    Applicants who completed a 1-2 year Academic studies in the last two years at a recognised university (or similar institution) in English will not be required to provide evidence of English language skill and will be able to enter the program directly.

    Undergraduate Admission Criteria
    For admission into undergraduate studies applicants are required to be able to show they have achieved a similar university entrance level of education – that can include GCSE, A levels, or senior secondary Certificate of Education (Year 12) or the overseas equivalent.

    Graduate Admission Criteria
    Admission requirements vary from program to program, but at a minimum, applicants interested in Postgraduate studies are required to have a New Zealand Bachelor’s degree, or graduate diploma/graduate certificate from a recognised tertiary institution. Qualifications awarded outside New Zealand can also be used for admission but equivalencies and entry requirements are determined based on the country, institution, and qualification.

    For entry into a Doctorate program, students must have completed their Masters. Students must have the fundamental theoretical knowledge to carry out their independent studies. To determine a candidate’s suitability for PhD students


    Grading System:

    The common grading system used in New Zealand is the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) marking scheme. Universities generally have the system of awarding letter grades (A to D) to the students. The letter grades correspond to percentage mark bands, though these may differ between Institutions and Universities. Thus, thus, the grading measure might be imprecise and the New Zealand educational provider will assess applicants' GPAs based on the educational institution and country's previous studies and qualifications awarded.
