There is one British Council test centre in New Zealands capital Wellington. The average IELTS score of test takers with English as native language is 7. According to our database, there are 109 universities in New Zealand that accept the IELTS test. The average IELTS score requirement for organisations accepting IELTS in New Zealand is 6.

New Zealand may only be known as “Australia’s younger sibling”, with their almost identical flags and adorable accents. But it still is a place you should seriously consider for your international degree. New Zealand isn’t famous only for its Lord of the Rings-landscapes. It also gave us great people like Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man who reached the peak of Mount Everest; Sir Ernest Rutherford, the first scientist who split the atom; and, last but not least, pop-singer Lorde. Yes, there are other people between great scientists and pop singers. But before we get there, we should cover all you need to know about New Zealand’s universities and student lifestyle. Who wouldn’t wish to study in the origin place of elves, dwarves, and hobbits? Besides this awesome location, you can always count on their educational system: despite having only 8 universities, one of them is ranked in top 100 by QS World University Rankings. Also, being the less-deadly version of Australia, New Zealand offers students a great nightlife, combined with great landscapes and polite people - all without the danger of being bitten by spiders bigger than your fist.

The minimum grades and scores international students are required to have vary wildly from university to university, and sometimes from programme to programme. The following English proficiency tests are usually accepted: TOEFL, Cambridge English and IELTS.

To study in English at one of the universities in New Zealand, you may need a proof of English proficiency. There are several standardised English tests that you can take to proof your English level, such as the PTE (Pearson Test of English), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) and IELTS (International English Language Testing System), offered by British Council and IDP. IELTS is the most popular of these tests, with British Council offering more than 500 test locations and being accepted by more than 9,000 organisations world-wide.

10 most popular study destinations for students in New Zealand

  • I decided to take IELTS because I think this is the most widely accepted English measurement test in Europe and I recommend it to everybody who wants to start or continue their studies in Europe.

  • I already had an IELTS test a year before I enrolled the program I chose the IELTS because I am more familiar with the test. It was challenging, but once you practiced about it before the test, you will do fine.

  • I liked IELTS in particular for the speaking test, because one can speak directly with a person. Also, for IELTS it only took about two weeks to receive the certificate.

  • More than 800 British Council test locations
  • Accepted by more than 9,000 institutions
  • More than 2.5 million tests taken last year
