Entry Requirements for International Students

An International Student is any student who:

  1. Does not have New Zealand residency or citizenship and
  2. Does not have refugee status

Note: Students from Australia, Niue, the Cook Islands, and Tokelau are counted as having New Zealand residency for the purposes of study.

To apply for an academic programme, all International students must provide:

  • A completed and signed Student Enrolment form which can be downloaded from our website: Enrol, or contact us by email or telephone, and we will post/email or fax you a copy.
  • Proof of your English ability (one of the following: recent IELTS or TOEFL test results or evidence that your medium of instruction has been English). Persons not meeting the above criteria can appear for an internal English Language Test which is conducted at the school.
  • A notarised English translation of your academic records, from your highest level of academic study
  • If you are still at school, a copy of your most recent school report
  • Details of any relevant work experience you would like us to consider
  • Registration fees in form of a bank cheque or draft of NZ$200 in the name of IT Training Limited to cover the administration cost.

All applications will be responded to promptly. It usually takes 2 – 3 working days to assess an application and make a decision. In busy seasons it may take up to 5 working days.

If you do not meet some of the requirements, you may be sent a Conditional Offer of Place. When you meet the stated requirement(s), send the evidence to ITTI for a final Offer of Place. You generally cannot use a Conditional Offer of Place to pay your fees or apply for a Visa.

When you meet the requirements and are accepted into a programme we will send you the following documents:

  1. Offer of Place (including Accommodation Guarantee)
  2. Information pack including medical insurance information, campus map, orientation information etc
  3. Receipt for your registration fees

Once you have received your final (unconditional) Offer of Place, you can pay your tuition fees and arrange your accommodation, insurance, and travel. Do not send any tuition fees to ITTI until your Offer of Place is unconditional (unless you have been contacted specially.)

Your Conditional Offer of Place will show the academic tuition fees per year. This is quoted in New Zealand dollars and covers a full-time programme, including course materials.

Credit Transfers for International Students

ITTI will accept credits gained by a student in any other institution locally or overseas. The Academic Manager at ITTI will assess all application requests for Credit Transfers.

Telegraphic Transfer

A quick method of payment from outside New Zealand is by telegraphic transfer. Please contact your bank for details on this form of payment. ITTI’s Trust fund bank details are as follows:

Account name: Public Trust A/C ITTI
Bank name: Bank of New Zealand
Branch: Level 5, 280 Queen Street, Auckland
Account no: 02 0536 0305865 01

Please ensure that your full name and reference number are clearly stated on the bank transfer document. Once you have arranged your telegraphic transfer, please advise ITTI by faxing a copy of the bank transfer document to +64 9 528 6550

You will receive an official ITTI receipt when your payment has been received. This receipt is essential for lodging your Student Visa – keep it in a safe place.

To begin with reassessment and appeals should be dealt with internally – kept within the institute. If you believe that your work has been assessed unfairly, you must first discuss the matter with your teacher. If you remain dissatisfied with the assessment, ask the Student Services & Relationship Manager for help to appeal to the Management Team at New Zealand School of Education. This step will be recorded on the “Fix-It” Form.

External appeals may be used when an assessment matter cannot be settled within the institute. The Student Services & Relationship Manager can advise on how to make such an appeal. External appeals are made to the person who moderates ITTI assessments. The final source of appeal is to:
