School and government support

We have been hosting international students at Avondale College for over 20 years. All school staff are involved in making our students’ experience as positive and beneficial as possible.

Students are placed into a Year Level homeroom class, each of which has a Dean and Assistant Dean to support them. Counsellors are available for students who need confidential advice.

Immigration and Insurance


IMMIGRATION
Full details of immigration requirements, advice on rights to employment in New Zealand while studying, and reporting requirements are available from Immigration New Zealand, and can be viewed on their website at  www.immigration.govt.nz.

ELIGIBILITY FOR HEALTH SERVICES
Most international students are not entitled to publicly funded health services while in New Zealand. If you receive medical treatment during your visit, you may be liable for the full costs of that treatment. Full details on entitlements to publicly funded health services are available through the Ministry of Health, and can be viewed on their website at www.moh.govt.nz.

ACCIDENT INSURANCE
The Accident Compensation Corporation provides accident insurance for all New Zealand citizens, residents, and tem-porary visitors to New Zealand, but you may still be liable for all other medical and related costs. Further information can be viewed on the ACC website at www.acc.co.nz.

MEDICAL AND TRAVEL INSURANCE
International students (including group students) must have appropriate and current medical and travel insurance while in New Zealand.

Emergency support

All students and homestay families are provided with 24/7 contact details of our Homestay Co-ordinators. Our emergency number is 021 417 337.
