Every provider wants your business and it is up to you to do your research:  Have you compared the same course at different providers? If not, you can:  compare costs and if a subsidised CSP enrolment is available right now. You can search on www.courseseeker.edu.au for undergraduate CSPs or contact providers directly for postgraduate CSPs.  compare experiences, job prospects and starting salary of other students who studied in your study area at your provider at www.comparED.edu.au.  Do you know how much this course will cost you overall including if there are any extra administration or loan fees?  Do you have enough HELP balance to cover the cost of the course?  Are you aware of the deadline to withdraw so you don’t get charged? This is the same deadline to submit your HELP application form or pay your fees – otherwise your CSP enrolment will be cancelled.  Have you got your Unique Student Identifier? You will need one to access a CSP and a HECS-HELP loan when you enrol in a new course. There are many higher education courses in Australia where a student can access a Government HELP loan. Just like signing up to a phone plan, it is your responsibility to compare your options and know what you are signing up for when you sign the form and provide your tax file number.
