American (US) Citizens
Because the Le Cordon Bleu Master of Gastronomic Tourism programme is delivered entirely online, students wanting to study this programme are not eligible for US Financial Aid. To be eligible for US Financial Aid, a student cannot be enrolled in courses offered by online, telecommunication or distance delivery in whole or part.
For more information visit the Federal Student Aid website.
Also, the US GI Post 9-11 Bill that funds US veterans can only be utilized for on-campus study. The United States Department of Veterans Affairs does not pay educational benefits for students at foreign schools for distance learning courses. Thus you will not receive funding to undertake the Le Cordon Bleu Master of Gastronomic Tourism.
New Zealand Citizens
New Zealand citizens are not eligible for Australian Commonwealth assistance (HELP loans) unless they are also Australian citizens or holders of a permanent visa.
Note: Most New Zealand citizens who arrive in Australia are the holders of a temporary visa called a Special Category Visa (SCV). This is not a permanent visa.
