Tuition and Program Fee


As institutions around the world determine program costs at different times, it is difficult for Education Abroad to provide actual cost information until shortly before the beginning of a program. You are encouraged to consult this document on a regular basis as it is frequently updated with the most current cost information and billing information available.

Students are assessed the standard University Park Penn State Tuition and Technology Fee, an Education Abroad Program Fee, and an Education Abroad Administrative Fee.

This budget is based on students who enroll as exchange students at Victoria University in Wellington. Housing fee will vary depending on housing option.

For exact pricing, students should contact directly the nearest Consulate for the host country.
