SIT can confirm that eligible students, in addition to getting their first year of tertiary studies for free, will also be able to apply for free shared accommodation at SIT’s apartments in Invercargill for the academic year (40 weeks’ maximum). Alternatively, eligible students at our Invercargill campus can opt to receive a $100/week accommodation bursary regardless of whether they live at home or in rental accommodation.

Again, this will be offered for the academic year, for up to 40 weeks’ maximum.
