I'll use my course for this year only as an example:
eight papers (ie. courses) at either $NZ 480 or $550 each. Works out at
around $NZ 4050 for the year.
Multiply that by five years for my degree equals $NZ 20,250
So in US dollars that is $US 1615 for this year, and $US 8,070 (approx) for
five year degree.  (If I'm converting correctly).

Of course these are at subsidised (by government) rates as you will find in
most post-British-colonial countries (e.g. Australia). Still, fees rise
quite considerable every year and it is still very very difficult for
students to live without borrowing for tuition through the government
student loan scheme. This leaves most graduates spending much of their adult
life paying off their debt to the government.
