We look forward to welcoming you as a preferred partner.

We take seriously your role as an international student recruitment agent and request that you do too.

By helping students learn about us and the opportunities which we offer in Nelson, Marlborough and Auckland, you play an important part matching suitable applicants with our relevant programmes.

If you represent an agency with a solid track record in the provision of international students to tertiary organisations, then we are keen to hear from you.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions before you apply.

What you will need

This form requires you to provide information about your agency, your recruitment history and contact details for three New Zealand based tertiary education providers as your referees.

Our process

Step 1 - Complete and submit the application form below - it should take no more than 5 minutes if you have the information ready.

Step 2 - We will review your application, conduct reference and immigration checks and then send you an agreement if we choose to proceed.

Step 3 - Sign and return your agreement.

Step 4 - We will send you a formal Agent Agreement and Certificate. 

Please be aware that you must adhere to the New Zealand Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students (external link) and counsel your students appropriately.

Your contact details


Please note: We are currently not seeking any further representation in Sri Lanka. We will reassess the situation again in January 2018. Thank you for your interest.

We like to know a little more about your history with other New Zealand tertiary organisations before we can approve your application.

To help us with this, please provide the contact details for three New Zealand based Institutes of Technology or Polytechnics for which you have provided international student recruitment.
