New Zealand born Australian students
UC offers a wide range of quality programmes, a vibrant campus environment, accommodation options and an incredible student lifestyle at a very competitive price.
It was recently announced that NZ born students who have been in Australia less than 10 years will no longer get subsidised tertiary support from the Australian central Government. Those students will be charged the domestic full-fee rate.
The ending of subsidies means that on an annual basis they will have an increase in tuition fees (on average) of $17,000 ($7,000 to $24,000: Radio New Zealand 3/5/17).
NZ born students will have access to the Australian student loan system however a 25% loan fee will also be applied. The announced changes will impact from January 2018.
However, if you chose to study in New Zealand, you will be under the same conditions as New Zealand citizens. This means that you will pay domestic tuition fees and can apply for government student loans.
