International tuition fees

09 November 2023

You will pay international tuition fees if you are a citizen or a residence class visa holder of a country other than New Zealand or Australia, except if you are on an approved reciprocal exchange programme (covered by a formal exchange agreement) or you are enrolled in a PhD while living in New Zealand.

Tuition Fee Bands

Tuition fees vary for each course, depending on the subject area and course level. Subjects that involve lab work usually have a higher tuition fee than lecture-based subjects, and postgraduate courses are normally more expensive than undergraduate courses. Tuition fees also reflect the point value of the course, so that a 30-point course fee will be twice the fee of a 15-point course in the same subject area and level. Each course is assigned to a Tuition Fee Band according to its subject area and whether it is at undergraduate level or postgraduate level, as outlined below.  

2024 International Tuition Fee Bands Band 1: Arts, Education (Teaching), Social Sciences. Undergraduate fee $31,600 per 120 points. Postgraduate fee $35,400 per 120 points.  Band 2: Business, Accountancy. Undergraduate fee $33,600 per 120 points. Postgraduate fee $35,000 per 120 points. Band 3: Fine Arts, Music, Law. Undergraduate fee $37,300 per 120 points. Postgraduate fee $40,600 per 120 points.  Band 4: Science (including non-bench and Health Sciences. Undergraduate fee $39,900 per 120 points. Postgraduate fee $42,200 per 120 points. Band 5: Engineering, Product Design. Undergraduate fee $48,000 per 120 points. Postgraduate fee $48,000 per 120 points. Band 7: Communication Disorders, Forestry. Undergraduate fee $43,500 per 120 points. Postgraduate fee $43,500 per 120 points.

Special Programme Fees

While most tuition fees are calculated by adding together the fees for each enrolled course (set according to the Tuition Fee Bands listed above), some qualifications instead have a Special Programme Fee. This means you pay a set amount for the full programme of study (that is, the whole qualification) at the beginning of your studies, regardless of which courses you choose or how long it takes you to complete the qualification. 

Tuition fees are reviewed annually and are subject to change so if you have not paid a Special Programme Fee (in full) and your qualification takes more than one year to complete, your following year's fees will be at a higher rate.

Non-tuition fees

All students are expected to pay the Student Services Levy (SSL) in addition to tuition fees. International students are also required to have insurance during their time at UC. 

 

Paying your fees

International students are required to provide evidence they have paid their tuition fees as part of their application for a student visa.  This means most international students pay the fee estimate that is shown on their Offer of Place in advance.  

When you complete your enrolment you will receive a Statement of Fees with your Enrolment Agreement that outlines your final tuition fees, the Student Services Levy (SSL), Insurance, and any other course-related costs. If the amount paid in advance is different from the final amount shown on the Statement of Fees when enrolment is completed, the difference is charged or refunded. 

Failure to accept your Enrolment Agreement by the deadline may also incur a Late Enrolment Fee that will show on your Statement of Fees. 

Fees disclaimer

UC reserves the right to change published fees before enrolment to reflect any changes in Government or University Council Policy. See Fees and Fines Regulations for more information or contact the Enrolments team.  

All prices are in NZ Dollars and are inclusive of NZ GST or any equivalent overseas tax unless otherwise stated.
