Tuition for a year of full-time study (10 courses) for a domestic student costs on average $3,500 ($14,000 for an international student). Compared to other universities, you would save over $10,000/year in tuition and housing costs by choosing NIC and staying at home.

A few other expenses, besides accommodation and transport, should be taken into consideration:
- We try to use as few textbooks as possible as we prefer to develop our own curriculum to be responsive to changes in the industry.
- You will need an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription and various other software accounts (most are free).
- It is possible to use the computer labs on campus for all your studying; however, owning a computer at home will give you much more flexibility. It doesn’t matter if that computer is Mac or Windows-based.
Our financial aid advisors can help you figure out your funding options, from loans to scholarships and bursaries. In 2021, the North Island College Foundation awarded over $548,000 to students in scholarships and bursaries. In 2022, more than 500 awards are available, with an average value of $1,650.
