Student Cost of Living

The cost of living greatly differs from city to city in New Zealand. New Zealand is known to be an expensive country but it’s also because they do have a low crime rate, incredible higher education centers, and provide a fantastic way of life.

There are private rental hostiles or accommodations that ask for rent per week. So, students would be looking at $200-$350 USD rent per week. New Zealand may be better experienced by international students if they choose to stay on campus at the university that they are studying at.

When it comes to groceries and utilities, a students should budget for around $1,600 – $2,500 USD per month. That is to live comfrotably enough to not worry about not being able to pay for a bill.

Cost of Tuition

When it comes to tuition there are great differences between the north and southern part of the country. Students can expect to spend between (for the Southern part of New Zealand) either NZ$15,000–$20,000. Or the north part of the country registers at about NZ$18,000 – $25,000.

Most international students that come to New Zealand to study without a scholarship will normally spend around $15,000 USD to $20,000 USD for the first undergraduate year.

Languages Spoken in New Zealand

Are there different languages spoken in New Zealand? Yes! The Māori language is native to the country. Along with New Zealand Sign Language. English is also considered as one of the three main languages; however, the country will have different slang than the United States.

International students should either learn Māori or the native country sign language because this would greatly increase the student’s chances of securing a scholarship.

Other languages commonly heard in the country are Samoan, German, Spanish, Yue, Hinidi, French, and Tagalog.
