The cost of education

It’s easy to overlook the total cost of education. Along with yearly school fees, you’ll need to consider costs such as uniforms, camps, computers, textbooks and music and sports equipment and trips.

ASG’s education cost calculators are a free resource that help parents estimate the potential cost of their child’s education—from preschool through to university.

ASG's HELP debt calculator

Australian students studying at university are eligible for government loans and subsidies to relieve the cost of post-secondary education as part of the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP).

ASG’s HELP debt calculator provides an estimate of the predicted HELP debt for a student studying at university based on their total fees, years of study and expected salary upon joining the workforce.
