I’ve done tertiary study overseas. Am I still eligible?

It’s unlikely you’ll be eligible for fees-free if you have an overseas qualification.

However, if you have studied overseas and that study was equivalent to less than 60 credits (half a year of equivalent full-time tertiary education, 0.5 EFTS) at level 3 or above on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework, you may be eligible. This excludes any tertiary education studied while enrolled in a school.

You still need to meet the other eligibility requirements for fees-free.

If you have questions about your eligibility including prior study or training, please contact us at [email protected] or 0800 687 775.
