International Student Welfare

Student Welfare


Most of the primary and secondary school students who are not accompanied by their parents live in local host families, and each school has a special teacher who is responsible for arranging contact. All homestay families are charged a flat rate, about NZD 300/week. They will have their own room and three meals will be provided by the host family. Interacting with hosts and meeting neighbours and friends is a great way to improve your English and learn about New Zealand's lifestyle and culture.



The New Zealand Government requires all international students to have appropriate health and travel insurance during their studies. This will be done with the help of the school. Student insurance covers most of the medical expenses, etc. There are also discounts in services such as glasses.

Master and doctoral students can sponsor their spouse to apply for a work visa, and as long as the spouse enters the country with a work visa, their children can apply for a student visa to enter primary and secondary schools as local students.
