Q: “What’s the difference between “Zero Fees” and “Fees Free”?”

All of our Level 1 & 2 programmes are zero-fees for New Zealanders of all ages.

This is possible because we are a Private Training Establishment (PTE), and apply for funding from the New Zealand government in order to provide our programmes.

The NZ government does not provide funding for international students, so we are unable to provide zero fees programmes to international students.

“Fees Free” is the name of a government initiative which provides the first year of your tertiary level education for free.

This doesn’t have an impact on our Level 1 & 2 programmes because those programmes are “zero fees” anyway. But it does have an impact on our Level 3, 5 & 6 programmes (we don’t provide any Level 4 programmes at this time).

To be eligible for “Fees Free” for our Level 3, 4 & 5 programmes:

  • You must be a New Zealand citizen or you have lived in New Zealand for at least 3 years while holding a residence class visa
  • You must be able to say “Yes” to 1 of the following scenarios:
    • Are you a New Zealander who has recently finished school?
    • Have you done less than half a year of education or training (including tertiary study in any other country)?
  • See the full eligibility criteria at FeesFree.govt.nz/faqs.
