Supporting information and documents

Once you've decided what you'd like to study at UCOL, you may need to prepare some supporting information for your application. 

Application information

In addition to your contact details and personal information, the following are some of the questions you may be asked during the application process.

National Student Number (NSN)
All applicants will need a NSN to complete an application. If you don't have a NSN, you may request one from NZQA.

Secondary school education
You'll need to name the last secondary school/high school you attended, the dates and the highest level of achievement you hold.

Recent activity
You'll need to advise us "your main activity or occupation in New Zealand on the 1st October prior to the date of your programme starting". Essentially, we need to know what you've been doing in the months leading up to now, such as studying or working.

Disability details
UCOL provides a range of support services to help people with disabilities or issues that affect learning. To access this support, simply declare that you have a disability on your application.

Supporting documents

When applying online, you'll need to supply any applicable supporting documentation separately - in person, via email or post. Note that the documents required depend on the programme of study. Check the entry requirements to be sure.

A verified copy of your identification
You can supply a verified copy of your birth certificate, passport or Whakapapa statement.

Recognition of prior learning
If you have completed applicable study elsewhere, or have work experience that you'd like to be taken into account as recognition of prior learning, fill out the Recognition of Prior Learning Form to apply for cross credits, credit transfer and assessment of prior learning. Note that this may incur a fee.

Other documents
See the right-hand side of this page for additional documents you may require to complete your application.
