International students – why study at SPCNM?

SPCNM pride ourselves on our care of our students, making us the best choice for International Students. We are an NZQA Category One provider, offering excellent programmes that are well-designed and well-delivered. Our campus is centrally located in Ellerslie, Auckland close to the motorway and public transport.

Immigration NZ requires international students who intend studying on-campus in New Zealand to be enrolled full time.

We are currently applying to NZQA to deliver the first two years of the degree online to International students. Please note that if our application is successful, students must all attend their third clinical year in person, on-campus.

For general information please refer to our Bachelor of Natural Medicine brochure and other information on this website. Please contact Enrolment and Student Progression for further information.

You can also download the Guidelines for international Students which contains information about the enrolment process, our programmes and other information about studying in New Zealand.

If English is not your first language or you have not completed study in English, we may require you to submit IELTS or TOEFL test results (not more than two years old) or complete an IELTS test to show language proficiency at level 6.5 with no band score under 6.0.

All students in New Zealand are protected by the Education (Pastoral care of Tertiary and International Learners) Code of Practice 2021 that outlines our responsibilities in supporting you in your studies and time in NZ.

NZQA stated in our recent evaluation that SPCNM “students receive exemplary support and are passionate and engaged in their learning”.
