Accommodation Arrangements

Students who have their homestay arranged through Prime, will be met by their homestay parents at the school after arriving from the airport and on

completion of the initial enrolment procedures. We visit and interview every homestay family to ensure that you are in a safe, caring and friendly environment during

your stay in New Zealand. We also arrange a police check on all homestay families to ensure they are of good character. Breakfast and dinner are provided at your

homestay from Monday to Friday and all meals are provided on the weekends. Other types of accommodation are available including hostels and flats. Please ask as

we can advise and help you.

Airport Pick up

If you have requested our pick up service, you will be met at the airport by one of our representatives who will be holding a sign with your name

on it. You will then be driven directly to your homestay or school.

Native Language Advisors

We have staff available who speak several Asian and European languages.

Tertiary and Secondary Studies advising and Placements

Many of our students sit the IELTS test (International English Language Testing System) and continue their studies at a New Zealand university. We have

very close links with a number of high schools, colleges and universities here in New Zealand and overseas. We assist students in the application process and give

advice to help them make the right decisions.

Assistance with Visas and Immigration Matters

We provide you with full assistance with your visa application.


International students must have medical and travel insurance while studying in New Zealand. We can arrange insurance upon request.

Assistance with Bank Accounts

We assist you to open a bank account in New Zealand.

Guardians (for students under 18)

Students under the age of 18 are required to have a guardian whilst studying in New Zealand, and the parents must formally approve in writing the

chosen guardian. The guardian must have a formal ‘police vetting’ and must be accessible to the student by phone at all times. Ultimately, the guardian will be

responsible for the health, welfare and safety of the student in his/her care.

First Day Support

On your first day at school you will attend an orientation programme, where we will introduce you to your counsellors and explain school procedures and rules,

as well as information about Auckland and living in New Zealand.

Friday Activities

We organise social activities inside and outside the school. This programme enables the students to enjoy their experience in New Zealand and to share their

cultures with other students.
