UCOL is dedicated to supporting international students seeking or undertaking study with us. The following policies and procedures guide the way UCOL deals with international student applications and the pastoral care of international students.
International students pay different fees to New Zealand citizens. The fees can be found on the programme (qualification) page. The fees displayed are for one year of study. Payment is required in full before teaching starts.
UCOL has a Recognition of Prior Learning Procedure. Contact us to find out more.
For unresolved complaints related to contractual or financial issues, NZQA will direct the student to iStudent Complaints to be resolved under the International Student Contract Dispute Resolution Scheme (DRS). The DRS is a New Zealand Government scheme and is available to current, former, and prospective international students.
