As a Kiwi, am I eligible for student loan and student allowance in Australia?
No, unfortunately New Zealanders are not eligible for any Centrelink payments until they become permanent residents. Even then there is a stand-down period of 2 years.
My daughter moved over to Perth from NZ. She will be studying online with Massey University (distance online) and will be entitled to a student loan and she can also apply for a student allowance. Go to Massey University website and study link for more information.
In reponse to Cons reply regarding her daughter studying via Massey and the availability of student loan and allowance, could I please get a bit more info please on who to contact regarding loans, allowances etc?
She might be able to apply for Student loan and Allowance via studylink if she is going to study in Massey Uni - as long as it is New Zealand approved
