Valid Medical and Travel Insurance
The New Zealand Government has made it a legal requirement that all international students are obligated under the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students (the 'Code') to have appropriate medical and travel insurance which covers the period of their study. The insurance must also cover your travel to New Zealand to study. It is Tasman's responsibility under the Code to ensure all international students have appropriate health and travel insurance. Tasman will not complete your enrolment without it.
Under the Code of Practice Tasman are permitted to enrol students 18 years old or over for all courses. For English language courses, Tasman are allowed to accept students 14 years old or over but you must either live with your parents, or have a caregiver or guardian designated by your parents. For all students under 18- years old Tasman has policies and procedures in place to ensure care for under-18's is compliant with the Code.
You will need to fill in a Tasman International Academies application form and give us your details, for example, your passport number, visa or permit details, emergency contact person, your address and your telephone number.
We will need a copy of your latest academic record and a test result showing your English language proficiency level for all non-language courses. If you do not have these and you are applying for General English or IELTS courses, you will need to do our internal placement test.
