Notes:

This cost estimate was prepared April 3, 2017 for the Fall 2017 semester. These costs are approximations and are subject to change.

Mandatory Health Insurance: is required for all international students by the New Zealand Government. Penn pays this fee directly to the University of Otago, and will add this fee to your Penn bill once received. 

Lodging: The cost listed above is for a single student sharing a fully-furnished University Flat for one semester as outlined on the University of Otago cost of living website. This cost includes electricity and internet.

Personal Expenses, and Books and Supplies: based on the cost of living website provided by the University of Otago. Please note that local travel costs are negligible as most accommodation, shopping and services are within walking distance of the campus.

Visa: The cost of the New Zealand visa depends on the applicant's citizenship. The cost above was calculated for a US applicant living in the US, with only the processing fee applicable if applying outside of New Zealand on a US passport. Depending on the consulate, additional application fees may apply to you. For more information about the New Zealand student visa and calculating the costs, visit the Immigration New Zealand website.

Round Trip Flight from Gateway city to Program site: The listed flight cost is the estimated cost of a round-trip ticket from the gateway city of Los Angeles to Dunedin. However, you may depart from the city of your choice.

***Students living outside of the Los Angeles area may need to arrange for a connecting flight to a gateway city. These are additional variable costs, to be calculated individually by the student.

Exchange Rate: 1 USD = 1.42 New Zealand Dollar on April 3, 2017
