Study on campus semester 2 – July 2022

In late November, the New Zealand Government announced that they will begin allowing fully-vaccinated foreign nationals (including international students with visas valid for travel) to return from 30 April 2022 onwards in a staged reopening. It is currently unclear what this announcement will mean for individual students and we are awaiting further advice from the Government on this in the coming weeks.

If you are interested in joining us on campus in New Zealand, for semester 2 – July 2022, we welcome your application. Should border restrictions prevent you from joining us, we will be in touch before the start of semester 2 to advise you of your study options.

Follow the qualification links to apply.

The qualifications with an asterisk* may take one semester longer to complete if started in semester 2 – July 2022. Please contact us for advice before applying.
