As a signatory to the Code of Practise for the Pastoral Care of International Students, Orewa Beach School welcomes International Students into our high-standard learning programmes. All International students are accommodated in a mainstream class where they receive extra in-class support.

All international students must live with a parent in New Zealand to study at Orewa Beach School.

Full details of visa and permit requirements, advice on rights to employment in New Zealand while studying and reporting requirements are available through the New Zealand Immigration Service, and can be viewed on their website at www.immigration.govt.nz


Health & Travel

Most students are not entitled to publicly funded health services while in New Zealand. We require that all International Students have insurance that will cover the cost of medical treatment for the duration of their stay in New Zealand. Travel Insurance is also required to cover travel to and from New Zealand. It is recommended that this be taken out in New Zealand. Proof of Medical Insurance cover must be sighted by the school prior to commencement of study. For students wishing to study at Orewa Beach School, the school can arrange health insurance at a competitive rate.
