Entry Criteria and Enrolment

What qualifications and skills you need to enrol and how to enrol

We have compiled information for you with regards to our entry criteria and enrolment into courses.

Please note that if you are an international student, you will also need to read our International Students page.

Information available on this section of the site includes:

Enrolment Procedure

After reading over the information in our prospectus and the accompanying information on our Web site, you are more than welcome to apply for one of our programmes.

We have three stages to our student entry process:

  1. Application - your formal expression of interest in enrolling
  2. Interview - our setting out requirements and determining your eligibility to enrol
  3. Enrolment - you securing a place in the programme through a formal and legal contract

Stage 1: Your Application

Fill out the application form. Please note requirements may vary from programme to programme.

  • You must submit all information before we book an interview.
  • If we are not able to view your previous study on the NZQA Record of Learning Web site, you may need to submit proof of prior learning.
  • Please post, drop-in or courier your application to us.
  • We highly suggest you photocopy or scan your application and supporting information prior to sending it to us in case it gets lost in the post.
  • If you are applying for a professional development programme, and trained with us in the last 5 years or so, we may not need proof of learning or to interview you. We will confirm this with you.

If applying for a short professional development programme:

  • You only submit your application and proof of holding the pre-requisite qualification(s); and
  • If we approve your application, you can skip the interview and go directly to enrolment.
  • You will need to download and read the Student Handbook.

If you are an existing student wishing to enrol in another programme with us, you merely need to see Lyssa or Scott for enrolment documentation and skip to the enrolment stage.

Stage 2: Your Interview

The interview has four parts, all of which you must undertake:

Before the Interview

At the Interview

  • The tour of our campus (timetable permitting)
  • An individual interview between you and us

Our representatives evaluate whether you are suitable for the programme during the interview by assessing you against the programme requirements through both the interview and your submitted information.

Up to a week after your interview, we will notify you in writing if we are offering you a place in the programme. If we reject your application, we reserve the right not to reveal our reasons why.

Stage 3: Enrolment

Fill out the enrolment form and, if applicable, other accompanying forms. Please note requirements may vary from programme to programme.

You will need to enrol within two weeks (normal enrolment period) or as soon as possible (late enrolment period). We encourage you to enrol as soon as possible to avoid disappointment or if you need a specific place in your programme (if available).

If we offer you a place in the programme during the late enrolment period, we cannot guarantee a place is available, only that you meet our entry criteria.

If you complete the enrolment successfully, we will notify you in writing that we are holding a specific place for you in the programme. You should start attending the course on the first day. You must submit the information required to satisfy the enrolment requirements before we can accept you into the programme.

Once enrolment is completed, you will receive:

  • a letter confirming enrolment. This letter will include your ID number; and
  • a copy of your enrolment form. Please keep it in a safe place; and
  • a copy of your Public Trust application, if applicable.

Equal Opportunity Study Statement

We will be fair in all areas of study. We do not discriminate on the basis of colour, creed, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or cultural beliefs. Disability will be considered as long as it does not preclude you from performing your assigned tasks (and thereby qualifying) and does not endanger the health and safety of employees, other students and visitors. We are dedicated to helping students achieve and succeed and have referrals to appropriate support bodies and agencies if required to facilitate this.
