International Undergraduate fees

Relevant qualifications

You need to pay undergraduate tuition fees if you plan on studying towards any of the following qualifications at UC. 

Fees Estimate

Courses are the building blocks for each 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 courses which you are enrolled in. The cost of an individual course can be found on the course page. Each course is worth a certain number of points and it is these points which 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 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.

 NOTE:

  • Additional course related costs, such as workshops and field trips may apply.
  • Non-tuition fees will apply
  • There may also be additional costs such as:
    • Insurance (can be bought through UC or through an approved provider prior to arriving in NZ)
    • Student Visa (if you are a new student, this will need to be organised prior to arriving in NZ)
  • 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. If you are taking courses as part of your qualification in the following academic year, you may be subject to a price increase for those courses.
