WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

  • The course showed me how to successfully launch my business idea – from inspiration through planning and development to operating sustainably. It confirmed that I had most of the skills to make it happen, and provided those I didn’t.

  • I was drawn to the Dual Diploma program by its reputation as one of the best pre-experience management programs in Australia. It has helped me to clarify my goals, and given me the skills and knowledge I need to reach them.

  • The ‘Open’ enrolment format allowed me to balance my personal and business commitments over an 18 month period. The program really suited my busy lifestyle – I could come home from work, put the kids into bed and then start studying. I believe this is one of the best Diploma programs in the country.

  • The use of Vet Fee-Help has allowed me to pursue my leadership aspirations through study. With the financial assistance this provides, I can devote more time and energy to completing my Diploma with Alderdice & Associates Institute of Business & Management.

  • Being mature age, and not being able to get a job for 4 years, I was starting to feel depressed and believed that I would never be able to find employment. After completing the dual program, I had the confidence to apply for positions that I never would have thought possible. With the knowledge and skills that I now have, I am thriving in my new role! I cannot thank or recommend Alderdice & Associates enough!

POLICIES

Learning takes place online at our Virtual Campus rather than in a classroom,
allowing you complete flexibility to study when and where you want.

It’s different to other learning methods because it combines more one-to-one support than distance learning with more flexibility than campus-based learning to deliver world-class academic quality. This means you can study in a way that works for you whether you are at home, at work or on the move and get regular support from your lecturers, study advisers and other students through online forums or email.

It’s this unique combination of flexibility and support that makes our Virtual Campus such a successful method for program delivery.

Alderdice & Associates provides an interactive educational experience by utilising the latest in technology to support your studies.

Our courses are specifically designed to fit your lifestyle – and you can tailor your study to suit your needs.

Some of the benefits of studying through our virtual campus include:

  • The flexibility to start at almost any time.
  • Adjust your study schedule around work and life commitments.
  • The virtual campus gives you around-the-clock access to industry-leading education.
  • Collaborate with your peers.

We don’t provide boring classes, we facilitate rich learning experiences. Are you in?

VET FEE-HELP is a student loan that is funded by the Commonwealth Government to assist eligible students in Diploma level and above courses. VET FEE-HELP provides you with the option of either deferring all of your tuition fees; or paying some of your tuition fees upfront and deferring the balance.

The Commonwealth Government applies a 20% loan fee to the amount of VET FEE-HELP assistance provided.

Students commence repaying this loan through the taxation system once their income is over the minimum threshold for repayments. For the 2015 – 2016 year, this threshold is $54,126.00. It should be noted that we are confident that as a student of Alderdice & Associates, our qualification will assist you in securing a career with a salary in excess of this threshold and you will therefore commence repaying this loan.

Income each year before tax*Repayment %*

$54,126 – $60,2924.0%
$60,293 – $66,4564.5%

*This table is taken from the Study Assist website and is used as an indication only, annual repayment percentages increase with annual salary amounts up to $100,520 and above with a re-payment rate of 8.0% per annum.

You are required to provide your Tax File Number on your ‘Request for VET FEE-HELP Assistance’ form if you are applying for VET FEE-HELP.
You are required to have a Tax File Number to apply for VET FEE-HELP. Tax File Number applications are usually processed within 21 days. The ATO can issue you with a “Certificate of Application for a TFN” providing that you have already applied for a Tax File Number. This certificate is valid for 21 days from the issue date.
No application fees are charged for requesting VET FEE-HELP assistance. A 20% loan fee applies to full fee-paying students receiving VET FEE-HELP assistance. The loan fee is included in your VET FEE-HELP debt and will not decrease your FEE-HELP loan limit. Students in a Reform State or Territory will not incur a loan fee. Victoria is the only Reform State or Territory for the purposes of VET FEE-HELP.

No interest is charged to your VET FEE-HELP debt, however, your debt is indexed annually by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to maintain its real value. If you do not have a Tax File Number (TFN) you can request one from the Australian Taxation Office.

Course fees can be found under each qualification in our ‘courses’ page as well as in the ‘course calendar’ in the ‘start dates’ section of our website.

All assessments are competency based. In competency based assessment there is no fail. If you have been deemed Not Yet Competent (NYC) in an assessment task we will reschedule another assessment period and work with you to achieve a competent result.

Both the Testamur/Certificate and Statement of Attainment are nationally recognized.

Should you require Alderdice & Associates to re-issue a Testamur/Certificate or Statement of Attainment due to loss or damage, you can request this by contacting our Administration team (admissions@alderdiceandassociates.com.au). A fee of $25 will apply and is payable prior to re-issue.
