FEE-HELP Student

From 2018 the Australian Government will implement interim tuition assurance arrangements for FEE-HELP students. This means, in the event that the Australian Institute of Music (AIM) ceases to provide a course of study in which a student is enrolled, the interim arrangements will ensure that the student will be supported to continue their study with another provider in a similar course. If a similar course is not available, the student may be eligible for a re-credit for units of study commenced but not complete.

Upfront Payment

To safeguard against disadvantages to full fee-paying domestic students, due to unforeseen adverse provider circumstances, AIM is fully compliant with government financial and tuition assurance requirements protecting student interests, should they be unable to progress in an enrolled course of study.

The Australian Institute of Music (AIM) aims to provide adequate and easily activated dispute resolution procedures to deal with complaints/grievances and appeals. The Institute will treat complaints/grievances and appeals seriously ensuring that all processes are clear, confidential and fair to all parties. The best approach is to try and informally resolve the matter at the local level, before proceeding to a formal complaint. 

For more information see the Student Grievances and Complaints Policy and Procedure.
