International Enrolments Overview
An International Student is deemed to be a student who is not a permanent resident of New Zealand or is a dependent of a person who does not hold a permit to work in New Zealand.
Countries with NZ Citizenship are Australia, Cook Island, Chatham Islands, Kermadec Island, Niue and Tokalau.
What is the cost of tuition?
For information on our International Student School Fee please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
This fee is inclusive of English tuition, stationery and any incidental costs associated with the School Programmes.
What are the application requirements?
Matua School is able to offer placements for a number of International Students preferably to a maximum of one per class.
Each enrolment application will be considered on an individual basis, taking into account the school’s existing student demand, class sizes and available resources.
- All International Students, whether previously enrolled at another school or not, must hold a student permit to attend Matua School. A student permit is particular to that student and that school.
- Each International Student needs to apply for a specific permit to be educated at Matua School. Matua School must be named on the student permit.
What student details do we need to provide?
Matua School must be provided with the personal details, full name, current address and telephone number, and accommodation situation of the student.
Enrolment is subject to the parent living and continuing to live with the student in New Zealand.
Should a student be found not living with a parent, the school is required to notify the Immigration Service and the student permit may be revoked.
Passports will be checked for immigration status (a photocopy of the passport, visa and permit will also be taken).
What is the enrolment procedure?
- Enrolment form completed and passport checked
- Verification of address, accommodation and parents’ details (a birth certificate in English will be required)
- Verbal confirmation that a place is available
- Relevant school fees paid and receipt issued by the school
- The school will provide a letter to be forwarded to the Immigration Department of New Zealand with the offer of a place at Matua School
- Parents / students must provide additional information as requested by the Immigration Department of New Zealand
- As soon as passports have been stamped and the student permit has been issued with the relevant details, students may complete enrolment at Matua School
- All International Students are required to hold current medical and travel insurance. It is the responsibility of the student and/or their caregivers to ensure this insurance is in place and to provide the school with a copy of the current policy
What are the conditions on acceptance?
It is Matua School’s policy that it will only enrol International Students who live with their parents.
Under what conditions could refunds be provided?
When an International Student withdraws from enrolment within the year, a refund of fees may be applied for in exceptional circumstances (eg; family death, serious accident or illness).
If the application is made before the start of the course:
- Fees will be refunded in full, less the Administration Fee. This includes if a student is not granted a student permit to attend Matua School
If the application is made after the start of the course (i.e. in Terms 1 or 2), but before the second half of the course (i.e. Terms 3 & 4):
Fees will be refunded less:
- The Administration Fee (as noted above)
- Costs to the school already incurred for tuition
- Components of the fee already committed for the duration of the course
- Appropriate proportions of salaries for teachers and support staff (if applicable)
- Costs already incurred for the use of facilities and resources
- The proportion of the Government Levy the school is required to pay
- Any other costs already incurred.
If the application is made after the second half of a course:
- There will be no refund, except under exceptional circumstances – to be determined by the Board of Trustees.
Do you provide fee protection?
Matua School Board of Trustees guarantees to keep sufficient funds in reserve to enable a refund of the unused portion of fees should the school be unable to continue the course.
Under what circumstances might tuition be terminated?
Tuition may be terminated if the International Student is in breach of the school rules, as outlined in the Whole School Behaviour Management Plan.
Is Matua School bound by a Code of Practice?
Matua School has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students 2016 published by NZQA. Copies of the Code are available on request from this institution or from the NZ Qualifications Authority Website; www.nzqa.nz
A copy of the 2018 ERO report can be found here.
Do we require Medical Insurance?
Eligibility for publicly funded personal health and disability services in New Zealand is restricted to New Zealand citizens.
Student permit holders and those on visitor permits are not eligible for publicly funded health services regardless of their length of stay in New Zealand.
All foreign visitors to New Zealand and student permit holders irrespective of their length of stay, visa status or nationality must have cover for injuries.
Full details on entitlements to publicly funded health services are available through the Ministry of Health and can be reviewed on their website at; www.moh.govt.nz.
Recent changes to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students (the Code) require all International Students to have compulsory medical and travel insurance for the duration of their planned period of study.
Matua School needs to sight the current medical insurance policy of every International Student upon enrolment.
Where can we get Immigration advice?
Full details of visa and permit requirement, advice on rights to employment in New Zealand while studying, and reporting requirements are available through the New Zealand Immigration Service, and can be viewed on their website; www.immigration.govt.nz
Do you provide a tour of the school?
Prior to admission at Matua School the student and family will be introduced to the Principal, Senior staff and the class teacher. They will be given a short tour of the school and a general briefing about school and class organisation and routines. The class teacher will allocate a buddy for the student.
What are the class attendance requirements?
Children are required to attend school whenever it is open. To enable us to monitor attendance and ensure children are accounted for during these hours certain procedures must be followed:
- Parents must notify the school on or before the day of absence. The school telephone number is 07 576-9027
- The teacher will record the absence in the class absentee file by 9:15 am daily.
- If the school has not been notified of the absence, contact will be made with the family for an explanation.
- Where a pattern of irregular, unjustified and/or unexplained attendance becomes apparent the Principal or appropriate senior personnel will follow up. Further actions would be taken as deemed necessary following recommended guidelines (MOE).
- If an International Student is absent from school for 20 consecutive days, he/she will be taken off the roll and the Immigration Service will be notified.
What about school uniform, meals and school trips?
- Matua School has a school uniform and the International Student will be required to purchase this uniform at their own cost.
- Students will need to bring their own morning tea and lunch each day.
- School trips within the school curriculum will be covered by the tuition fee but any other activities and any out of school activities will need to be paid for separately.
What is the grievance procedure?
SUMMARY CODE OF PRACTICE FOR THE PASTORAL CARE OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
When students from other countries come to study in New Zealand, it is important that those students are well informed, safe and properly cared for. New Zealand educational providers have an important responsibility for international students’ welfare.
This pamphlet provides an overview of the “Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students” (the Code), and provides a procedure that students can follow if they have concerns about their treatment by a New Zealand educational provider or agent of a provider.
What is the Code?
The Code is a document providing a framework for service delivery by educational providers and their agents to international students. The Code sets out the minimum standards of advice and care that are expected of educational providers with respect to international students. The Code applies to pastoral care and provision of information only, and not to academic standards.
Who does the Code apply to?
The Code applies to all education providers in New Zealand with International Students enrolled. The Code is mandatory to these providers and must be signed by them.
What is an “international student”?
An “international student” is a foreign student studying in New Zealand.
How can I get a copy of the Code?
You can download a copy of the Code from the NZ Qualifications Authority website at www.nzqa.govt.nz
A Summary of the Code of Practice for International Students.
The Code sets standards for educational providers to ensure that:
- High professional standards are maintained

- Information supplied to international students is comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date
- Students are provided with information prior to entering into any commitments
- Contractual dealings with international students are conducted in an ethical and responsible manner
- The particular needs of the international students are recognised
- International students under the age of 18 are in safe accommodation
