Many of our qualifications can be studied anywhere in the world. If you have a good academic background or a strong desire to succeed, it is likely you will be able to study with us. Some qualifications have specific entry requirements that you need to be aware of before you enrol, you can find out about these on the individual qualification pages of our website.
We can accept international students who are in New Zealand on a valid work permit studying part-time and enrolling in a qualification authorised by their employer as part of their job. If the study is not work related a variation of conditions is required. We do not accept international students on a visitor visa or student visa. If you are an international student living in New Zealand, you must provide verified evidence of your right to study in New Zealand with your application for enrolment.
International students pay international fees. Please see the flow chart for more information on the application process.
As we teach in English, all students with English as a second language must meet English language proficiency criteria. Please check the programme and courses section for information.
If you have any questions regarding studying as an international student with Open Polytechnic, please contact the Academic Registrar.
