With the application please enclose:
If your application is successful, you will be sent an Offer of Place and invoice.

Once the funds have been received, you will be sent a receipt. The Offer of Place and the receipt for payment need to be submitted as part of a student visa application.
Otago Boys’ High School is a participant in the Pathway Student Visa Scheme. Students who meet the criteria may be able to obtain a student visa for the full length of their enrolment (if enrolling for more than one year, up to five years in total).
All international students require medical & travel insurance to cover the entire length of their study period in New Zealand. This is part of the requirements set out by New Zealand’s Code of Practice.
Otago Boys’ High School uses a reputable insurance company called Uni-Care. Please check the website for full details. www.uni-care.org
If you want to use a different insurance provider, you need to give the school a copy of the policy in English so that the school can check that this meets the requirements of the Code of Practice.
OBHS offers a choice of homestay with a local family or boarding at OBHS House. Places are limited in OBHS House so please make an enquiry about availability of places.
For homestay please make application at the same time as you make an academic application for study.
If you are staying with a designated caregiver, please advise and we will provide a separate agreement form for this purpose.
