Due to funding the New Zealand Government provides for the education of its citizens, we are able to offer the diploma at a subsidized rate to New Zealanders and Australian Residents. However this funding is limited, and only a few slots are available per course.

To secure your position on the course a deposit of $500 is required to be paid upon notification of your acceptance. Full payment of your tuition fees must be paid into the school’s nominated trust account one month prior to the commencement of the course for domestic students, and 3 months prior to commencement for international students. Fees held in the Independent Trust Account are subject to the student protection policy as required by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA).

No further discount is given to higher rated students, as the training is still specific to students’ individual needs.


Domestic students include New Zealand and Australian citizens. Government student loan is available to fund the course for New Zealand students and StudyLink funding is available during training.
