The Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016 (including Amendments 2019)

WITT observes and is bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students.

When students from other countries come to study in New Zealand, it is important that those students are well informed, safe and properly cared for:

New Zealand educational providers have an important responsibility for international students’ welfare.

The “Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016 (including Amendments 2019)” (the Code) provides a procedure that students can follow if they have concerns about their treatment by a New Zealand educational provider or agent of a provider.

What is the Code of Practice?

The Code of Practice is a document that clearly outlines the full legal requirements that education providers enrolling international students must abide by.

The purpose of this code is to support the Governement's objectives for international education by:

Requiring signatories to take all reasonable steps to protect international students; and ensuring, so far as is possible, that international students have in New Zealand a positive experience that supports their educational achievement.


Full details of what is covered can be found in the Code itself.
