Financial Services

Whitireia provides a range of financial support services including scholarships, financial advice and student hardship fund grants. You can access these services through the Student Financial Advisor.

The Student Financial Advisor can provide:

  • advice on managing your personal finances
  • advice on Study Link
  • a confidential discussion on any other financial issues
  • access to discretionary emergency funds and hardship grants in some specific situations.

Funds can be made available to you if you are faced with urgent or immediate expenses you are unable to pay. For example, you could receive assistance to pay for unexpected travel, unexpected health expenses or you could receive food vouchers. All information given to the Student Financial Advisor is confidential.

The Student Financial Advisor is based in Kia Ngāwari, the Health Centre, at the Porirua campus but can provide advice for all students in the Wellington region, and for distance learners.  Students at the Auckland Campus can access financial advice through the Student Support Officer.
