How does AIB offer such an affordable programme?

As an online MBA provider, we don’t have the expense of maintaining campuses and lecture theatres, so you won’t pay for things you don’t need. Instead, we invest in quality education and academic teams, student support services and innovative technological advancements.

Affordability that delivers what you need, not what you don’t.


The fees payable for AIB courses (tuition and non-tuition fees) are provided here for Australian students and here for international students.

Information about refund policies are provided in the Student Refund Policy, the Student Refund Procedure and the AIB Student Handbook which is provided to you prior to your acceptance of an offer into the course. In terms of tuition assurance, refer to the Tuition Assurance Statement on the AIB policies webpage.

FEE-HELP Information

The Australian Institute of Business (AIB) is an approved FEE-HELP provider. FEE-HELP is an Australian Government loan scheme, which assists eligible students to pay part or all of their tuition fees. Put simply, you can study now and pay your course fees later.

The Commonwealth Government pays the amount of the loan directly to AIB on the student’s behalf. Interest is not applied to FEE-HELP debts for approved postgraduate studies, including the AIB MBA course, however, an index amount is applied each year and this indexation amount is in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

Your eligibility for FEE-HELP is not affected by your income and assets. For more information about FEE-HELP and to check your eligibility, visit the Study Assist website here.  You can find information regarding course fees, key dates and EFTSL values of units offered for new and existing students here.

Important information about FEE-HELP loans effective from 1 January 2021

The Australian Government is extending the Unique Student Identifier (USI) from vocational education and training (VET) to higher education students.  These changes have been legislated in the Student Identifiers Act 2014 and the Higher Education Support Act 2003.

From 1st January 2021, it is compulsory for all new higher education students to obtain a USI in order to be eligible for Government financial assistance i.e. FEE-HELP.

A new student is anyone commencing a new course of study from 1 January 2021, and the census date for their first unit of study is on or after 1 January 2021.  Depending on the circumstances, this includes students who are changing their course or their course specialisation, completing one course and then progressing into another, those returning from a study break or deferral, or transferring from one provider to another.

You can read about your Fee Help Loan obligations in the government’s new 2021 Fee Help Booklet.

Since 1 January 2020, the Australian Government  combined HELP loan limits, placing a cap on what you can borrow from the Australian Government to cover the cost of your tuition fees. This has replaced the former FEE-HELP limit.
