WHAT DO I PUT IN THE APPLICATION?

You need to fill out an application form containing basic facts about yourself.  (If you are not a NZ or Australian citizen, or do not have NZ residence, you will need to fill out the pink application form for international students.)  The application form specifically asks you to supply some additional information on separate sheets. You should also attach any additional material that will strengthen your chance of acceptance into the programme.  What you include is up to you but here are some suggestions:

  • cultural, sporting and recreational interests that demonstrate your commitment to success or show that you have additional skills that would be useful in teaching
  • experience with children and young people such as youth leadership in clubs
  • teaching experience such as university tutoring or private tutoring of school students
  • prizes, awards and scholarships you have won, and any research experience

If you are waiting for university results to confirm that your degree is completed you should explain this because these subjects will not appear on your academic transcript.  Please attach a current passport-sized photograph of yourself to the bottom right corner of the application form. It does not have to be an actual passport photo – you are allowed to smile!
