Hi @Abunayeem,

 

As @Alyce previously said, you would need to contact Services Australia. They administer Austudy and would be able to give you information on the circumstances where it might need to be repaid.

 

You can ask them general questions through their social media channels or you can call them.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi @Abunayeem,

 

Thank you for your reply. Austudy is reportable on your tax return under Government Allowances and payments. I have provided the link for you.

 

Hope this helps.
