Course Fees

Gestalt Therapy Brisbane is a small private provider of higher education. It relies solely on student fees to deliver its courses and to manage its operations. It is the intent of the directors of Gestalt Therapy Brisbane to match fees to the level that will ensure the delivery of a high quality program.

Adjustments will be made to the fee structure each year as is deemed necessary.

Students may pay their fees directly to GTB or if eligible take advantage of the Commonwealth Government’s FEE-HELP loan scheme

The, SSAF spending is managed by a student focused Advisory Group which makes recommendations to the Academic Leadership Team. The Academic Leadership Team approves how SSAF will be allocated to service providers to spend each year. When making decisions, the Academic Team is informed by student consultation through:

  • the annual SSAF survey conducted in July
  • an advisory group of elected student representatives

For 2024 the students have elected to spend the SSAF on the same priorities.

Tuition Assurance

GTB provides tuition assurance to enrolled students through the Tuition Protection Service (TPS). The Tuition Protection Service (TPS) delivered by the Federal Government covers GTB`s FEE-HELP and upfront, or direct fee-paying students.

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.
