The funding amount you are entitled to receive to purchase tuition is referred to as your ‘balance of entitlement’.
Your balance of entitlement depends on what your level of English was at time of your visa application and how much money you paid to Immigration New Zealand. It will be between NZ$1,531.82 and NZ$6,131.82.
If you gained residency under the Parent Category, your balance of entitlement will be NZ$1,531.82.
