The support team has a 24-hour emergency line for all international students enrolled at MIT. The emergency freephone contact number is 0800 648 2273.
International student orientation
All students at MIT are required to attend international orientation during their first semester.
Students can meet our support staff during orientation. Orientation takes place at the beginning of each semester, one week before your study begins.
Pastoral care for international students
As an international student in New Zealand, you have the right to expect a certain level of pastoral care and support. MIT has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students published by Ministry of Education. Copies of the code are available on request from MIT or from the New Zealand Qualifications Authority website.
