Tuition Fee Structure

A student must pay tuition fees on the basis of each and every course they enrol in, except when enrolling in a Special Fees Programme where an overall fee is levied. Courses are assigned to fee bands by subject area as shown in the tables below. All international students must pay tuition fees at the international rate except those on an approved reciprocal exchange programme (covered by a formal exchange agreement) and those enrolled as a PhD student and residing in Aotearoa New Zealand. 

Banded Fees

Courses are assigned to fee bands based on subject area unless they are part of a Special (Set) Fees Programme. Banded fees are used for domestic and international undergraduate students, and domestic postgraduate (research and taught) students. Postgraduate courses for international students generally have special set fees instead of banded fees. 

Tuition fees for domestic postgraduate research (thesis-based) students are based on one academic year of study (120 points) so the prices listed below are for one year of study (120 points), not a total set programme fee. This means if your qualification takes longer than one year, you will be invoiced for each additional quarter, and your tuition fees will be subject to price increases in subsequent year(s).

All fees listed are inclusive of NZ GST, or any equivalent overseas tax, unless otherwise stated. In addition to tuition fees, there are also non-tuition fees

Special Programme Fees

International students

All postgraduate qualifications have a Set Programme Fee for international students except for 240 point Master's taught over 24 months.

This means you pay a set amount for tuition fees for the programme, regardless of which courses you choose or how long it takes you to complete the qualification. The Set Programme Fee must be paid in full before commencement of study.

A list of Set Programme Fees for international students is available on the International Postgraduate Fees page.
