arts - AMPA Fees


AMPA is accredited as a Higher Education Provider (HEP) by the Commonwealth Government, allowing eligible domestic students to access FEE-HELP. The financial assistance available to assist students along with schedules are detailed below.

International Students

Information for international students can be found in the International Students section. 

Local Students

Local students have the option of paying tuition fees prior to the commencement of each trimester or deferring payment through FEE-HELP.

To be entitled to FEE-HELP you must be an Australian citizen or hold a permanent humanitarian visa. Students then repay the loan through the Australian taxation system once their income rises above the minimum threshold for compulsory repayment. Additional information about the FEE-HELP loan scheme is available from the Government website.

Centrelink Support Payments

Local students may qualify for Centrelink support payments while studying at AMPA. Students are typically required to be Australian residents and enrolled in at least 75% of the normal full-time study load. Further information about Centrelink support payments while studying can be obtained from Centrelink or by phoning the Centrelink national telephone number on 13 24 90.

Tax Deductions (Self-Education Expenses)

If there is a direct connection between your work and the course you enrolled in, you may be able to claim your tuition fees as a tax deduction. Please refer to the Australian Tax Office (ATO) for more information about how to claim self-education expenses, including eligible study and applicable caps on the amount that can be claimed. Tuition Fees can be claimed regardless of whether you paid upfront, or took out a FEE-HELP loan, but you need to talk to an accountant or the ATO about when you can claim the expenses.
