Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS)

The system introduced in 1989 which required higher education students in places subsidised by the Commonwealth Government to make a contribution to the cost of their course, underpinned by income contingent loans. ‘HECS’ places are now called ‘Commonwealth-supported places’ for which there is a ‘student contribution amount’ with loans and discounts for up-front payment under HECS-HELP.
