All fees are inclusive of New Zealand Goods and Services Tax (GST).  All fees outlined on the Offer of Place must be paid prior to the commencement of the programme.

No application fees for completing students

SIT waives its application fee (NZ$150) for all students completing qualifications. 

Insurance included

Medical and travel insurance are compulsory for international students studying in New Zealand. Insurance for English will be arranged for NZ$300 for 26 weeks of study. SIT automatically organises insurance for mainstream students through the resource fee, so that is one less thing you have to worry about!

Scholarships

You may be able to apply for SIT’s 26 Week English Scholarships or the John Wright Academic and Sports Scholarships
