Enrolment will be on the prescribed Enrolment Application Form for International Students. Signing of this enrolment form implies a contract between parents and College that binds the student to follow the rules of Villa Maria College. Failure to comply with the school rules may lead to the expulsion of the student and forfeiture of the tuition fees. Under the Immigration Act, visitors to New Zealand holding a Student Permit are in fulltime study, and enrolled in a particular school. Students may not transfer school without obtaining a new permit.
All applications must be accompanied by:
- a certified copy of the latest available school report in English.
- a letter from the applicant, in English, giving information about herself, and why she wants to attend Villa Maria College.
- a copy of the applicant’s Baptism Certificate, and a letter, in English, from the student’s Parish Priest confirming that the applicant and her family are practising Catholics. This is not a requirement if the international student is not Catholic.
Enrolments must be approved by the Enrolment Committee of the Board of Trustees, on the recommendation of the Principal and/or Director of International Students.
