What we can study

All areas of professional trainings are allowed as long as they contribute to the development of the territory and are recognized as a priority by the territory (except accounting, law, education and medical for equivalence problems).

The maximum level of study allowed by the program is a maximum level 6 in the New Zealand system. You can consult the different types of training available in New Zealand (external link).

The main eligibility criteria

  • Be able to justify 1 to 2 years of professional experience (part-time, internship, volunteer work, etc.)

Recruitment Process

The application form will be submitted only after an English test is organized by the New Zealand Consulate and will depend on the level obtained (minimum IELTS equivalent of 5.0 required). Please contact us to find out about the next organized sessions.

Calendar

Applications are open all year round and several English test sessions will be organized in 2021 depending on the reopening of the programme. It takes a minimum of 3 months between the submission of the complete application (after confirmation of the level of English) and the actual departure to New Zealand (it will also depend on the training chosen in New Zealand).
