What are the upcoming intakes in New Zealand?

Know about the deadlines & intakes available in the New Zealand

Unlike a single intake in Bangladeshi universities, New Zealand universities and institutions offer two major intakes. In some universities, intakes may also be referred to as a semester. The two intakes available in New Zealand are:

  • Semester 1: February to June
  • Semester 2: July to November 

Admissions for vocational courses may also be available in the months of March, April and May.

Which intake to opt for?

It can get a bit confusing to choose the intake that’s best for you. Consider factors like the availability of your preferred program, your academic records, entrance test scores, acceptance rates, job opportunities and your readiness to join the program whilst making a decision.

While most Bangladeshi students prefer the July intake, February intake is equally good for certain programs. We suggest, if you do not have your score cards ready, it’s better to skip the haste and apply for the next intake. 

Here’s an overview of the intakes available for different programs in universities and colleges:
