Once we receive an application the school will then review the completed documentation provided in the application pack and make a decision on the student’s eligibility. If successful, an International Student Acceptance Letter, offer of Place and Invoice will be issued.
(The offer of Place is an essential document required for the visa application process).

If the application is to be declined, the Director of International Students will send a communication to the person who submitted the application, with a brief explanation of the reasons for declining the application.

If the parents/legal guardians are agreeable with the invoice and terms outlined in the International Student Application and Contract of Enrolment, the fees are paid.  The contract is then signed and stamped by the schools approved signatory and the parents/legal guardians.  On confirmation of payment, a receipt is issued. 

Only once all documents are completed will a Homestay Profile be sent to the family.

The student, parents/legal guardians or agent can then apply on -line for a New Zealand Student Visa.


At the same time as, or shortly after sending the receipt to the family, the Director of International Students will send pre-departure information.  This will include comprehensive information about the school and other relevant information.  This is also available on our website.

When visa and flight details are organised and sent to the school, transport arrangements from Christchurch Airport to Timaru can be finalised.


The student is welcomed to Timaru by the homestay family and Mountainview High School Staff.  On arrival at the school, the student will participate in a comprehensive orientation programme.  Only once the student is fully prepared and ready, will the student be integrated into classes.
