FINANCES

Students planning to go to tertiary study after they leave school should apply for their student allowance or loan by

16 December. Studylink expects around 180,000 students to apply for their student allowance or loan for the 2019 academic year.

Applying by 16 December means Studylink can get everything sorted so that the student receives their funding from the start of their course. Students don't need to have their NCEA results or have locked down all their plans in order to apply.

 

Their application can be updated as things are confirmed. It's more important to allow enough time for all the steps in the application process to be completed. Students can find out more about applying for a student allowance or loan on the Studylink website. Pop a reminder in your calendar, even better go straight to studylink.govt.nz to apply now.
