Financial advantage of studying in New Zealand

Cost is understandably one of the most important factors to consider when you are thinking about studying overseas. In New Zealand, most bachelor degrees can be completed in just three years, which helps make studying here more affordable than in the United States.

U.S. Federal Aid can be used to finance your studies at Massey University.

Complete your degree faster

New Zealand degrees are focused on core classes and undergraduate students do not have to take a year of general education classes. This means you can graduate more quickly in New Zealand than in the United States. You will also spend less on tuition, fees, accommodation, meals, supplies, and living expenses due to finishing your degree sooner.

Average Bachelor’s degree is 3 years
Average Master's degree is 1.5 years

Favourable exchange rate reduces costs

The strong exchange rate between the U.S. dollar and New Zealand dollar makes studying and living here even more affordable, particularly for students who would pay out-of-state fees to a U.S institution.

According to College Tuition Compare, the 2020 average costs of attendance, which includes tuition, fees, books, supplies, room and board, and other living expenses, at U.S. institutions offering Bachelor’s degrees are:

U.S. students paying in-state tuition
US $24,000 per year
US $96,000 for four years
