This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 January 2012, impose an export education levy payable in respect of any year from 1 January 2012 onwards. Previously, Education (Export Education Levy) Regulations applied only to any single academic year.
The levy is payable by all providers who receive tuition fees from international students, other than students who are sponsored by the New Zealand Aid Programme administered by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade or who study overseas. The levy in respect of a particular year comprises a flat fee of $185, plus 0.45% of the year's total tuition fees received from students. These amounts are the same as those that applied for the 2010 and 2011 academic years.
The levy is administered by the Ministry of Education.
These regulations also revoke the Education (Export Education Levy) Regulations 2009.
Date of notification in Gazette: 3 November 2011.
These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Education.
