Are you eligible for free fees in 2018?
If you're thinking of starting your academic journey with Media Design School in February 2018, you may be eligible for fees free post-school training and education.
This means that if you finished school in 2017, or if you will finish school during 2018, you will qualify for a year of free tertiary education in 2018.
If you're not a recent school leaver, you may also qualify for fees-free education provided that you haven’t undertaken any tertiary education or training in the past.
How do I find out whether I'm eligible for fees-free studies?
You can check whether you are able to access fees-free education in 2018 by visiting www.feesfree.govt.nz.
Don't forget to look up your national student number (NSN) beforehand, as this will make it heaps easier to find out whether you're eligible. If you're not sure how to access your NSN number, simply call NZQA on 0800 697 296 (between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday) or contact them on the NZQA website.
Do I still need to enrol with Studylink?
Even if you are eligible for fees-free education, it's probably a good idea to consider whether or not you're going to apply for additional student support. Check out Studylink's website to find out about what the recent changes mean for you.
