Fees-free is a funding scheme provided by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC), which can allow you to get one year of tertiary study or two year’s training up to the value of $12,000.

All NZSE College Certificate, Diploma and Degree programmes from level 3 to level 7 may be eligible for Fees-free study. You are only eligible for Fees-Free if you haven’t previously undertaken more than 60 credits (half a year of equivalent full-time tertiary education, 0.5 EFTS) at Level 3 or above on the NZQF – New Zealand Qualifications Framework. To check if you meet the requirements, visit the New Zealand Government’s Fees-Free website and enter your National Student Number (NSN). If you do not have an NSN, contact your Course Advisor.


We offer a range of Zero-Fees programmes and options which can vary and change. Prospective students aged who are between 16 years old and above have an opportunity to participate in a range of courses free of charge.

It doesn't stop there, enjoy perks and benefits such as travel allowances to and from our campuses, by either using public or private transport. *Terms and conditions may apply so get in touch with us to discuss your options.
