Education providers must meet a number of requirements before they can offer courses to international students. The students must also meet our requirements to be eligible to study here.
Our requirements are based around a provider’s offer of a place to an overseas student. These include specific course requirements that you must meet before you can offer a place.
Additionally, any provider offering courses to overseas students has obligations to meet under Section 352 of the Immigration Act.
Please note: immigration considerations are only part of the requirements education providers must meet to be able to enrol students from overseas. For more information visit the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) and the Ministry of Education websites.
First of all, they must have an offer of a place. Students must also meet some general requirements both before they arrive and during their stay in New Zealand.
