Institutions in New Zealand are allowed to set their own tuition fees, meaning that what you pay will be different depending on which institution you wish you to attend. International students can expect to pay between $22,000 and $32,000 for a bachelor’s degree, and between $26,000 and $37,000 for a postgraduate course. However, some courses have higher fees, such as medicine, engineering and veterinary science. All PhD students pay the same, which is $6,500 to $9,000 per year. For information about the cost of your specific course, contact your institution.
