If you change your mind before coming to New Zealand , your full fees are refunded, less a $500 administration fee. If you wish to withdraw after coming to New Zealand , the following conditions apply:

a) No refunds will be made to students who return home for any reason other than the student’s serious illness, or serious illness of a close family member. Medical evidence must be provided.

b) No refunds will be made to students who acquire Permanent Residence, or whose parent acquires a Work or Long- Term Business Visa after having enrolled here. The only exceptions are when the intention to apply is declared at the time of application, or for annual contract renewal.

c) Refunds may be made to students who transfer to another school in New Zealand before Term 3. This will be done on a case-bycase basis, after consultation with parents.

d) No refunds will be made to students who are asked to leave the College because of misbehaviour or poor attendance.

e) In all cases of refunds, New Zealand law compels the College to cover costs already incurred.



Howick College is required to ensure that all students’ fees are protected in the event that the school is unable to continue to offer tuition.

The Board of Trustees guarantees that students’ fees are separately coded, will not be spent in advance and will only be spent after the tuition has been received, thereby ensuring availability for refund.
