Payment by student loan
A student loan can help you pay for your tertiary education but it is a loan that you must pay back. You can get a student loan to cover compulsory fees, course-related costs and living costs.
You need to apply for your student loan before the semester/term starts. Otherwise you may incur late payment fees that are not covered by your student loan.
To be eligible to apply for a student loan, you need to be a New Zealand citizen, permanent resident, refugee or protected person (under the Immigration Act 2009).
In addition, the programme you are studying must be:
- Approved by the Tertiary Education Commission; and
- Full time and 32 weeks or longer (or limited full-full time with approval); or
- Part-time - Minimum enrolment (12 weeks).
If you are an international student, it is important you only pay your tuition fees for Unitec Institute of Technology after receiving your Offer of Place (or after receiving your Approval in Principle Visa where applicable). Payment of your tuition fees indicates your acceptance of the offer into the programme of study.
The tuition fee payable is indicated on your Offer of Place letter and instructions on how to pay your tuition and other fees are also included.
Your Offer of Place will detail your tuition fees, insurance and any other fee in New Zealand dollars per academic year.
Both new and returning students need to pay as soon as possible to allow time to apply for your new or returning student visa. Once Unitec has received your payment, the official Unitec Fee Payment receipt to you or your agent and Immigration New Zealand.
See our Admission, Enrolment and Fees Policy for detailed information on payment dates.
Please contact the International Office if you have any queries.
