The TPS is an initiative of the Australian Government to assist domestic higher education students if their education provider is unable to fully deliver a unit of study and/or their course of study to their students.
The TPS is a placement, refund and loan re-credit service for students who are affected by a provider closing or ceasing to deliver a course.
For domestic students the TPS will provide students with the option to either:
- receive help to find a suitable replacement course, or
- receive a loan re-credit for incomplete units.
