Registration

A registration fee of NZ Dollars (NZD) 200 is payable when you enrol for any course at Crown. This is a once-only payment. If you extend or change your course you do not pay another registration fee.

Accommodation

There is a once-only payment of NZD 200 (accommodation reservation fee) for arrangement of your accommodation. The weekly accommodation fee varies according to the type of accommodation you reserve. If you choose homestay or HomestayPLUS, any unused portion of this fee is refunded if you find other accommodation. There are no refunds if you move out of a studio or apartment early. We must receive two week's notice of your intention to leave your homestay. If you go on holiday and wish to return to the same homestay, there will be a NZD 140 (homestay) or NZD 210 (HomestayPLUS) per week fee. This is paid to the homestay to reserve your place.

Payment of fees

All fees must be received by Crown before your course commences. You can pay your fees by bank draft by posting them to the address above, or by telegraphic transfer (T/T) from your local bank to the following bank account:
