Public Trust
As part of the enrolment process you will receive a Public Trust Fee Protection Contract. By law, all education providers are required to have some form of protection for fees paid in advance. NCNZ has chosen Public Trust – Fee Protect.

Fee Protect is a student fee trust account which ensures you receive a refund on student fees, which are held in trust, if in the unlikely event NCNZ is unable to complete your programme of study. This could be because of closure, insolvency, loss of NZQA accreditation or programme within the stated timeframe.
You are required to initial, sign and return the Public Trust Contract to NCNZ within seven days of its receipt.

Study Link
Student loans and allowances are administered by StudyLink, and are available for all programmes of study. As a general rule, if you are studying part-time then your fees can be paid by student loan. However, you may not be eligible for a student allowance or to borrow course related costs to cover additional study expenses such as workshops. If you are studying full-time then your course fees can be paid by a student loan, and it is also likely you will be eligible for course related costs and living costs or a student allowance.

To find out whether you are eligible for a student loan or allowance, contact Study Link on free phone 0800 889 900 or apply online at StudyLink .
