What you need to apply
Once you’ve narrowed down your options or have chosen where you’d like to study, it’s time to get started on your application. Most applications can be done online on your chosen provider’s website. You’ll usually need:
- your academic results.
- an email address for your application.
- your National Student Number (NSN) or other similar codes.
- photo ID.
- proof of citizenship or residence.
- in some cases, supporting material such as a portfolio or audition.
If you’re asked to provide certified copies of any documents, you can usually get documents certified by a Justice of the Peace (JP). There should be a JP near where you live and their services are free.
It’s also a good idea to get a copy of your New Zealand Record of Achievement (NZRoA). This is an official record of all qualifications and standards you have achieved (including NCEA), and it can come in handy for future course and job applications.
