Fees and money matters
There are a variety of options available to help you fund your university study. Student loans and allowances are available through StudyLink, and there are a number of scholarships, awards and grants on offer to help you.
The University of Auckland has a wide range of scholarships and awards available to students at all levels of study.
For a full list of undergraduate scholarships and awards, and information on TeachNZ scholarships, visit Scholarships and awards.
Student allowances assist New Zealand students in financial need who are enrolled in a recognised full-time course of study. International students, and students who have had Permanent Residency status for less than two years, are not eligible. A student allowance is a grant and does not need to be repaid, unlike a student loan. Other income may affect your eligibility for an allowance.
To be eligible for a student loan you must be a New Zealand citizen or have been granted Permanent Resident status.
You must be studying full-time for a minimum of 12 weeks, or part-time for a full year, at an approved tertiary institution.
You may apply for tuition fees, course-related costs (for example, books, stationery and travel) and living costs (living costs are not available to part-time students). Applications for loans should be made at least one month before study begins.
Loans need to be repaid and may accrue interest. The Inland Revenue Department provides more information about Student Loan interest.
StudyLink provides more information and online application forms for loans and allowances. Students are advised to apply early.
Visit their website or call 0800 88 99 00 for more information.
For information and advice regarding fees, loans or allowances contact the Student Information Centre.
