No fees for 2018 Foundation Certificate Education

If you want to study our foundation certificate in 2018 and you are not eligible for the Government’s one year fees-free for your first year of tertiary study, we’ll pay your fees for you!*

We want to support aspiring teachers, social workers and sport, health and physical education professionals who have potential to become degree-level qualified. If you are successful in your application for the Faculty of Education and Social Work Foundation Certificate Education, you will study for free in 2018.

This high-quality preparation programme will set you up for successful bachelors degree study starting the following year and help you meet the academic entry requirements if needed.

Start 26 February 2018. Apply online today.


*Please note:

1.    This foundation programme is offered at tertiary level and will be counted as your one year of fees-free study within the Government’s new fees-free policy if you meet the eligibility criteria. It is not possible to defer your 2018 fees-free for the first year of a degree in the future.

2.    If you are not eligible for the Government’s fees-free policy, the University of Auckland will pay your fees for this programme in 2018.
