Tertiary education is fees-free for eligible domestic tertiary students, including those who have previously undertaken less than 60 credits of study. To check if you are eligible for the scheme, go to FeesFree.govt.nz and enter your National Student Number (NSN). If you are not eligible you will be responsible for paying your fees.
For further information see our fees-free FAQs.
In New Zealand, you are expected to contribute to the total cost of your study in the form of a ‘tuition fee’. The remainder of the cost of providing your education is funded by government subsidy, research grants, the commercialisation of research and commercial activities.
You will also be expected to pay some administration costs which are called 'non-tuition fees'.
To get a true indication how much it will cost you to study at a tertiary institution, you need to consider the fees for your course, other study costs such as study materials, equipment or field trips where applicable, and factor in additional costs such as textbooks, accommodation and transport.
All University fees are payable immediately upon the University issuing a Confirmation of Enrolment and before the start of study, or earlier if required by the University and specified in an Offer of Place.
The information on these pages is for estimation purposes only. Actual fees payable will be finalised on confirmation of enrolment. Unless otherwise stated, all fees shown on this page are quoted in New Zealand dollars and include Goods and Services Tax. You should also read the University's Disclaimer Notice before relying on any information on these pages.
