Auckland Uni fees rise by maximum allowed

Auckland University has confirmed it will join other tertiary institutions in raising fees.

Student fees will rise 4% in 2011, the maximum allowed under current legislation.

Several other universities - including Victoria, Canterbury and Massey - will also raise fees by 4%.

David Do of the New Zealand Union of Students Association says the rise is a result of government underfunding.
