How to re-enrol

Use this step-by-step guide to re-enrolling for the next academic year—simply plan your studies, select your courses, and pay your fees.

If you’re studying towards a degree or other multi-year qualification, you need to re-enrol before the start of each academic year.

It's a simple process if you're continuing with the same qualification or major subject. If you want to change your programme of study, talk to your Student Success Adviser or look at the guide for re-enrolling international students.

1. Plan your programme and select courses

The first step in planning your degree is to check your progress against the requirements of your degree, and find out what courses you need to do. Use the myDegree tool, which you can access via the Pūaha self-service portal, or talk to your Student Success Adviser.

If you’ve had significant difficulties or not completed previous courses, there might be an ‘academic hold’ or restriction on your record. Talk to your Student Success Adviser about planning your programme for the new academic year.

Be aware that you might not be able to enrol in every course that you select. This might be because:

  • The course has prerequisite courses—courses that are required to prepare you for success in this course—which you haven’t yet completed.
  • The course is a limited entry course, and your application wasn’t successful.

2. Plan your timetable

Use the Course Finder tool to look up each of the courses you want to do in the next academic year and find out when the lectures will be. Plan your timetable and make sure you don’t have any clashes.

3. Estimate your fees

We will calculate the final amount for your fees when you register for your selected courses, but you can estimate the cost of your studies yourself, whether you're a domestic or international student.

4. Re-enrol online

As long as you are continuing with the same programme of study, you only need to register for your chosen courses using the online enrolment system. If you have questions talk to your Student Success Adviser, who you can contact through Pūaha.

If you’re a returning student who didn’t study with us in 2022, you’ll need to contact us to get your sign-up details for Pūaha. Email or call 0800 04 04 04.

5. Pay your fees

Your re-enrolment is complete once you’ve paid your fees.

6. Renew your student visa and insurance

If you’re an international student, you must renew your student visa for each academic year. You’ll need to be able to prove to Immigration New Zealand that you have paid your tuition fees.

7. Renew your student ID card

You need to renew your Student ID card at the beginning of every academic year, particularly as it’s the swipe-card you use for access to the University's buildings. Find out how to update or replace your Student ID card.
