Before you arrive
When you’re going to study in another country, you’re bound to have lots of questions about everyday life.
You might have questions like these:
- Where am I going to live?
- How do I get from the airport to my new home?
- Can I buy the kind of food I'm used to?
- How do I get around Auckland?
- How do I open a bank account?
- Am I allowed to drive?
- Where can I worship?
For the answers to these questions, see Living and studying in Auckland.
Once you’ve decided when you're going and which programmes to study, there is a lot to organise and prepare.
You must return these to the University:
- Acceptance of your offer online.
- ‘Next of kin’ form.
- Online accommodation application form and deposit, if you are applying for University accommodation.
You must arrange these:
- Student visa.
- Health and travel insurance is automatically included in your fees and covers you from the moment you leave your home country.
- Flights to Auckland.
- Your free airport pick up, if you’re a new international student.
- Read the International orientation programme.
