One of the advantages of studying in New Zealand is value for your money. Living expenses and tuition costs are comparatively affordable.
Tuition fees vary depending on the type of course (arts or science; undergraduate/bachelor or postgraduate) and the duration of the course.
Like other parts of the world, the cost of rental accommodation varies greatly depending on where you study and the style of accommodation. As a guide, the national median rental in May 2013 was NZ$360 per week for a three-bedroom home. In central parts of Auckland and Wellington, the median was nearer NZ$460 a week with more desirable homes up to NZ$660 per week.
