Contact the International Department

Our International Student office is open 8am - 4:30, Monday to Friday. Students can come into the international office before school, during interval, during lunch time or after school for help with homestay, visas and immigration, insurance, extending their study period, finding activities to do outside of school time, taking trips around New Zealand, or anything else they need help with. If students have questions or concerns about their academic choices, they can see the international deans.

To contact the international department, please call (+64 9) 477 0150 (press 1 for the international department) or email the relevant person using the contact details below.

New Zealand is one of the safest countries in the world, however, we have a free emergency number for our students to call outside office hours if they are in trouble. In an emergency only, please call 0800 563 263 to talk to one of our international staff members.
