STUDENT LOANS AND ALLOWANCES - Apply by 16 December
Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible for their student loans and allowances. Students don't need to have their NCEA results or have locked down all their study plans. Their application can be updated as things are confirmed. By applying early, students will allow enough time for all the steps in the application process to be completed before their course starts.
PROVING YOUR IDENTITY USING RealMe
When applying for a Student Allowance and Loan for the first time, students will need to prove their identity. They can do this by signing up online for a RealMe verified identity.
Students then get a free photo taken to complete the process at participating PostShops. This means students can prove who they are without having to provide copies of a passport and birth certificate.
STUDENT JOB SEARCH
Student Job Search (SJS) is an online service that helps students gain work experience and extra money while studying at tertiary level.
Their service is free to students who are enrolled in tertiary study for 2019, or who have a letter of confirmation from any NZ tertiary education provider. Students can then start using SJS up to four months before they start study.
SJS advertises thousands of jobs every year on their website, just for tertiary students. Students can register and start applying for jobs by going to www.sjs.co.nz
