How to apply

Enrolling at NorthTec is easy - just follow these steps

 

1. CHOOSE A PROGRAMME 

To find out more about a programme, download our prospectus, view our full list of programmes online, contact your local NorthTec-approved educational agent or email us with your specific enquiry.

We will send you and International Student Application form with any relevant information and NorthTec's entry requirements.

2. SEND YOUR APPLICATION

Complete the International Student Registration form and send it to us via email or post. You could also submit your application form via a registered international educational agent or apply online.

Don’t forget to include your personal details, the programme you wish to study, photographs and copies of your academic records, including proof of your English language level.

If you are accepted, we will send you an Offer of Place to study at NorthTec. If your English is not of a sufficient standard, you will receive a conditional Offer of Place, which we’ll change to unconditional as soon as you meet the required level.

3. PAY YOUR FEES

Your Offer of Place letter will list the fees you need to pay, including your tuition fee and any other fees as applicable, e.g. homestay, airport pick-up, etc. It will also give you the NorthTec bank account number that you need to transfer your fees into with your student ID as reference.

Please note that an offer is not confirmed until full payment is received so fees should be paid as soon as possible to secure your place.

When we receive your fees, we will send a copy of the receipt to you or your agent. You can then use this receipt and your Offer of Place letter to apply for your student visa. 

4. APPLY FOR YOUR STUDENT VISA

You will need to apply for a student visa before you can come to New Zealand. Full details of visa requirements and advice on employment while studying in New Zealand are available through your educational agent or Immigration New Zealand.

Once your student visa is approved, we will help you arrange your accommodation. If you have applied for a homestay family, we will forward their details to you or your agent so that you can make contact with them before you leave home if you wish.  

5. PREPARE TO TRAVEL TO NEW ZEALAND
