you will need to:
  • Have an offer of a place from a New Zealand education provider;
  • Meet the health and character requirements;
  • Give evidence of enough funds to support yourself (NZ$10,000 per year approximately);
  • Provide proof that you plan to leave New Zealand when you have finished your course of study;
