School Fees

WHS Logo

Information on current fees and costs for international students studying at Wakatipu High School are below, including accommodation, course fees and uniform. Please note that the Ministry of Education requires international students to have approved health insurance (Our team can assist in organising this).

The tuition fees detailed provide an estimate of costs for 2018 and 2019 and are subject to change. The tuition fees listed may not represent the actual cost of a programme of study.

Tuition fees are assessed each year. The fees are applicable only to the calendar year (January-December) in which the course is commenced. If a course of study extends for one or more semesters in a subsequent calendar year(s), the students will be required to pay the tuition fee applicable for that calendar year(s). An incremental fee may be prescribed for short-term stays.

Please refer to the International Student Tuition Contractual Agreement for full terms and conditions.
