Studying in New Zealand

How do I decide on a tertiary pathway that aligns with my personal interests and aspirations?

No Major Drama helps you learn about majors for Bachelor degrees from across all eight New Zealand universities and rank them based on your skills and interests. No Major Drama is designed to help you answer what's likely to be one of the most important questions you'll face in your life: What should I 'major' (specialise) in at university?

Based on your skills and interests, No Major Drama lets you create your own personalised ranking of 181 major subject areas e.g. Accounting, Music, Zoology etc, representing 730 specific majors for Bachelor degrees from across all eight NZ universities.

What are the requirements for university entrance (UE) in New Zealand?

University Entrance (UE) is the minimum requirement to go to a New Zealand university. To find out what is required to achieve UE, NCEA students should check the NZQA website; IB Diploma Programme students should check the IBO university recognition tool.

How do I apply to study at a New Zealand university?

All applications to study at a New Zealand university must be made online directly to the university.

Where can I find a list of financial scholarships and how do I go about applying for them?

GivMe is New Zealand's primary source of funding information for students, researchers, sports people, artists and those wanting professional development. GivMe holds details of over 2200 funding schemes. GivMe is a searchable database - the database will give you the best matches of scholarships, awards and grants you are eligible for in terms of criteria, level of study and discipline along with closing dates, application requirements and contact details. Access to GivMe is FREE for Kristin students when connected to the Senior School Network.

Entrance scholarships, grants and prizes are also administered by each university. Most scholarships can only be applied for on-line. Please read the regulations for each scholarship. These are found on individual scholarship pages.

A student requiring a reference from the school in support of a scholarship application should contact their House Dean in the first instance. Requests for Official School Academic Transcripts in support of scholarship applications may be made directly to the Personal Assistant to the Senior School Principal.
