Are you a vocational education (VE) student?

If you’re a VE student, check your eligibility for a subsidy or fee concession to make sure your sponsor pays the correct amount.

How to set up a fee sponsorship

The Sponsorship Agreement Form registers the arrangement with Swinburne. This protects everyone involved and ensures you’re billed correctly. Sponsors pay fees in each relevant period of study, or through a one-off payment.  

If your sponsor fails to pay any invoices relating to your sponsorship, the sponsorship will be cancelled and you will be liable for all outstanding fees. 

After your sponsor has completed the full form (parts A and B) and you both agree to the Sponsorship Agreement Terms and Conditions [PDF 94.1KB] and sign section C, you can email it to


If you’ve paid online through My Financials you can get copies of your receipts at any time. Just log in and print a copy. 

For all other payment methods, you will receive a receipt when you pay, except for payments made via BPAY. These can be viewed on your bank statement. 

If you need a receipt for tuition fees paid directly to Swinburne prior to April 2014, you will need to submit an online request to get a copy of your receipt
