International Undergraduate Fees

Fees for international students studying undergraduate qualifications.

Indicative Tuition Fees

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.

Additional Costs

In addition to tuition fees, students are charged a Student Services Levy (SSL) that is used to benefit students through a range of services on and off campus. If you are studying offshore or extramurally, you will be charged SSL at a reduced rate of 20%. If you are studying on-campus as an international student, you must also pay insurance for the duration of your study. 

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.
