New Zealand

Not just clean in terms of their environment New Zealanders share a strong sense of guardianship (kaitiaki-tanga) for our environment. Land and place are central to our Mori people’s identity. That connectedness has rubbed off onto non-Mori New Zealanders (pakeha), reinforced by the pioneering heritage of their own forebears.

Here are some of the reasons why international students choose New Zealand for higher studies.

  • Broad opportunities for research and learning.
  • Easy entry requirements
  • Quality learning experience
  • Affordable costs
  • Beautiful Destination
  • A beautiful Country, with vibrant and neat environment.

Institutes in New Zealand


Following should serve as a quick way to explain how your workflow and process is going to happen.



Think about which courses you are interested in, and if they will lead into your chosen career. Carefully research courses, institutions and their locations. Consider the areas of specialization offered through different courses, and which specializations will best suit your intended career path. Once you have decided on the best course, you need to find out which education providers offer it, and which provider best suits your requirements. You might like to consider the size of the campus, the available facilities and the support services available to international students.



Once you have chosen your course and education provider, it is time to apply. Check the entrance and English language requirements to make sure you are eligible. If not, you may have to consider a different course, or even bridging or foundation study, which may increase your chances. Contact your education provider and ask about their application requirements and application dates, as these will differ for each provider. Make a note of important deadlines and make sure you meet them. Remember to allow for postal times when sending forms by mail. International students usually apply directly to New Zealand institutions either by post or online. You can either download application forms from institute websites or request the forms to be posted. Another option is to contact an education agent or an overseas representative of the institution to which you are applying. Your application form will ask you which course(s) you are applying for and give you details of the documentation you need to supply. Most application forms require the following: personal details certified proof of your level of English language proficiency details of previous educational qualifications, such as academic transcripts course preferences (the course you are applying for) a summary of employment experience (if applicable). If you are still completing your education you can provide evidence of your most recent marks until it is possible to provide your final marks. If the documents you supply are not in English, you must provide an official certified translation. Most institutions charge a non-refundable application fee of around NZD $50 ½ NZD$100 that must be included with your application. Some institutions waive this fee if the application is made on line. Before sending your application, check your visa requirements with New Zealand embassy to ensure you will qualify for a visa if your application is successful. If at any time in the application process you are uncertain how to proceed, don't hesitate to contact your education provider. They are there to help you.



Once the education provider receives your application it will be assessed and you will be notified of the result. Be prepared to be patient as it may be a few weeks (longer for postgraduate applications) before your application is processed.
