Every year the Government allocates funding to a range of tertiary education initiatives as part of the budget. This section includes information on recent budgets and their implications for tertiary education.

Most of this funding is appropriated, or made available, through Vote tertiary education. The Ministry of Education (MoE) is the lead agency for the sector.

Our Statement of Intent explains how we will manage the services involved in providing the funding to tertiary education organisations (TEOs).

The Government’s financial year runs from 1 July to 30 June, whereas we base our funding for most TEOs on the calendar year. This means it can take a while for budget decisions to have an impact.
