Complete a hairdressing, barbering, or makeup qualification with the assistance of Fees Free. You can get one year of tertiary study or two years’ training up to the value of $12,000 fees-free. Fees Free covers your course fees but does not cover course-related costs or living costs.
You may qualify if the below applies to you:
a New Zealander or ordinarily resident in New Zealand;
a recent secondary school leaver;
or not a recent secondary school leaver but have undertaken less than half a year of tertiary study or training.
If you’re eligible for Fee Free, you will still need to apply for a Student Loan via StudyLink if you want to borrow course-related costs or living costs.
Please refer to the below resources for more help on Student Loans and Fees Free.
