3. Prepay your tuition fees

22 November 2023

International students must have a valid student visa to study in NZ and need to provide evidence they have prepaid their tuition fees as part of a visa application. 


Pre-pay your tuition fees

You will need to include evidence you have pre-paid your fees with your visa application. See Immigration New Zealand for more information. The amount you need to pre-pay will be shown as a fees estimate on your Offer of Place. 

Your Offer of Place can be found in your Document Library in myUC (top right-hand corner). 


Details of different payment methods are listed on our How to pay your fees page.  Note that you will not be able to pre-pay your fees estimate in myUC so must choose an alternative method of payment.


TIP: If the amount you pre-pay is different from your final fees total, you will be charged or refunded the difference later. 

If you are unable to complete your enrolment by the deadline to add or withdraw courses (eg if  your visa application is declined), you can request a full refund of your tuition fees. After this date, you will not normally be eligible for a refund.

Contact Student Finance for more information on the refund process.


If you have a valid visa to study at UC you will not need to pre-pay your fees, and can instead pay your fees when you receive your Enrolment Agreement.
