I think you are wrongly informed. If you are a permanent resident and went through all the procedures for that you do qualify for a student loan.

You do not qualify if you are a NZ citizen. They can enter and work and study in Australia and pay a lot taxes but hardly qualify for anything. This is very wrong as Aussies are very generously treated in NZ and qualify for everything. The tale that there are so many Kiwi's in oz is wrong too, as each country have 2% of their people being Kiwi or Oz.

So, it depends on your citizenship and on the type of visa/permanent residency you have.
