What are the upcoming intakes in New Zealand?
Know about the deadlines & intakes available in the New Zealand
Unlike a single intake in Sri Lankan 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 Sri Lankan 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:
Undergraduate and postgraduate in a University
July / February
Vocational courses in institutes / colleges
February / March / April / May / July
*Deadlines vary basis institution and your program. Please speak with your IDP counsellor for more information.
