“The St Andrew’s College International Programme is an opportunity for young men and women to embrace a dynamic secondary school, enriched in culture, tradition and excellence. With modern facilities in which to study and board, students are given every opportunity to learn, perform and achieve success.”
Palē Tauti, Director International and Exchange Students

International students are warmly welcomed into the busy, vibrant and close-knit community at St Andrew’s College, where they enjoy a world-class education, in a safe, supportive environment. We are proud of our International programme, which celebrates all nationalities and encompasses students from more than 20 countries.

International students learn from a rich and balanced curriculum at St Andrew’s and have the opportunity to take part in an exciting mix of sporting, cultural, service and leadership activities. During their stay, they are immersed in the unique New Zealand culture, and also experience the sights, sounds and traditions of our Scottish Presbyterian forefathers at many special events throughout the year. We encourage international students to participate in as many activities as possible alongside their studies, to create fulfilling and lasting memories.

Our New Zealand (Kiwi) students are always ready to welcome international students and learn about their culture and life experiences, as they share their own. International students also make new friends from across the globe with whom to share this unforgettable life experience. International students leave St Andrew’s as well-rounded young adults, who are prepared for higher education, exciting career opportunities, and life in today’s world.
