UCOL is home to many international students seeking to attain an internationally recognised qualification and work experience while they study.
international student support staff are experienced in looking after the needs of international students and follow the New Zealand Government Code of Practice for pastoral care. We provide information and advice about living in New Zealand and studying at UCOL.
Recent graduates rated UCOL highly in the 2017 International Student Barometer survey funded by Education New Zealand and participated in by all New Zealand institutes of technology and polytechnics. Small class sizes, teaching, and accommodation and living costs were scored favourably. To find out more, see
