Ashburton College (College) accepts applications directly from prospective students, or from its registered education agents with whom it has a formal agreement of representation with Ashburton College.

We realise that applying for a student visa and moving to a new country can seem overwhelming.  Ashburton College has developed a network of reputable agents throughout the world.

Agents can supply you with brochures and further information about Ashburton College.  They will also assist you to understand NZ Government regulations, the Visa application process and provide you with information about Ashburton College and New Zealand.
