What are the upcoming intakes in New Zealand?

Know all about the intakes available in New Zealand

Unlike a single intake in Indian universities, New Zealand universities and institutions offer two major intakes. Intakes may also be referred to as a semester in some institutions. 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 Indian 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.
In order to make a well-informed decision, you can book a free counselling session with our experienced counsellors who can advise you on available intakes, course selection, application submission, and visa procedure.
Here’s an overview of the intakes available for different programs in universities and colleges:
