International Students


Avonside has places available for international students in Years 9 -13. Students will be accepted for periods from 1 term or longer and usually start in Term 1, 2 or 3.

A student may choose her courses from different levels.


Coming to a new country is exciting, but often confusing.  At Avonside there are always people who will help with problems that arise.

  • The International Director is responsible for the students' admission, academic work and general welfare at school.
  • The Homestay Co-ordinator will arrange the students' board, meet her at the airport, help with uniform and supervise her general welfare while she is in New Zealand.

An orientation programme will help students adjust to their new school.


Our International Programme adheres to the Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice,2016.  Full information can be found here.
