How much Austudy you will get, and your payment options.
In this section
The amount of Austudy you get depends on how much you earn and how much your assets are worth.
Personal income test
We use income and assets tests to see if you’re eligible for a payment and work out how much you’ll get.
We use the assets test to help us work out if you can get Austudy and how much you'll get.
You may get part of your income support payment or Family Tax Benefit (Part A) early. This is an advance payment. You pay it back later out of your payments from us.
Weekly payment option
Some people can get income support payments each week instead of each fortnight.
Low Income Health Care Card
If you're getting Austudy you may also get a Low Income health Care Card.
