2023 Upcoming Intakes in New Zealand for Indian Students - Apply Now

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. 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 

Note: 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, the February intake is equally good for certain programs. We suggest, that 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:
