Free fees for the first year of study

The New Zealand government has introduced new policies to make tertiary study more affordable.

One year of fees-free study

The government has announced details of its policy of one year of fees-free study for students new to tertiary education. They’ve set up a website to help you find out if you are eligible.

Go to www.feesfree.govt.nz to check your eligibility.

Have your National Student Number (NSN) handy. If you don’t have your NSN the website will tell you what you need to do to get one.

There are answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) on the Fees Free site too.

If you are a New Zealand citizen or resident who has lived in New Zealand for three years and will be studying at tertiary level direct from school, it is highly likely that you will be eligible for fees-free.

What do the free fees cover?

The government will pay the equivalent of one year of full-time study (typically 120 credits). If you are studying part-time, you can spread this out over a longer period.

Student loans

f you are eligible for fees-free study, and have already applied for a student loan, then you can cancel or reduce the amount of your loan. If you haven’t applied for a student loan, you will only need to apply for the living-costs portion. Check the StudyLink website to make sure you understand what these changes mean for you.

What happens if you don’t complete your study?

If you enrol in courses and then withdraw, you may lose your entitlement to fees-free in subsequent years.

Increases to student allowances and loan entitlements

From 1 January 2018 student allowances and loan entitlements will increase by $50 per week. No change is being made to eligibility rules for either of these. For more information see the StudyLink website
