International Student Orientation

Attendance at International Student Orientation is compulsory for all new international students. Your Offer of Place to study with us includes your Orientation dates. Please plan to arrive in New Zealand a few days before Orientation, so you have time to settle and rest before your first days with us.

Your orientation as an International student will cover things that are important to starting your life in New Zealand, such as:

  • Finalising your academic schedule, course, enrolment and meeting your tutors
  • Information about insurance, the New Zealand Police, water safety, banking in New Zealand, public transport and other important matters
  • Meeting support and administration staff so you know who to talk to no matter what questions you have

On orientation day be sure to bring all appropriate paperwork including your passport, so we can make everything easy on the day.
