Study Link Update

Fees-free

Fees-free is managed by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC). Students can check if they can get fees-free study at www.feesfree.govt.nz.

Students who are New Zealanders and will finish school in 2018, may qualify for a year of fees-free tertiary study or two years of industry training in 2019.

Find out more about the eligibility for fees-free.

How to check if a student can get fees-free study

Students can go to www.feesfree.govt.nz and enter their National Student Number (NSN) to check. The majority of secondary school students should receive a 'yes - you are eligible' response.

If a student receives a 'we are not sure' response, they may need to provide further information to TEC. The frees-free website will let them know what they need to do.

How does a student apply for fees-free?

Students don't need to apply for fees-free.

Once the student has enrolled, TEC will check the student's details and if eligible, will pay the fees directly to the tertiary education provider or industry training organisation. They can pay up to a maximum of $12,000 incl GST per year.

Does a student still need to apply to StudyLink?

If a student only needs their fees paid they won't need to apply for a Student Loan unless their fees are over $12,000.

If a student wants to apply for a Student Allowance or the living and course-related costs parts of a Student Loan they'll still need to apply to StudyLink.

If you've got any further questions you can check out the fees-free website or call the fees-free helpline on 0800 687 775.
