What does it cost to study in New Zealand?

Anyone who is not a citizen or permanent resident of Australia or New Zealand is classed as an international student, and as such is liable to pay international fees to study at university, college or high school in New Zealand.

Tuition fees are individually set by each university and college and so very considerably depending on the course being applied for and the institution that teaches it. Tuition fees are generally payable annually, at the beginning of each academic year.

In addition to tuition fees you will also need to budget for the cost of living.  The New Zealand government recommend that students budget between $15,000 - $20,000 NZD for the South Island and between $18,000 and $25, 000 for the North Island for living expenses per year, depending on location and lifestyle preferences.

The funding options for overseas study are currently limited. At the moment the UK and Irish governments will not allow you to use a student loan to fund any study in Australia or New Zealand. If you are not an Australian or New Zealand citizen you will also not be eligible to use a student loan from the Australian government.
