Student Welfare

Fee Protection

NSIA uses the Public Trust for fee protection. This ensures that your fees are available in the unlikely event of insolvency, regulatory closure or withdrawal of accreditation of the school. This is an NZQA approved method of fee protection. For more information visit the trust website.

Student Loans and Allowances

New Zealand citizens and eligible permanent residents are able to apply for student loans and allowances to study at NSIA. Assistance with applications for a student loan and allowance through StudyLink is available through the NSIA Domestic Recruitment Team.

Complete your application as soon as you can to avoid any delays in finance. You should allow for 4-10 weeks processing time. You must provide verified documentation including a New Zealand passport/birth certificate, citizenship paper or evidence of permanent residency, bank account details and IRD number.

If you are a permanent resident it is important that you contact StudyLink directly to establish your eligibility to access loans and allowances. Your Verification of Study will be sent electronically to StudyLink at their request, based on your completed application.
