For the level of courses at the tertiary level, see 1.1.L.40. Students under the age of 22 who have reached the satisfactory progress time for their course must switch to YA job seekers and enter an EPP. They may be allowed to perform the YA activity test through a full-time study or through a combination of activities, including part-time studies, that must be documented in their PEP. You may still be eligible for assistance at home or abroad if it is difficult for you to study a full-time job. Centrelink may continue to pay you a student payment if any of the following conditions apply to you. For academic reasons, the workload of a higher or secondary student can be reduced to two-thirds of the normal workload, as example 1: Vincent is 20 years old and has completed one year of business management at university. He retired from the Bwusrig and switched to engineering after a year. With Vincent withdrawing from his previous trajectory for reasons that were not beyond his control, Vincent must respect the terms of an YA activity agreement until he completes his course in time considered a satisfactory advance in this course or is no longer qualified for YA, depending on the earliest moment. A young person is not considered a full-time student for YA purposes, if this is the case: the student loan is an interest-free voluntary loan that is made available to full-time students eligible for higher education receiving youth assistance, youth assistance or an abstudy subsistence allowance. The purpose of the loan is to help cover the pre-study costs, such as textbooks and specialized equipment. Explanation: A failure in a course is when a student is prevented by the institution from taking the course for any reason.
Payments for students managed by Centrelink are not paid indefinitely. A limit is set for the length of time you can continue to receive payment at each level of study. This limit is based on the course you are currently taking. Other studies you have already done at the same level can also be taken into account. It only takes into account the normal minimum duration of a completed course, whether you have actually studied longer or not. Payments for students managed by Centrelink are not paid indefinitely.

For higher education, the allowable time is the minimum time it would take to complete the full-time study cycle plus an additional period of study.
