Alternative Accommodation

Finding suitable accommodation in Queenstown can take time and as a seasonal town, you may experience difficulty securing a rental flat in the winter and summer seasons.  We encourage you to begin your search early.

Expect a room to rent in Queenstown to be around NZ$180-$250 per week. That’s a room to yourself in a flatshare or houseshare. You may find cheaper, around the NZ$130-$160 per week mark, for a shared room. Note that prices are approximate and are subject to change.

Things to consider:

  • You will usually be required to be in town to attend viewing and meet the letting agent / landlord
  • A tenancy agreement will be signed – these are usually for a minimum period of 1 year.  In some cases you may be able to find a shorter term lease if required but this may limit options.
  • The normal down payment for securing a lease is one weeks rent in advance and a bond amounting to 4 weeks of rent.
  • You will be required to manage your bill payments and arrange utility accounts with providers.
  • It is important to be sure that the group you intend to flat with is well tested and has longevity.  It is hard to manage flatting situations when disagreements between tenants arise.


Tuition Fees | Domestic Students
As per the terms and conditions of enrolment at QRC, fees are to be paid in full no less than one month prior to course commencement date.
Tuition Year 2 $13,538 $13,538

There are two main options by which to pay your tuition fees:

  • Option 1 – Student loan through Study Link
  • Option 2 – Pay privately.

Option 1 – Student Loan

If you qualified for a student loan (tuition and/or living costs) during year 1, your account with Study Link should still be active.  You will need to confirm with Study Link that you are returning to study and this can be done via their returning to study section on the WEBSITE 

QRC will be asked to verify your return to study and once approved, payment of your tuition fees will be made directly to QRC.

Option 2 – Pay privately

Alternatively you can pay the your tuition fees into the Public Trust account, the details for which you will find in the Payment Method tab.

Please use your student ID as the reference when making payment.

How to make payments

QRC uses a Public Trust Student Fee Protect service to manage tuition fees. Fee Protect safeguards the money paid by you to your education provider. Public Trust will make payments to QRC over the duration of your course, in line with NZQA’s Student Fee Protection Rules and the Education and Training Act.

Tuition fees and any lump sum accommodation fees (those greater than 4 weeks in advance) need to be paid to Public Trust. Other payments are paid directly to QRC.
