International Students: How to pay your fees
Protection of International Student Fees
WelTec, as a signatory to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students, is required to have a fee protection policy to safeguard all fees paid by international students. WelTec is governed by the New Zealand Crown Entities Act, the Education Act, and WelTec Council regulations in regard to student fees. An individual fee account is maintained for each enrolled student.
There are two ways to pay fees at WelTec: by International Funds Transfer, or by Bank Transfer.
1. International Funds Transfer (preferred method)
If you are outside of New Zealand you can pay your fees by making an international funds transfer directly from your local bank account to the WelTec Western Union account. The international funds transfer helps you to make payment safely and quickly in your local currency or in other major currencies and you can track the payment on the Internet.
Once we receive your fees, we will issue a receipt. You can use this receipt to apply for your student visa.
Please read the Western Union Student Pay Instructions carefully. You should only begin this process on the day you are ready to pay your fees, as once you have received authorisation you must make the payment within 48 hours. If you experience difficulty please email Western Union firstname.lastname@example.org
Your study fees are inclusive of travel, medical and personal effects insurance.

2. Bank Transfer
Another way to pay is by Bank Transfer (telegraphic transfer) to WelTec’s bank account (see below). Remember to include your name and other personal information (such as your date of birth and passport number). This will help us identify your payment. Please email us a copy of your deposit receipt.
