Stress-free school fees

A personal loan is a great way to pay for your child's school, extra tuition or higher education fees. You could also borrow to cover all of those back-to-school expenses such as uniforms, text books, stationery and even school camps, all with the peace of mind that you’ve got it all covered.

With our great low rates, you could save on interest compared to putting these expenses on a credit card, and with no ongoing monthly or early repayment fees you can pay the loan off sooner.

Why get a personal loan?

If you want to significantly reduce the amount of interest you incur over the lifetime of multiple debts, or you’re tired of managing several debt repayments at once, debt consolidation may be a good option for you.

Using a secured or unsecured personal loan from SocietyOne for debt consolidation can make budgeting easier, so you only need to keep track of one regular payment and could save you money thanks to our great low rates. Plus, with SocietyOne there are no early repayment fees, so you can pay off your debt faster and without penalty.

Frequently Asked Questions

Things to consider before getting a student loan

To get a personal loan, you may need to supply us with the following information and documents as part of your personal student loan application:

  • Your personal details – name, address, date of birth
  • A driver’s licence or passport
  • Proof of your address - for example, a utility bill
  • Proof of your income in the form of payslips or bank statements
  • Details about your day-to-day expenses, and any other debts

‍ If you’re applying for a secured personal loan, you’ll also need to provide asset details as part of the verification process.

The documents we require depend on your ownership of the vehicle but it will help to have these things handy:

  • Registration certificate
  • Proof of insurance
  • Invoice or proof of private sale, if you are purchasing a vehicle

Yes, we use this and assess your financial situation to calculate your interest rate & reward borrowers who have maintained good credit scores. Receiving a rate quote from us will not impact your credit score. We use what is called a 'soft call' to get your credit score from the credit bureau which allows us to calculate a personalised rate for you. However, once you have submitted your loan application, we will conduct a credit check as part of our assessment process. This check is known as a 'hard call' and will be reflected in your credit score.

Personal loan repayments can be made in either fortnightly or monthly instalments by direct debit.

Your regular repayments are calculated based on your loan amount, interest rate, loan term (2, 3 or 5 years with an unsecured loan or up to 7 years with a secured loan), and whether you have chosen fortnightly or monthly repayments.

The first thing you should do is check your eligibility with the lender. If you're looking to apply for a personal loan with SocietyOne, you'll need to ensure you meet our lending criteria below:

  • You need to be at least 18 years of age
  • Be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident of Australia
  • You must earn more than $30,000 per annum
  • It's important that you have a good credit history

If you're applying for a secured personal loan, you will need to have an asset to pledge as security. At SocietyOne, your asset will need to meet a minimum value, depending on the amount you wish to borrow. Acceptable assets include:

  • Vehicles (passenger and light commercial vehicles)
  • Motorbikes
  • Caravans
  • Marine (boats and personal watercrafts)

We do not accept heavy commercial vehicles.

You will need to provide asset details, proof of ownership or purchase invoice, and insurance as part of the verification process.
