This interview process is an opportunity for us to learn more about you, hear about your interests, and understand your goals and aspirations for a New Zealand education.

Student Visa application
The student (or their representative) is required to apply for a New Zealand student visa. The on-line application submission process is the fastest and easiest method to obtain a student visa from Immigration New Zealand.
It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that he has a valid visa and permit to study at Auckland Grammar School. Students without a valid visa are not permitted to enroll or attend class until their visa has been approved.
Full details of visa and permit requirements are available at New Zealand Immigration Service.

If using an alternative insurance policy, a copy of the policy and fee receipt must be sighted and checked by Auckland Grammar School in advance to enable the student to enroll at the school. The policy must be fully comprehensive and include cover for travel, medical and fee protection.
