How to pay

Receiving an Offer of Place does not guarantee you a place.  To accept an offer of place, applicants must:

  • Sign the invoice and acceptance form
  • Complete the Accommodation form
  • Make full payment of tuition and insurance fees.

Please note some programmes have a limited intake, so do not delay making payment.  Also, international students are only eligible to pay by instalments under exceptional circumstances.

Prior to making payment please refer to Immigration New Zealand (INZ) on the visa application process,, as some payment of fees are only required once a student has received an approval in principle from INZ.

This policy sets out the conditions under which an international student will be considered for a refund of tuition fees after the cancellation of a course or following withdrawal.

This policy applies only to full fee-paying international students.  International student fees for courses managed by way of a contract (such as NZ Aid and ITO contracts) are not covered by this policy unless otherwise stated in the contract. There is no automatic right to a refund of fees if an international student changes his/her mind about studying at MIT.
