William Colenso College prides itself in the support we offer our International Students. We have a dedicated team of professional people who work hard to ensure the welfare and educational needs of our overseas visitors are met.
The International Director (Mr Robin Stewart) oversees the International Programme. He is the contact person for students or agents who wish to enquire about study at William Colenso College. When students arrive he advises them regarding subject choice and course selection. He also deals with such things as insurance, immigration matters, and students wishing to travel International Director & wife, Kathy outside of Napier during holidays.
The ESL Teacher (Mrs Julia Huang) takes classes for students who need extra assistance with learning English. Students are able to attend her classes for up to six hours a week. There are no extra costs involved. She also gives in-class support to students who require it in other subjects.
Assisting Mrs Huang, there are also two International Teacher Aides who can offer in-class support to students. They will sit alongside students in class who have difficulty understanding English and help them understand the subject teacher’s instructions.
As well as the dedicated staff of the International Department, there are many other staff members willing to assist in making your time here as pleasant and meaningful as possible.
Here are just some of the ways in which International Students are supported.
Before arrival, all queries will be answered as fully and promptly as possible. The International Director will help with any immigration or insurance matters which may arise.
