Payment Options

You can choose from three payment options:

  1. Student Loans
    The PLSC is approved for student loans and allowances. For more information about student loans go to www.studylink.govt.nz. The course is classified as full time for the purposes of student loans and is 0.4 EFTS.

    Note: International students are not eligible for student loans.

  2. Invoices
    Is your employer paying your course fees? If so, we’ll send them an invoice directly.

  3. Self-funded
    If you’re not eligible for a student loan, you’ll need to pay your fees in full before you start (via credit card or direct payment).


You may transfer your enrolment to another course, without any further fee, up to 14 days after the commencement date of the course. Any transfer made after 28 days will incur a transfer fee of $200 (including GST). Subsequent transfers incur a $200 transfer fee.


You may withdraw your enrolment from the course subject to the following conditions:

  • If you withdraw 14 days or more before the commencement date, you will receive a full refund of the course fee.
  • If you withdraw 7 days or less after the commencement date, you will receive a refund of the course fee, less 10%.

If you withdraw more than 7 days after the commencement date of the course, you will not be entitled to any refund. Any refund will be at the College’s discretion and will depend on individual circumstances.

Student Fees and Protection

Student fees are protected under a Student Fee Protection Trust, which has the Public Trust as trustee. The Trust requires you to sign an acknowledgment form showing that you understand what happens to any refund. This form is sent upon acceptance into the Professional Legal Studies Course. The College’s Student Fee Protection Trust information is available at www.publictrust.co.nz
