Copies of the Code are available on request from this institution or from the New Zealand Ministry of Education website at: www.minedu.govt.nz/goto/international

    Immigration:Full details of visa and permit requirements, advice on rights to employment in New Zealand while studying, and reporting requirements are available through the New Zealand Immigration Service, and can be viewed on their website at www.immigration.govt.nz

    Eligibility for Health Services:Most International Students are not entitled to publicly funded health services while in New Zealand. 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

Further information can be viewed on the ACC website at www.acc.co.nz

    Medical and Travel Insurance:International students must have appropriate and current medical and travel insurance while studying in New Zealand. Students can either have a cover arranged by Liston College or produce evidence at the time of enrolment that they have insurance cover from another company that meets the Code requirement.

    About Liston College Liston College is a small friendly Boys College of 800 Year 7 to 13 students (10 -18 years), conveniently located in the heart of Waitakere City only 15 minutes from downtown Auckland City.

    Waitakere City is well known for its surf beaches, bush walks, rural character and recreational facilities and mild climate, while having a number of large shopping centres throughout its suburbs.

    The College is set in spacious grounds and well resourced with up to date teaching and English Language support facilities as well as specialist rooms, including art and computer rooms, science laboratories, music suites, technology workshops and gymnasium.

    Liston College has much experience in offering education to International Students and preparing them for university study. It offers an excellent opportunity and facilities for International Students to come and study at a New Zealand school.

    Liston College has both a long term, full time, International Student programme, as well as short term Study Tour programmes. These can be tailored to suit individual needs and circumstances. Homestays can also be arranged.

    Liston College has a close relationship with St Dominics College, a Year 7 -13 Catholic Girls School, a three minute walk away, and St Pauls School, a Catholic Primary school, five minute car trip away. Many of our families have children in both Colleges and have had their sons go to St Pauls School.

    IntroductionWithdrawals and Refunds of FeesAll refunds of tuition fees to International Students withdrawing from Liston College are at the discretion of the Board of Trustees. Application for refund must be made in writing to the Board of Trustees setting out the special circumstances of the claim.

    Refund of Tuition fees If a student decides against coming to Liston College, tuition fees will be refunded minus a NZ$500 administration fee.

    Once an International Student has arrived in New Zealand, refunds (less a NZ$500 administration fee) will be made only in the most exceptional circumstances (i.e. return home because of serious illness or death of a close family member) and then only partial refund may be made as the School will have incurred costs on the students behalf for the whole year.

    The refund policy of the Liston College Board of Trustees is set out below, based on Section 4B(7) of the New Zealand Education Amendment (No.4) Act 1991. In arriving at their decision, the Board of Trustees will take into consideration the special circumstances of the withdrawing student and; CostsalreadyincurredbytheBoard.

    Please note: Norefundwillbemadetoastudentwhoisexcludedfromtheschoolby

    the Board of Trustees. International Students who gain permanent residence or parents who

    gain work visas after the course has commenced will not be eligible for a refund.

    Where a student is excluded from Liston College, the costs associated with the return journey home will be the responsibility of the parent or guardian, not Liston College.

    Homestay Fees Outstanding homestay fees will be refunded if the contract for tuition at Liston College or its contracted homestay agency, is terminated. Two weeks notice, or payment of two weeks fees in lieu of notice, must be given. The placement fee is not refundable.

    How to apply for RefundsAll refunds of tuition fees to withdrawing International Students are at the discretion of the Liston College Board of Trustees.

    Applications for refund must be made in writing to the Board of Trustees, setting out the special circumstances of the claim, such as return home because of serious illness or death of a close family member. This application should include any supporting documents (eg. medical certificates, tickets for return journey etc.)
