Pathway Programme

NZLC Pathway & Pathway Student Visa

NZLC has an NZQA-approved English proficiency test that we can use to assess our students’ level and recommend them for direct entry into courses at Category 1 & 2 colleges and polytechnics in New Zealand. The NZLC Pathway Programme allows students to have direct entry to those institutions without having to take an IELTS test once they reach the required English level at NZLC and meet other entry conditions. NZLC has established pathways with many tertiary education providers.

NZLC can also organize pathway to many secondary and high schools in New Zealand.
