To find out whether or not you're eligible, go to the Fees-Free website and enter your details:
If you are new to tertiary study and your eligibility is confirmed by the online tool, the Government will let us know, and you won’t be charged tuition fees or student services fees in the year that you become eligible.
If the online tool indicates that your eligibility is unconfirmed, you will need to complete a statutory declaration before the University of Otago can treat you as a fees-free student. This will involve getting papers witnessed, so you may need the assistance of your family or whānau.
We encourage you to complete the assessment as soon as possible.
