    Terms and Conditions

    The following terms and conditions relating to a grant offered by Te P?kenga – New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology (Te P?kenga). By submitting an application to study, the International Learner (?konga n? t?w?hi) agrees to be bound by these terms and conditions.

    1 The grant is known as the International Learner (?konga n? t?w?hi) Study Grant (“the grant”).
    2 The purpose of the grant is to support ?konga n? t?w?hi commencing full-time study at Te P?kenga in semester 1 and 2 2024 intakes.
    3 Te P?kenga shall award one grant per successful applicant, the value of which is applied based on the payment of fees for the qualification.
    4 For the removal of doubt:
    for multi-year programmes below the postgraduate level, the grant is applied to the fees paid for the first year of study.
    5 Where an ?konga n? t?w?hi fails a course/s and needs to repeat the course/s, no form of study grant, pro-rated or otherwise, will be applied to the additional course/s. Fees will be levied at the full tuition fee applicable for the course/s at the time of enrolment.
    6 Where an ?konga n? t?w?hi is required to put their study on hold after completing one semester or more, the grant continues to be valid for the further study paid for unless a refund or permanent withdrawal is actioned.


    Applicants for the grant must:

    1. Be an ?konga n? t?w?hi (as defined by section 10(1) of the Education and Training Act 2020);
    2. Be a new ?konga n? t?w?hi at Te P?kenga (i.e., not re-enrolling at Te P?kenga) applying for full-time study in semesters 1 and 2 2024 (existing students are covered by fees grandparenting arrangements);

    6. Be enrolling in semesters 1 and 2 of 2024, if a student defers to 2025 for any reason, the study grant is withdrawn.

    ?konga n? t?w?hi are not eligible and cannot receive the grant if:
    1. 1 they are in recipient of another grant, scholarship, award, or other concessions from Te P?kenga or external bodies;
    2. they are likely to be applying for Recognition of Prior Learning or Cross Crediting to reduce the number of credits that are needed for the given qualification;
    3. have permanently moved to studying part-time (including commencing full-time study and then reducing this to part-time). In such a situation, the ?konga n? t?w?hi waives their right to the grant and will be liable for the payment of remaining fees for the semesters enrolled as part-time. Any withdrawal will be subject to individual Te P?kenga business divisions’ admission, enrolment, fees, and refund policies and procedures.
    4. they are studying on a pathway offer where the qualification listed in Table 1 is commenced in 2024 or later.

    Application process

    2. Te P?kenga reserves the right to request from any applicant any additional information that it may consider necessary for determining eligibility for the grant.
    3. Te P?kenga business divisions have complete discretion in assessing the application of the grant.
    4. The Te P?kenga decision is final and binding, and no further correspondence will be entered into once a decision has been made
