The main condition to study in a New Zealand University, is to posses an Intermediate degree of English Language fluency, usually the equivalent of a result 6.0 in the IELTS test, or 7.0 if the course chosen is Law. Each University determines its own requirements for the courses, and also it depends on the number of places that course or that University has available to International Students.

Some other requirements for acceptance includes the termination of a secondary course with good results. These results must include the number of hours you studied each subject, translated into English to be evaluated by the New Zealand University. As an example, a certain course may ask an "C" (equivalent) result, in other hand, the course of Odontology in the University of Dunedin can have an "A" or even an "A+" to accept admissions.

For Post Graduation Courses besides the English skills, the Student will have to demonstrate relevant results and conclusion of a Bachelor course and/or work experience in the chosen field. Note that not all courses and disciplines you studied may be recognized and in some stances the student may be asked to study those subjects.

There are many other ways to study in a New Zealand University.  The most common ways are:

  • Finish successfully a Secondary Course in a New Zealand School. OR 

  • Do a "Foundation Course", with duration of one year. (Most Universities in New Zealand offer Foundation Courses in their own Campuses).

  • You are already studying in a tertiary Institution in your Country and wish to finish your course in New Zealand - In this case the subjects of you prior studies must be accepted by the New Zealand Institution or you will have to study extra subjects to compensate.

  • You are studding in a Polytechnic Institution in New Zealand and after the second year you may enter to the University to complement with a Bachelor Degree.

Note: if you already have a Bachelor Degree or Higher graduation, the NZQA (New Zealand Qualification Authority is the governmental organism to recognise if all subject you've studied or/and had practical experience in the past are in accordance with the New Zealand Tertiary Curriculum. You may submit to them, pay a fee, and wait the response to know if your qualifications are fully accepted in New Zealand or if you will need to study some more topics to get in accordance with the requirements.

There are big differences from New Zealand Universities and the main one is that not all University provide all courses, for example, each University works on a certain specialization, so, if you want to study IT or Science, The University of Waikato is the most specialised one, If you want to study Medicine or Health Sciences, the Otago University is the right one. It doesn't means that you can't find any other IT course in other New Zealand University, but the system is more or less distributed by specialization. Most New Zealand Universities are owned by the Government and are not free to International Students despite the fact some scholarships are offered to countries New Zealand has agreements.
