Enrolment


Signing up so you can start studying with us

Enrolment is the process by which you and NaSA legally commit you to studying a beauty course with us.

If you are a new student with us, once you’ve completed the application and interview process successfully, you may receive an enrolment form and supporting documentation with an offer of place. You will then need to complete the process.

Please note that enrolment conditions may be different for you depending on whether you have studied with us before or not, and if you are a domestic or international student.

In this section, we have a variety of information, including:

Domestic Student versus International Student

Domestic Student

A domestic student is a:

  • New Zealand citizen; or
  • Australian citizen in New Zealand; or
  • citizen of a New Zealand protectorate; or
  • a foreign citizen with a New Zealand residency class visa.

International Student

An international student is a foreign (non-New Zealand or Australian) citizen who must gain a student visa and permit in order to study in New Zealand.

Enrolment Conditions

Enrolment is the process in which you commit yourself to the course. Completion of the interview neither enrols you in the course nor guarantees you a place in the course.

In order for us to complete your enrolment, we and the law requires us to have:

All students must complete this requirement.

We use an enrolment contract similar to one created by the Ministry of Education. The information you supply on the enrolment form is for both Government departments’ and our own purposes. Please read the instructions and fill out the form as truthfully and honestly as possible.

We may supply other forms with your enrolment form. You may need to fill these out or follow the instructions to complete those forms successfully prior to us enrolling you.

On enrolment, you will need to prove you have:

  • New Zealand citizenship or citizenship of a New Zealand protectorate; or
  • Foreign citizenship and New Zealand permanent residency (Australian citizens may not have a Permanent Residency Visa and Permit stamp but qualify for domestic fees); or
  • Foreign citizenship and New Zealand Student Visa and Permit

Domestic students may not need to prove this to us on secondary (future) enrolments.

By signing the enrolment form, you understand and agree to abide by the conditions of the legally-binding contract as well as all the rules, regulations, policies, and procedures associated with the school.

For information on withdrawal and refunds, please see the withdrawal procedure.

The Student Handbook is a companion to the enrolment form, and by signing the enrolment form, you verify you understand the information not only in the enrolment form but also in the Student Handbook as well as on our Web site and in the Prospectus.

All students must complete this requirement.

All students are required their legal citizenship and legal ability to study in New Zealand.

All first-time students and international students must complete this requirement.

Domestic students enrolling for a secondary enrolment may not need to prove this.


New Zealand Citizens

For New Zealand citizens, this can be a:

  • Long-form birth certificate with your place of birth stated as New Zealand, the Cook Islands, Tokelau, or Niue, and listing your gender; or
  • New Zealand passport; or
  • Statement of Whakapapa, with date of birth, countersigned by a kaumatua; or
  • Certificate of citizenship or a letter of confirmation of citizenship.

A driver’s license does not prove you are a citizen and therefore cannot be accepted as such.


New Zealand Residents (Non-NZ-Citizens) and International Students

For non-New Zealand citizens, proof of citizenship needs to be an overseas passport. You will also need to provide proof of a residency class visa or right to study in New Zealand.

We must see the original student visa and permit, if you are an international student.


Acceptable Evidence

You can either show us the original at interview or enrolment or send us a verified copy. Do not send us your originals in the post or by courier.

All students who do not hold New Zealand citizenship must complete this requirement.

All students who are not New Zealand citizens must prove their legal right to study in New Zealand.

All first-time students who do not hold New Zealand citizenship and international students must complete this requirement.

Domestic students enrolling for a secondary enrolment may not need to prove this.


New Zealand Residents (Non-NZ-Citizens) and International Students

For non-New Zealand citizens, this must be an overseas passport with a valid New Zealand:

  • Residency class visa and permit; or
  • Student visa and permit.

For more information on student visas and permits, see www.immigration.govt.nz/study/

We must see the original student visa and permit if you are an international student.


Acceptable Evidence

You can either show us the original residency class or student visa and permit at interview or enrolment or send us a verified copy of the residency class visa. Do not send us your originals in the post or by courier.

All students must complete this requirement.

Students new to NaSA

The proof of identity you submitted at your interview should suffice.

If you did not submit this, we will need to see photo ID. This can be your passport or a driver’s license.


Students returning to NaSA

Your identity should be known to us.


Change of Name

If your legal name is different from the one on your birth certificate, passport or other document, you must submit evidence that this new name is your current legal name. You can do this by submitting a marriage certificate (in case of name change by marriage) or deed poll declaration (change of legal name only).

All domestic students must complete this requirement.

Students new to NaSA

Domestic students will have to pay a deposit on enrolment. This varies from course to course.

The deposit holds your place in the programme.

We must have your deposit before we:

  • Fill out a Verification of Study (VoS)
  • Authorise your student loan
  • Carry out further enrolment work
  • Can report you eligible for tuition subsidy

You must pay your deposit directly to your Public Trust account number and individual analysis code as located on your Public Trust form at least 24 hours before you enrol.


Students returning to NaSA

Domestic students studying with us may not have to pay any deposit on secondary enrolment.

International students must complete this requirement on enrolment.

International students will have to pay their full course fees on enrolment.

The fees hold your place in the programme.

We must have your fees before we:

  • Provisionally enrol you
  • Confirm your eligibility for a student visa
  • Carry out further enrolment work

You must pay your fees directly to your Public Trust account number and individual analysis code as located on your Public Trust form at least 24 hours before you enrol.

All students must complete this requirement by the first day of the programme.
All students must complete this requirement.

In accordance with the Education Act, any course fees you pay will be placed in a managed trust account held by Public Trust.

In the case of receivership, liquidation (involuntary) or the revocation of NZQA Registration and/or Accreditation, your individual Public Trust account protects your paid fees. Individual means your student fee trust account pertains to you and is covered by an agreement between us and Public Trust.

You are required to complete the Public Trust application and turn it in on enrolment, where applicable.

Your student trust account works as follows. To us, Public Trust releases:

  • $3,000 or 20% of the programme fee, whichever is the lesser, on the ninth (9th) calendar day after the programme’s starting date for domestic students and eleventh (11th) business day after the programme’s starting date for international students.
  • The remainder of the programme fee, in arrears and in equal payments, fortnightly.

This means if we could no longer provide tuition to you for one of the reasons outlined above, you would be able to use the remainder of your fees (still in the trust account) to continue your studies at another provider or opt for a pro-rata refund.

If you are suspended, expelled or if you withdraw or disappear from the programme on or after the 9th calendar day after the programme’s starting date (domestic students) or on or after the 11th business day after the programme’s starting date (international students), you are not eligible for a refund, as per the conditions of your enrolment contract with us.

For more info on Student Fee Protection, please see the Fee Protect Web page.

PLEASE NOTE: The above statements are in no way indicative of the financial or operational status of the National School of Aesthetics; however, we have provided this information to help you make an informed decision about your education provider. Also, we are required by the Government to inform you of this policy.

Enrolments are taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

Your enrolment will be denied if any part is missing or not correct. Please ensure all parts are completed prior to submission. If, after we receive a partial submission, you take no further action, we reserve the right to bill you for time spent on “chasing you up”. See the charges at Fees and Charges.

Making a false declaration is an offence under the Crimes Act 1961, so ensure the information you give in all documentation is truthful. We have the right to cancel your enrolment if you have misrepresented yourself in any way in any documentation you provide us.

When fully enrolled, you have paid for a service that allows you the right to attend the programme as enrolled in on your enrolment form and accepted into in your acceptance letter. We provide this service in full upon enrolment. The charges associated with your programme do not diminish or reduce in any way if you do not attend parts of the programme.

International Student Enrolments

International students have more information available to them with regards to the enrolment process. Please read:

What is a Verified Copy?

A verified copy is a photocopy of an original document, signed and dated as a true and accurate copy by someone authorised in the Oaths and Declarations Act 1957 as able to take declarations. This person usually has an official stamp to use as well.

People authorised under the Oaths and Declarations Act 1957 to perform this include:

  • Justice of the Peace (JP) or Notary Public
  • Barrister or solicitor of the High Court
  • Court Registrar or Deputy Resigtrar
  • Member of Parliament
  • New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA), Public Trust, government department (including Internal Affairs and Inland Revenue) or local authority employee designated as taking oaths and declarations

If you are from a remote community and unable to access someone in one of these positions, you can use a school principal, minister of religion or general practitioner (GP).

The person signing the document must list their name, official designation, and date, and sign the document. It should also bear a phrase to the effect of, “I certify that this is a true and accurate copy” above the signature.

Provisional Enrolment for International Students

We may grant you provisional enrolment, meaning you will need to complete further steps in order to be fully enrolled with us, but we are holding a place until you do so.

If you are an international student, you will also need to:

  • Provide evidence after provisional enrolment you have a current student visa; and
  • Provide evidence once you have arrived in New Zealand you have a current student permit; and
  • Provide evidence you have gained adequate travel and medical insurance. This can be made after enrolment but must be made prior to starting the course or travelling to New Zealand.

More information on student visas and permits can be found on our Student Visas and Permits page.

Additional Enrolment Requirements for International Students

If you are an international student, there are extra requirements you need to meet prior to starting a course with us. They include, but are not limited to:

  • Proving, where English is not your first language, you have the adequate skills in the language through test results, such as IELTS or TOEFL (see the Entry Requirements for further information).
  • Paying your full fees, not just the deposit, on enrolment
  • Gaining and continuing to hold approval from the Immigration New Zealand to study at the National School of Aesthetics by holding a valid, relevant student visa and permit
  • Holding adequate, current medical and travel insurance throughout your time studying with us.

More information on student visas and permits can be found on our Student Visas and Permits page.

More information on medical and travel insurance can be found on our Medical and Travel Insurance page.

Restricted Entry and Entry with Provisions

We reserve the right to restrict or limit entry to courses on the basis of resource constraints. Our selection criteria attempt to be as open-minded as possible; however, with TEC’s requirement of student achievement, we will attempt to only select students with the most promise of completing their chosen course of study successfully.

We also reserve the right to place provisions on enrolment. Examples of provisions may be:

  • Providing medical clearance in cases where a medical condition may be present.
  • Supplying any special needs or further instructions for students with learning disabilities from a medical or qualified practitioner.
  • Meeting the legal requirement to demonstrate residency or the right to study in New Zealand, including, but not limited to:
    • Demonstrating proof of residency class visa acceptance if the student does not hold a residency class visa at the time of application but will gain it in the near future.
    • Demonstrating proof of student visa and permit (or other acceptable visas and permits) if the international student does not hold the correct visa and permit at the time of application but will gain it in the near future.
  • Demonstrating proof of adequate travel and medical insurance for international students.

If you have a medical condition or learning disability and do not declare this to us in your application or interview with us, you could be seen to have misrepresented yourself. We have the right to either withdraw our offer of place (if you have not enrolled) or cancel your enrolment (if you have enrolled).

Confirmation of Enrolment

Once you have successfully completed enrolment, we will send or give you:

  • A letter confirming you are enrolled. This has your student ID number and orientation date and time on it; and
  • A photocopy of your enrolment form; and
  • A photocopy of your Public Trust form (where applicable).

Please keep these in a safe place as evidence of confirmation of enrolment.
