Admission Requirements

Southern Institute of Technology IELTS Waiver

Applications without IELTS as per NZQA Guidelines

The Rules only apply to those international students whose first language is not English – what constitutes a person’s first language? The English proficiency requirements do not apply to international students whose first language is English.

NZQA allows institutions to treat English as the first language, or one of the first languages, of an international student provided they have evidence that the student has either:

  1. Completed all primary education and at least 3 years of secondary education (that is, the equivalent of New Zealand Forms 3 to 5 or years 9 to 11) at schools using English as the language of instruction;
  2. Completed at least 5 years of secondary education (that is, the equivalent of New Zealand Forms 3 to 7 or years 9 to 13) at schools using English as the language of instruction.

Southern Institute of Technology SIT will require a current Academic IELTS result that meets the entry criteria for the programme they would like to enrol into, or a letter from their school/s stating that their schooling was conducted in English medium as stipulated above, on letterhead .

So students can apply without IELTS.

This is in accordance with NZQA guidelines for a Category 1 provider.

Please Note — Current NZQA policy does not provide for IELTS waiver on the basis of any marks from any school education board.
