Fees Estimate

Courses are the building blocks for every programme of study and each course will have a cost associated with it. The total cost of a year’s tuition is the sum of all fees for courses you are enrolled in. The cost of an individual course can be found on the relevant Course page. Each course is worth a certain number of points and it is these points that count towards your qualification when you have passed the course. The more work a course requires, the more points it's worth. Typically, a full time student will study around 120 points each year.

The table below is an estimate of the yearly tuition fees (120 points) from the appropriate subject / College. For example, if you are enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts, the fees will be based on selected courses from the College of Arts. If you decide to take elective courses from another College, these courses may be at a different rate therefore the total cost for 120 points may be slightly higher.

The easiest way to calculate your fees is through the Fees Estimator – you can add the papers you are wanting to enrol in and see what the cost will be, specific to you. 


  • Non-tuition fees will apply.
  • Additional course related costs, such as workshops and field trips may apply.
  • All fees are inclusive of NZ GST, or any equivalent overseas tax.
  • Your total tuition fees for each year are calculated by the cost of each individual course that makes up your programme of study therefore the prices below are indicative only.

Tuition fees are subject to change and are reviewed annually. The University reserves the right to change these published fees before enrolment to reflect any changes in Government or University Council Policy. See Enrolment and Fees Policies and Regulations for more information.
