■ Welfare and health Facilities
Please talk to the Student Welfare Officer for any concerns you might have relating to your ( or another student’s) personal welfare or health. Bilingual counsellors are available so that you can discuss matters in your first language if necessary.
All international students are required to have medical insurance. IF you or your agent does not arrange your own insurance the school will purchase it and bill you for it. Your insurance company will have an emergency contact number for you to call. Please keep them informed at all times. Please remember that any medical treatment is likely to cost money. Sometimes these costs can be significant. Depending on your insurance, you may be required to pay for this yourself and submit the invoice to the insurance company for them to pay you back.
In addition to our onsite support team, you may find the following services and contact details helpful in the event of sickness, injury or another health related emergency:

We provide you with a student ID card which has your full name, ID number, Date of Birth and expiry date of the college.
Your student ID card gives you a discount on:
- Public transport such as bus, train and ferry.
- Entry tickets to the museum, zoo, movies and etc.
If you join one library in the South Auckland area you are able to use your card in any of the braches. Membership is free but you need to have two forms of ID i.e. passport and student card to join. We have library application forms in reception and we will help you to fill them out if you would like us to.
The Manukau library is the closest to our school. They have foreign language newspapers and “Penguin Readers” which are books designed especially for language student. You can also borrow “listening books” where you can read the story and listen to the tape at the same time.

Do not carry a lot of cash on you. It is highly recommended you carry no more than $100 on you. In New Zealand the EFTPOS system means that you can pay for items in shops, restaurants, offices etc. using your bank card. Your EFTPOS card will have a pin number which you should keep to yourself. No one else can use your card if they do not know your pin number, so you should never deep your card and your pin number together.
New Zealand has several large banks and the Student Welfare Officer will help you open an account as part of your orientation. Please talk to the student Welfare Officer if you need thepl with banking or advice on money matters.
