Before you meet with us
If you are thinking about your study options or you're ready to enrol, then get in touch using our contact form or call us and we can arrange a visit at your preferred campus with a Course Advisor. They will discuss programme options, the enrolment process and can answer any questions you have.
NZSE can also assist students with their application for student loans and living allowances. See more on our Scholarships and Allowances page, or find more information on student loans and allowances can also be obtained from Studylink
We recommend that students bring with them the following documents:
1. Original Passport or Birth Certificate
2. Evidence of Bank Account- i.e. a copy of Bank Statement
3. Evidence of your IRD Number
4. Evidence of other Educational achievements if any.
NZSE welcomes all prospective students who are citizens or residents of New Zealand. Otherwise, you require an international study visa. People of all ages and backgrounds are eligible for study with students expected to:
• Have an acceptable level of English
• Meet the entry requirement of the specific programme
• Adhere to the School's policy and norms
• Meet the attendance policy
Many of our programmes have specific requirements as part of the application process. You may be required to submit a portfolio of work, or attend a selection interview or audition. Competition can be tough for some of our programmes so it's best to come prepared. Check out programme pages for specific requirements, or reach out to us with a question and we will be happy to help.
If you’re planning to start tertiary study for the first time, you may be eligible for fees-free support. Fees-free study includes all compulsory fees up to $12,000 for tertiary study at any level. The policy covers one year's study, which is usually 1 EFTS/120 credits or points.Fees-Free Information
