Fees are payable before you start your study. The amount you pay will depend on the qualification you are enrolled in and whether you are studying on campus or by correspondence.

There are final dates that must be met if you change your qualification or withdrawn from your course of study.  Failure to meet these dates will mean that you will not be able to make changes and you will be required to pay any tuition fees incurred.

If you have any fees outstanding from the previous year (semester), you cannot continue studying or graduate until the debt is paid in full.

All fees are reviewed every year and are subject to change. 

FEES FREE for 2019

If you think you qualify for fees-free in 2018 head to www.feesfree.govt.nz to confirm this at the fees-free website. You will need to have your National Student Number on hand to check this.
Go through the checklist here to make sure you’re ready for study.
