Moving away from home to study can be expensive – not only do you need to think about uni fees, study materials, and transport, but what if you need to rent a place to live as well?
Thankfully, there is help out there. If you’re getting ABSTUDY or Youth Allowance, you might also be eligible for Rent Assistance. This is a fortnightly payment that can ease some of the burden of rent payments.
