I have retired from the workforce and will become a self-funded retiree (receiving a pension from my super) very shortly. I am 57 and thinking about undertaking some university study (possibly leading to a degree). It will probably incur a HECS debt. I am doing to uni course because I'm interested in the subject and want to learn more about it.
I have been told that I won't have to pay it back if I don't get a job that uses my degree (which might take some years to obtain)? Is this correct?
