Additional Requirements for Overseas Students 

Student Visa Requirements
Students who are not New Zealand residents or Australian citizens need to obtain a student visa to study in New Zealand. We are currently applying for NZQA approval for our course to allow for overseas students to apply for a student visa for a period longer than 3 months.

In order to obtain a student visa for New Zealand, you will need to contact New Zealand Immigration Services for an application form. On acceptance of your application to attend the Issachar Ministry Training Course, and receipt of your full tuition fees, we will provide you with a letter confirming your place on the course. This is needed for the issuing of your visa. Processing of your student visa may take up to two months depending on the country in which the application is made. Please ensure that you apply in plenty of time. Please see http://www.immigration.govt.nz/ for more information.

English Language Requirements
All lectures for the Issachar Ministry Training Course are in English. A reasonable standard of both spoken and written English is required (an IELTS score of at least 5.5, or a similarly recognised standard).
