How to enrol from overseas
Enrolling from overseas on any of ITC’s airline, travel or tourism courses is easy using this website. Applications from international students are accepted on all of our courses.
If you would like to enrol, the first thing you need to do is complete an International Student Enquiry Form. This will help us assess your eligibility for the college. Once you have submitted the form, our friendly team can help suggest the best course for you depending on your future career goals and past education or work experience.
Our international team will be able to help you through the application and enrolment process, and will send you an official offer letter should you be accepted on a course. We can also arrange a ‘meet and greet’ service if you do not have friends and family in New Zealand.
Below is an overview of our eligibility criteria.
English Requirements (IELTS)
All ITC courses are conducted in English. Prospective students must provide evidence of their English language levels as part of the enrolment process. The IELTS requirements are as below:
- Level 3 courses require a minimum of IELTS 5.0 (General or Academic) overall band, with no band score lower than 5.0
- Level 4 courses require a minimum of IELTS 5.5 (General or Academic) overall band, with no band score lower than 5.0
- Level 5 courses require a minimum of IELTS 5.5 (Academic) overall band, with no band score lower than 5.0
If you do not have an IELTS Certificate, you will need to provide other evidence of your English language proficiency. If you need help or advice in this area, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or view other acceptable tests here.
We also have some wonderful English Partner Schools here in New Zealand that can help you improve your English before coming to study at ITC. You may even be able to get one visa that covers both them and ITC with a special Pathway Student Visa!
Acceptance on an ITC course is subject to your successful application of a student visa. You can start the application process at the New Zealand Immigration service website.
Working and studying
When studying at ITC, many of our courses allow you to work part-time (20 hours per week) during your course and in certain situations you may be able to work full-time for 12 months after you have completed your course. These work rights can sometimes change, so it’s always best to chat to us about your goals and plans, so we can give you the best impartial advice at the time.
