International Applicants

Trainees in the Full-Time Training in Hamilton receive a Diploma of Biblical Studies when they complete the two year training. This is a nationally recognized qualification and the Training Centre is registered as a Private Training Establishment to teach it.

The training dates are from February to July for the first semester, and July to December for the second semester.


The fees for international students are viewable on this page. This covers tuition and full accommodation, including food. There is also an application fee of NZD $250 payable with the submission of your application form.

Student Visa

To come to New Zealand for the training, you will need to obtain a student visa through Immigration New Zealand. They will require you to have a medical check, and to show evidence that you have been offered a place at a university or training establishment in New Zealand. They will also require you to show proof that you have paid the fees in advance, and that you also have enough funds available to support yourself financially while you are studying.
