Code of Practice for International Students
New Zealand Career College has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. Copies of the Code are available from the NZQA website at www.nzqa.govt.nz

If you receive medical treatment during your visit, you may be liable for the full costs of that treatment. Full details on entitlements to publicly funded health services are available through the Ministry of Health, and can be viewed on their website at www.moh.govt.nz
The Accident Compensation Corporation provides accident insurance for all New Zealand citizens, residents, and temporary visitors to New Zealand, but you may still be liable for all other medical and related costs. Further information can be viewed on the ACC website at www.acc.co.nz
MEDICAL AND TRAVEL INSURANCE

Student Support Models
At NZCC we believe student well-being is a key factor in encouraging academic success. We work towards students achieving future goals and achievements through building strong support networks for our students. Campus Managers are the first point of contact for a student applying to study at NZCC and Campus Managers keep contact with students throughout their learning journey. This student support flows through our Quality Management System and is reflected in our enrolment procedure and support and guidance processes, which are utilised to identify past or present student issues, future goals and to discuss any future problematic circumstances that may arise.
NZCC contracts trained and experienced counsellors to respond to the needs of students across its campuses. NZCC also employs Support and Academic Staff with specific experience in student pastoral care and best education practices.
During studies, opportunities sometimes arise for students to gain part-time employment from various industries that NZCC has networks with.
Students will be notified of any relevant employment opportunities on the campus notice board. For other job opportunities you can use the job search websites below:
Each class will select a student representative at the start of the semester to represent the views of their class. These representatives will meet when required with the Campus Manager or other nominee to discuss any issues and concerns, as well as team building events and activities during the academic year. Most concerns will be settled with the Campus Manager and feedback from these meetings will be passed on to NZCC Head Office for any action or response where appropriate. Student representatives may be called upon to represent student views for relevant meetings and represent the student body during education reviews at NZCC.
Student Advocates perform an important voluntary role within the student body, offering guidance, support and assistance from a position of understanding for their fellow students. Management at each campus will select from within the student representatives one student to be the campus student advocate. If you are elected to be the class student representative and you think you have what it takes to support your fellow students, please enquire with your Campus Manager about becoming a student advocate.
Student Advocates will assist with problem solving a range of issues including:
