Annual Maximum Fee Movement

Every year, the Government regulates the maximum level by which tertiary education organisations (TEOs) can increase tuition fees through the Annual Maximum Fee Movement (AMFM).

The AMFM applies to domestic students enrolled in courses that receive government funding at New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) level 3 or above.

Prior to setting the AMFM, the Minister responsible for tertiary education consults on the conditions of the AMFM notice. This notice is published in the New Zealand Gazette and people are invited to send in their submissions.

The Minister of Education invited submissions on a proposed AMFM rate of 2% for 2020 on 17 July 2019. Submissions close on 7 August 2019.
