The countdown to apply for January 2019 courses has started.

If you want to be interviewed in 2018, you must apply by 12 PM on Monday, 17 December 2018. You should therefore be able to attend your interview so you can complete your enrolment by the time we close for the Christmas / New Year break on Thursday, 20 December 2018. We are interviewing for January 2019 courses only at this stage.

Places are limited, so you should apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment or missing out.

The courses we are offering in January 2019 are:

  • New Zealand Certificate in Beauty Therapy
  • New Zealand Certificate in Nail Technology

If there are any places left after 20 December 2018, we will still be taking applications, but interviews will not take place until the week of Monday, 14 January 2019. Since we will still be closed for the break at that time, we will schedule interviews all on one day.

If you would like a course information pack, you can download it from our Course Information Pack page.

You can download the application form by itself from our Downloads page too.

If you have any questions, by all means, please contact us and we will help you as best as we can.

You and Fees Free at NaSA in 2019

feesfree.govt.nz
This story is no longer valid.

Fees Free is a Government scheme that started in 2018.

If 2019 is your first year studying tertiary education, you may be eligible for Fees Free from the Government. This means up to $12,000 GST inclusive can be paid for your course fees and some required course related costs that you buy through the school.

What are you eligible for?

An eligible student who has never accessed the Fees Free scheme before and wants to study one of our programmes can be eligible for the following:

Course2019 Course Cost
(Pays up to)
2019 Extra Expenses
(Pays up to)
New Zealand Certificate in Nail Technology$7,000Approximately $1,750
Course cost includes most products used on campus during course hoursExtra expenses paid for by Fees Free can include your:

  • ID badge
  • Public Trust Account Fee (where required)
  • Compulsory textbooks
  • Nail technology practice hand
  • Acrylic nail technology kit
  • Gel nail technology kit
New Zealand Certificate in Beauty Therapy$10,000Approximately $455
Course cost includes most products used on campus during course hoursExtra expenses paid for by Fees Free can include your:

  • ID badge
  • Public Trust Account Fee (where required)
  • Compulsory textbooks
  • First headband
  • First sponges

How do you know if you are eligible for Fees Free?

To determine if you are eligible for Fees Free, you can visit www.feesfree.govt.nz with your National Student Number / NZQA number. You’ll need to select 2019 as the year of study and that you are doing provider based training. This should tell you yes, no, or maybe. If it says:

  • Yes: you won’t need to do anything more.
  • No: you will need to apply for a Student Loan with StudyLink at www.studylink.govt.nz
  • Maybe: you will need to fill in the declaration TEC give you and return it to them.

Please note that Fees Free does not cover anything that the student needs to purchase outside the school (uniform top or linen kit, for example) or optional items (international examinations, for example).

If you’ve accessed under 1 equivalent full time status (EFTS) and $12,000 GST inclusive in 2018, you may be eligible for further Fees Free up to the amount you did not spend or your remaining EFTS, whichever comes first. You will need to arrange a Student Loan to pay the difference before the course starts.

If you have any further questions or want to apply, please contact our Student Liaison Officer, Paula McFarlane, and she will help you as best as she can.

Streamlining Enrolment Requirements

The introduction of the Fees Free scheme in 2018 has created a slight issue with our enrolment requirements, specifically when it comes to a deposit on a programme of study. In short, Fees Free students no longer need a Public Trust account if they are under the $12,000 GST inclusive cap — and the majority of our eligible students are — while students who are not Fees Free do need to continue with the Public Trust account.

To even the playing field and ensure consistency among all people enrolling with us, we have dropped the deposit requirement and shifted it to a $100 non-refundable enrolment administration fee.

This makes this enrolment requirement easier and more straight-forward for our students to understand, no matter how they are funded or what type of student they are (domestic, international, new, returning, et cetera), and ensures we can give the correct advice and level of service to all students.

In 2018, the non-refundable enrolment administration fee is $100 for all enrolees in all programmes. This is the same exact price the deposit was when it was in place.

The non-refundable enrolment administration fee requirement is applicable for all further programmes starting in 2018 onwards, and our documentation is being updated to reflect this.

To learn more about the enrolment administration fee, please see the Enrolment Administration Fee section on our Enrolment page.

Please contact us if there are any questions about this change.

The New Zealand Government has announced fees free study for certain students studying in 2018.

While the details of this policy are still being worked out, demand has been high for our programmes. If you want to start your study in January 2018, we urge you to submit your application before 16 December 2017 to avoid missing out.

We will be updating our Web site with more information as it becomes available from the Government and Government agencies.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
