Student Loans and Allowances

If you have been living in New Zealand for at least three years and have held a residence class visa for three years, you can apply for student loans and allowances from the Ministry of Social Development to cover your tuition fees, programme-related costs and living expenses.

A student loan can help finance your study, but you must pay it back.

If you are studying full-time, you can get:

  • compulsory tuition fees
  • programme-related costs
  • living costs.

A student allowance is a weekly payment that you do not have to pay back.
