Application Process

If you are interested in enrolling at Otago Boys’ High School please read the International Students’Application Information Pack and complete the International Student Application Form.

With the application please enclose:

  • A certified copy in English of your most recent school report.
  • Results of any public examinations you have recently completed.
  • A hand written letter about yourself, your family and why you would like to come to New Zealand. ( 150 words minimum please)

If your application is successful, you will be sent an invoice and a conditional offer of place.

Transfer the fees to the school bank account as seen on the invoice and notify the school when this has been done.

Once the funds have been received, you will be sent a receipt and an unconditional offer of place. These two documents are both needed to obtain a student visa.

PLEASE NOTE: 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.

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.
