Make sure you do plenty of research into student exchanges before submitting your application. Our Application Checklist will help you decide whether a student exchange is right for you.
After you register your interest, we’ll send you the full application form. This is the most time-consuming part of the application process. Be prepared to go to your GP for a medical check-up and ask your school to complete some forms.
Come in and meet the NZIIU team. Be prepared for lots of questions, but don’t be scared! Your NZIIU coordinator will provide you with detailed information about your exchange and you can ask them lots of questions, too. Your interview is also the time to discuss scholarships if you’re applying for one.
If your application is successful, you will be notified within 1-2 weeks after your interview.
Congratulations! Your life-changing experience is about to begin. Your NZIIU coordinator will help you make all the necessary preparations for your exchange.
The big day is finally here. Your NZIIU coordinator will meet you at the airport to make sure you check-in without any problems and to give you last-minute tips and reminders.host
