Course and university guidance for international students

If you’re keen to explore study and visa options in New Zealand, we’re keen to help.

Course selection and University/College application

With so many courses and universities to choose from, deciding where and what to study can be challenging. As experts in international student placements in New Zealand, our consultants can help you choose a course that's right for you and make sure you have the best chance at having your application accepted.

How does it work?

When you first meet with us, we'll discuss about:

  • your education and experience, interests, timeline, budget and career or migration goals
  • courses that match your needs
  • the application processes
  • visas and which one is most likely to meet your specific circumstances
  • upcoming information events that might be of interest to you

Submitting your study applications

We submit your applications on your behalf and supply the institution course application documents and institution program guides; compile your applications and certify supporting documents. We then take care of sending your application to your university or institution of choice.

You may be invited to meet university or institution representatives who will assess your application and determine your eligibility for the course. You may also have the opportunity to discuss course structures and graduate outcomes in our education seminars. 

Response from the study provider

You will receive a response from the school or university within 2-6 weeks of your application being submitted. If you’re offered a place in a course, you will receive an offer letter. In some cases, a representative of the school or university can assess your eligibility for the course and print an offer letter during your interview at our office or at one of IDP’s many international student events throughout the year. 

Acceptance and payment

If there are no conditions on your offer letter, you may accept the offer immediately. Examples of conditions that could be specified include supplying a new IELTS test result, supplying an academic transcript of a recently completed study, or supplying certified documents.

Offers can be accepted at an IDP office by paying the deposit directly to the university. Your counsellor will guide you through this process to make it easier.

IDP New Zealand is recognised by Education New Zealand as a genuine agent, our license was renewed in November 2020.
