Some programmes will also incur non-tuition fees, and additional costs.

Am I eligible for domestic tuition fees?

The following categories of international applicants are eligible for domestic tuition fees:

  • International students enrolling in a Doctor of Philosophy at a New Zealand university for the first time. This excludes named Doctorates, such as the Doctor of Education, Doctor of Business and Administration and Doctor of Clinical Psychology. The normal international student tuition fee applies for named Doctorates
  • Fullbright and Commonwealth Scholarship students
  • People with consular and diplomatic privileges
  • A child or step-child of a member of a diplomatic mission or consulting post who does not exceed 21 years of age at the date of commencement of the year in which they undertake tertiary education

What scholarships are available to me?

There are a number of scholarships open to international students. For more information see the scholarships page.

Am I able to pay my tuition fees per semester

If you are still overseas and coming to Massey for the first time, you will be required to pay one year’s tuition fees in advance. Students who are already in New Zealand or returning for their second year have the option of paying their tuition fees per semester. You will however still need to pay the compulsory non-tuition fees and insurance for the whole year. Please note that your visa will only be valid for the semester that has been paid for.

How much money do I need for living costs?

As well as tuition fees, you will need to pay for textbooks, non-tuition fees and your personal expenses.

At the airport, on arrival in New Zealand, you are required to pay a $35 International Visitor and Tourism Conservation Levy.

If you enter New Zealand on a student visa, Immigration NZ requires you to have NZ$15,000 available in addition to your course fees for each year you’ll be studying in New Zealand, plus an additional NZ$2,000 to cover a return ticket home. Living costs can vary considerably depending upon accommodation option, location and personal spending habits, so you may require more money than this.
