Application Fee for Vet Selection

Sarah S made this Official Information request to Massey University

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Sarah S to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Sarah S

Dear Massey University,

I write to request the following information under the Official Information Act, regarding the price increase and cost breakdown of the Application Fee for Vet Selection.

The application fee, required for selection into the BVSc professional phase, increased from $112.50 in 2021 to $395.00 in 2022 (inclusive GST).

I understand that this fee covers the cost of screening and testing applicants (Stage 1 selection assessments) and other related administration.

I am requesting any and all information in accordance with the Official Information Act 1982 in relation to:

1. What factors led to the decision to increase the fee for the 2022 intake selection?

2. What consultation measures were undertaken to decide on the fee and if any measures were considered to minimise the financial burden on students, parents and caregivers?

3. A complete calculated breakdown of how the $395.00 application fee will be budgeted and spent by Massey University

For the purposes of the Act, I am a New Zealand citizen and residing in New Zealand at the time of making this request.

I understand that a decision on a request for information under the OIA should be made within 20 working days of receiving that request.

Yours faithfully,

Sarah S
