We do enrol students from overseas in to
our programmes, offering our international students full access
to the New Zealand Secondary curriculum. We have a full range of
courses in the Science, Mathematics, Languages, Social Sciences,
Technology, Arts and Physical Education faculties. International
students are assessed on arrival, and we provide them with special
additional English language classes if required.
All students can enter for the New Zealand
qualifications at Years 11, 12 and 13. This includes the University
Entrance qualification in Year 13.
Students who wish to enter the University
Entrance qualification must have very good English. We will enroll
students straight into Year 13 if their English is good. But we
recommend that students enter Kaipara College at Year 12 so that
they can become more fluent in English and familiar with the New
Zealand system. This will give them a strong background to be successful
in Year 13.
The College arranges home-stays for its
international students and monitors them carefully. Home-stays are
available in the town, on farms or at beaches.
The Tuition Fee for 2009 is $NZ 10,000 or $2500.00 per term.
This covers tuition and textbooks. It does not cover stationery,
uniform (approx $300.00), examination fees or materials. Homestays cost is approximately $NZ 180 per
week and there is a Homestay Administration Fee of $NZ 400 per annum.
Application Forms are available from the
school on request.
