International Undergraduate Fees
You will pay undergraduate tuition fees for the following qualifications at UC:
- Bachelor's degrees
- Honours degrees
- Undergraduate certificates and diplomas
- Graduate certificates and diplomas
The table below indicates the tuition fees you might pay for the first year of each undergraduate qualification - normally 120 points unless stated otherwise. The actual tuition fees you pay will depend on which courses you choose to take towards your qualification and may be slightly more or less than the indicative fee listed below.
If you pre-pay your tuition fees and the amount you pre-pay is different from your final fees total (as shown on your Enrolment Agreement), you will be charged or refunded the difference during your Enrolment in Person session if you are studying on-campus, or when you finalise your enrolment if you are offshore.
In addition to your tuition fees you will also pay non-tuition fees. If you are studying on-campus as an international student, you will also pay for Insurance and a Student Visa Application Fee (if applying through UC).
Offshore Study and GST
If you are living and studying outside of New Zealand, your fees will be exclusive of NZ GST. The University of Canterbury reserves the right to charge any additional taxes payable in NZ or in the country of study if required by any relevant legislation.
