2019 Applicant's Supplementary Information Form

*** Applications for entry in 2019 open in April ***

Applicants please note you must have already completed and submitted an Initial Online Application Form before using this form.

If you are applying for more than one course, you will need to submit a new Applicant’s Supplementary Information Form for each course.

Please complete all the relevant sections of this form. Answer the questions in the order that they appear (some choices may change depending on your answers). We encourage you to read through and familiarise yourself with all sections of the form and gather all the information you will require BEFORE starting to fill it in.

Your personal statement should answer the questions outlined on your chosen programme’s ‘How to Apply’ page (and may be a link to a video version).

Don’t forget to let your referees know that they need to complete the online Reference Form.

International applicants only: check out our International Students’ page for further information.

Before you submit your form you will need to gather some documents, scan them and put them in a ‘ZIP’ file and attach it to this form. The documents you will need are:

  • A jpg/jpeg passport-style photo (Portrait, 500kb minimum – 5MB maximum)
  • Copies of proof of age and citizenship. Your passport (main page only) or your birth certificate
  • A copy of your most recently attained academic qualification(s)

If you want to know how to zip documents together to create a ‘ZIP’ file click HERE (Right-click on the link and choose ‘open in a new tab’)

If you receive an error message with ‘email address not valid’ this is caused by an extra gap or space in an email field somewhere on the form (usually caused by cut and pasting email addresses), enter email addresses manually. When you submit the form we will send you an automated response with a pdf copy attached shortly afterwards. If you do not receive this email, first of all check your junk mail folder (as this is where it often ends up). If it isn’t in there the form has not submitted correctly and you will need to submit it again. If you have any problems email apply@toiwhakaari.ac.nz
