The purpose of the award is to acknowledge students who have completed the progress from English to Academic Studies and join a mainstream academic programme immediately after completion of the appropriate NZCEL and Academic English level.
Students who complete NZCEL and Academic English and achieve the entry criteria for their selected academic programme of study are credited the one-time award from their first-year programme fee, a saving of $4,500.00 for NZCEL or $4,100 for Academic English on their academic programme fees.
*Once the student meets the entry requirements for the mainstream programme, they receive an Offer of Place that lists the programme fee less the English Award.
