Prices: High School Study Abroad New Zealand

All listed prices are in New Zealand Dollars (NZD). Link to Currency Converter

Not all state schools in New Zealand apply the same prices. Also, some state schools offer boarding accommodation, at a comparable cost to living with a host family.

As explained in our eight step process, HSA will help you to find a suitable school, and to complete and submit your placement application (Steps 1-4).

The school requires payment only when the placement offer is accepted (see Steps 5 and 6, Confirming and Enrolling). At the same time, Highschool Australia will issue an invoice for its services. (This is a one-off lump-sum fee of $2100 NZD and is NOT included in the price list below).
