Let's talk fees: or how the most beautiful place may also be cheaper!

Eric had a post "Let's Talk Tuition
" with a great pic of someone burning money. Perhaps the ultimate blasphemy in the West today! His post starts like this:
One class costs around $1200. Depending on what holidays fall during the semester you're looking at about $100-$120 per 3 hour lecture.
It's time for an message from my employers... In New Zealand fees are around NZ$3,477 per year for PhD students
(plus a few extras but say around NZ$4,000 in total. That's around US$2,500 or GB Pounds 1,400 or just a tad over Euros 2,000 for a full year of doctoral study. Living costs are also lower here than most other places in the developed world. And Universities like Auckland regularly rank OK in international comparisons.
And, now - because you can't wait - the good news
! From next year (Feb 2006 we work with the calendar year since Christmas is our summer holiday) International PhD Students will pay local fees. Now there's a deal you can't beat - without counting all our Lord of the Rings and Narnia scenery!
BTW Both Tyndale-Carey Graduate School
and the School of Theology at the University of Auckland
teach PhD candidates.
