Full Degree Application Process
Study New Zealand has outlined the steps for completing the full degree application process below. The application for admission at each overseas university is slightly different.
Step #1: Create a Study New Zealand Virtual Application
In order to better assist you, we ask that you complete the Study New Zealand Virtual Application. Please complete the following sections and submit your Virtual Application to Study New Zealand.
Within the Personal Statement section, please write in the overseas university you wish to attend, the type of degree you wish to earn, and the course name and/or description as it is listed on each university's online course guide.
Apply for the full degree program. Do a Quick Search for your program by entering either of the following:
Undergraduate Full Degree
Graduate Full Degree
Within 1 - 2 business days, Study New Zealand will contact you regarding your program of interest and give you more information.
Step #2 - Host University Application
Once you have completed your Study New Zealand Virtual Application and have chosen your specific full degree program, Study New Zealand will send you information and instructions on completing the application for your chosen degree. Once you have completed the application form and the supplement application items, mail the entire completed application to Study New Zealand. Study New Zealand will then send your application to your chosen host university free of charge.

Step #3 - Submit Supporting Documents
You will be required to submit transcripts from all high school coursework for undergraduate degree applicants, and transcripts from university coursework for all transferring undergraduate and graduate degree applicants. Study New Zealand urges you to request transcripts early, as these can take a lengthy amount of time to obtain.
Standardized Test Scores
SAT or ACT - Required for all students applying for an undergraduate program who have not completed 30 college credits.
MCAT - Required for all graduate entry medical programs.
GMAT - Required for some graduate Business programs.
LSAT - Required for the University of Melbourne JD program.
GRE - Required for just a few programs.
Copy of Passport
Please make a clear copy of the first page of your passport and include it with the other application materials. A faxed copy of your passport is ususally not legible and will not be accepted by an overseas university. If you do not have a passport or your passport has expired, please apply for a new passport as soon as possible as it takes up to 8 weeks to receive a passport. See - ordering and renewing a passport.
Syllabi of Previous Coursework
If you are planning to transfer to an overseas university to complete a degree, you are required to submit copies of syllabi of all coursework you have completed at the college level.
