Austudy and Abstudy
The eight unit Academic Studies in Theology Certificate is an approved course for Austudy and Abstudy payments, when taken by eligible students in a full time load or at least 75% of a full time load. A full time load is four units per semester.
Austudy and Abstudy are government payments to help you while you study. Austudy provides financial help to full time students and Australian apprentices aged 25 or more. Abstudy provides help with costs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians who are studying or undertaking an Australian apprenticeship. If you are eligible for Austudy or Abstudy, you may also be eligible for other payments.
