International students

A step-by-step guide to enrolling at WelTec for international students.

Process for local students.

1. Select a course

Find the right course by browsing our course list.

2. Complete and submit your application form

Download the international enrolment form.

Email the completed form with the required documents to international.admissions@weltec.ac.nz or deliver the documentation to your agent.

Credit Transfer

If you already have a teritary-level qualification, or part of one, you can apply for academic credit transfer or exemptions towards WelTec Bachelor Degrees or 2-year Diplomas. We do not allow credit transfer to programmes shorter than two years.

3. Application assessment and offer of place

Once we receive your application we will assess whether you meet the English Language and academic entry requirements for your chosen programme.

If your application is approved we will send you an Offer of Place. This will include payment details, airport arrival and accommodation information.

If you decide not to study at WelTec, please contact us.

4. Fee payment and plan your travel

Fee payment details are included in your Offer of Place. Ensure you have read and understood the WelTec refund policy before you make payment to WelTec.

Plan to arrive at WelTec in time to attend International Student Orientation. Once you have booked your flights, organise your airport pick up and accommodation at least 10 working days before you arrive.

Late bookings will not be accepted.

5. Apply for NZ student visa

Once we receive your fee payment, we will issue you with a fee receipt to support your student visa application. See Immigration New Zealand for visa requirements and processes.
