11. English language requirement
Evidence of English language ability can be a very good indicator of how the student will manage the requirements of a New Zealand course that is taught in English medium. They strongly recommend that IELTS certificate is provided with the student visa application.
New Zealand Education Providers will have their own English language requirements for an offer of place depending on the course you enroll in.
If an IELTS result is available, it is considered as conclusive evidence of student’s English language ability and considered against the course entry requirement. We have to be satisfied that the student meets the entry requirement for the course they enroll in.
They do not consider TOEFL results in isolation as conclusive evidence of English Language ability, as they are unable to be readily verifiable. They strongly recommend that if a student is to undertake a test they should undertake the IELTS test so that their level of English is clearly measured against the course requirement.

You will have to apply for and meet the requirements for a further student visa in New Zealand. However, if the course duration is less than 1 year or 1 year, then the student visas will be issued for the duration of the course.
15. Bona fides:
As well as meeting all mandatory requirements for lodging your application for a temporary entry visa, you will need to demonstrate that you are ‘bona fide’ and that you intend a genuine temporary stay in New Zealand for a lawful purpose.
