When to claim

You can claim Austudy up to 13 weeks before you start your course or Australian Apprenticeship.

You can claim up to 13 weeks before you start if you’re either:

  • planning to study full time
  • doing a full time Australian Apprenticeship.

Claiming early means you’re more likely to have your payment ready to go when you need it.
