Australia's leading education payment provider

Edstart is making school fees and education costs easier to manage for thousands of Australians.

Our mission and purpose

Edstart was founded by a passionate team of Australian education and finance specialists who believe in the power of education. We're committed to building solutions to support access to learning and help students reach their potential.

Our goal is to help people to fund their education costs in a sustainable, flexible and low-cost manner that leaves schools, education providers, families and students in a better position. All of our products have been designed from the ground up with this ethos in mind.

Edstart is an independent Australian business supported by the backing of leading institutions such as National Australia Bank.

Helping thousands of Australians with their education costs

"Having moved back to Sydney from New York, I thought things were going to get easier. But it is way harder to make ends meet in Sydney than it ever was in New York.

Edstart has freed up the finances so that my son Max, who was in the gifted and talented programs in New York, can attend Reddam House and continue to flourish in his education. ”

"It was comforting knowing that one payment was coming out of my account each month, rather than having to find lump sums to pay the school.

It’s really about the convenience and ease of having one regular, manageable payment. Edstart was really flexible – they tailored a plan to suit our needs, setting a sum and timing that worked for us."
