You need to pay postgraduate tuition fees and other fees related to student services and facilities (except distance-learning and exchange students) if you are studying any of the following qualifications at AUT. There may also be other fees and charges that you will need to pay.
For semester one, invoicing usually commences in December. If you are paying by student loan, we suggest you apply for it now as applications can take time. To apply for a student loan visit www.studylink.govt.nz.
The tuition fee for a year of full-time study varies depending on your course of study and the combination of papers you study within your qualification. Your exact fees will be calculated at the time of invoicing.
The following provides an estimate for the range of costs associated with fulltime study, based on the paper selection of previous student enrolments within each qualification. This estimate should not be considered a maximum or minimum fee for each programme as exact fees will depend on your specific paper selection.
The typical range in fees for 2018 is expected to be:
Some courses exceed this range, including:
Where a Postgraduate Diploma (120 points) is offered, the fees are same as 120 points of the Professional Masters.
Where a Postgraduate Certificate (60 points) is offered, the fee is a proportion of the professional Masters fees shown.
Master of Philosophy and Doctor of Philosophy fees are less than the range shown above —$6,633 per 120 points
Note: Part-time students pay a proportion of the full-time fee
2018 Compulsory Student Services Fee - $627.10 for 120 points or $5.23 per academic point (GST incl)
2018 Building Levy - $69.60 for 120 points or $0.58 per academic point (GST incl)
Distance learning students and exchange students are exempt from these fees because they don't use the campus services and facilities. Distance learning means that the teaching department has confirmed that no portion of the paper is taught on campus.
Other students who wish to apply for an exemption to the fee may apply in writing to the Group Director Student Services and Administration at firstname.lastname@example.org
Some individual papers may also charge additional fees for materials, equipment or field trips where applicable. If there is a charge it will be shown on your invoice. Please check with your faculty/department if there are additional fees for your programme of study.
