Fees free. What is it?2021-08-03T20:58:06+12:00

Fees Free is targeted at first-time learners. You may be able to get one year’s study or two years’ training fees-free with NCNZ.

How do I find out if I am eligible?2021-08-03T20:49:24+12:00

We can help you find out if you are eligible for fees free study in 2018. Just call us on 0800 759 0218 or email us.

If you know your NSN number you can also check if you are eligible on the www.feesfree.govt.nz website.
You will need to meet these requirements for fees-free study, you must:

  1. be a New Zealand citizen, or be an Australian or New Zealand resident who has lived here for at least three years; and
  2. not be enrolled in school when your qualification starts, and
  3. not have undertaken previous study or training of more than 60 credits, except while you were at school.
How can I get my National Student Number (NSN)?2017-12-08T14:41:19+13:00

If you are currently at school, you can ask your school for your NSN.

Otherwise talk to the Student Service Team at NCNZ and we can help you.

You can also contact the NZQA on 0800 697 296 (between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday) or by email through the NZQA website.

Will I be eligible for fees-free if I study part time?2021-08-03T20:51:14+12:00

Yes. You can study full-time or part-time and be eligible for fees-free, providing you meet all of the other eligibility criteria.

What do I do if I find I am eligible for fees-free, but I have already taken out a student loan for my fees?2021-08-03T20:55:46+12:00

StudyLink advises that you should do the following:

  • Log in to your MyStudyLink account and change the ‘Pay fees’ field in your loan application to ‘No’ (NB don’t cancel your loan application completely if you will still need other support from the loan like the living costs and course-related costs)
  • If you were only taking out a loan to pay your fees, and your fees are less than or equal to $12,000, you may choose to cancel your loan application. Call StudyLink on 0800 88 99 00 to talk about cancelling your application.
Do I still need to apply to StudyLink to access fees-free study?2017-12-08T14:50:28+13:00

No, the fees will be paid directly to NCNZ by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC). But if you wish to apply for a student allowance or the two non-fees parts of a student loan (living costs and course-related costs) for 2018, then you will still need to apply to StudyLink.

It is your choice whether to apply for a student allowance or loan living costs and course-related costs, but if you plan to do so StudyLink encourages prospective students to apply by 16 December 2017, and to provide supporting documents promptly (you can apply online). This will ensure that applications can be assessed in time for the start of the 2018 academic year.

What do I do if I’m not sure how much previous study I’ve done?2017-12-08T14:53:30+13:00

If you need help confirming your previous study, just call or email Student Service Team at NCNZ and we can help you. Call us on 0800 759 0218 or email us.
