International Student Orientation gives you the information and support you need to settle quickly and easily into life and study in New Zealand.
All new international students must attend International Student Orientation.
Please plan to arrive in New Zealand a few days before Orientation so you have time to settle and rest before your first days at Whitireia or WelTec. Your Offer of Place includes your Orientation dates.
Arriving early also gives you the opportunity to attend the Orientation for your programme of study, as well as International Student Orientation.
You will also receive your student ID card during Orientation. Please bring your passport and eVisa because your enrolment cannot be completed until we have seen your eVisa.
