Education for Australians in New Zealand

Australian citizens and permanent residents are classified as domestic students in New Zealand and do not require student visas.

The Department of Work and Income provides subsidies to low income families for early childhood education and before/after school and holiday programmes.

At tertiary institutions, Australians pay local fees, but are only eligible for tertiary student allowances after two years residence. They are able to apply for tertiary student loans.
