International Students at Long Bay College
Each year the International Department at Long Bay College welcomes international students from over 18 different countries. There is an experienced team of international staff who are committed to ensuring that the international students academic and pastoral needs are met.

International students are able to commence their studies at any time during the academic year. However, our two main start dates are January and July. There are orientation activities for new students.

During their first week at school all international students do ESOL (English Speaking for Other Languages) tests to determine their level of English ability and also meet with the International Dean to discuss their preferred subjects and receive an individual timetable. International students enjoy the full range of academic, sporting and cultural activities available to all students at Long Bay College and are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular activities such as sports, music and the arts. For a small fee international students can join the school gym, receive Music tuition in a range of instruments and participate in many of the ‘after school’ sporting clubs and activities. Please contact us with any queries.

Long Bay College has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International students published by the New Zealand Ministry of Education. Copies of the Code are available on request from this institution or from the New Zealand Ministry of Education website.
