Fee waiver options

The programmes below are covered by the fee waiver until the end of 2024. You’ll only need to cover course-related costs (such as buying textbooks) and the Student Services Fee (although if you are studying online, this fee may be reduced).

Fee waivers apply to the 120 taught credits of a Research Master's degree, not to the 120 research credits.

CPA Australia membership and enrolment in CPA Australia exams are not covered as the fee waivers apply to Lincoln course enrolments only.


The fee waiver is only available to domestic students (New Zealand citizens and permanent residents) residing in New Zealand at the time of study.

If you have a New Zealand residents visa you are eligible for a tuition fee waiver as long as you are admitted to one of the programmes listed for the tuition fee waiver and are residing in New Zealand while studying. You must supply a copy of your international passport and eVisa or visa label.
