Where Does Your Student Services Levy Go?

Ever wondered where your Student Services Levy goes? So did we. It was weirdly difficult finding out where the money ends up — we waited over two weeks for a response from Comms. They said, ”there is considerable complexity in the management of the levy particularly where it is only part of the overall resource allocation for a range of student service categories”.

This is the breakdown for 2017, since the 2018 spending isn’t out yet. We got this info largely from the 2017 Annual Report, the Student Services Levy FAQ, and the Student Services Levy report, which are all available online. The Student Services Levy for 2019 is currently in the process of being set, which is done by the Advisory Committee of the Student Services Levy.

About the Author ()

Salient is a magazine. Salient is a website. Salient is an institution founded in 1938 to cater to the whim and fancy of students of Victoria University. We are partly funded by VUWSA and partly by gold bullion that was discovered under a pile of old Salients from the 40's. Salient welcomes your participation in debate on all the issues that we present to you, and if you're a student of Victoria University then you're more than welcome to drop in and have tea and scones with the contributors of this little rag in our little hideaway that overlooks Wellington.
