Annual maximum fee movement (AMFM) consultation

We are consulting on the proposed 2% annual maximum fee movement for tertiary education providers. This consultation has now closed.

For 2018, the Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment proposes an AMFM rate of 2%. This applies to tertiary education organisations providing courses at NZQF Level 3 or above and applies to domestic students only. The Government considers that this proposed increase strikes a balance between allowing tertiary providers to keep pace with costs in 2017, while avoiding significant fee increases for domestic students.

The Minister will finalise the AMFM rate following consultation, after 22 June 2017.
This consultation has now closed.

Go to the New Zealand Gazette website (external link)  to read the notice and the legislation. The notice also covers the exception process.
