The majority of PhD candidates, both international and domestic, pay domestic fees for PhD study. However if you are an international student, you must reside in New Zealand during your studies to qualify for domestic fees. Up to 12 months' overseas research leave may be approved, which should be requested on a Request for Change of Research Details form, accessible from the Graduate Research School Forms, Policies and Guidelines page:
