NCEA

NCEA

Secondary education runs from Year 9 (around 12-14 years old) up to Year 13 (around 16-18 years old). Students generally work towards the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) when they begin level 1 in Year 11 and work through to level 3 in Year 13. NCEA levels 1, 2 and 3 are on the first 3 levels of the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF). At each level of the NZQF, students pass by achieving a number of credits.
There are a wide range of subjects available in the NCEA system, and a student can choose which subjects to take based on what is offered in the school, their strengths and interests, and what they wish to study at university.

Pathway to University

University Entrance (UE) is the minimum requirement to proceed directly from a New Zealand secondary school to a New Zealand university. To be awarded UE, a student needs to attain NCEA Level 3, with a minimum of 14 credits at Level 3 in each of 3 UE-approved subjects. Students will also need to have achieved a certain number of literacy and numeracy credits

Daily School Life

Daily School Life

As a school student your day will probably begin around 7am for breakfast. like most New Zealanders on week days. Then the school starts at around 8:30 am, has a lunch break in the middle of the day, and finishes at about 3pm.

After school you’ll probably spend time with your friends, or with people at home, before dinner at around 6pm, followed by your nightly routine, which may include friendly chit chat or watching a bit of television, as well as some study.

On the weekends you’ll have more time relaxing and socialising after the busy school week.

You’re most likely to be a homestay student or live in rental premises when you travel to New Zealand to study. The majority of internasional students are  accommodated in these arrangements.It’s likely to cost  you a bit more than $300 per week all up for food , accommodation and the other necessities of life while you study, but you won’t have to do a huge amount housework to live decently.
