Te Kura and COVID-19 (novel coronavirus)

Recent Updates

New Zealand school students, domestic and international, affected by the current travel restrictions relating to the coronavirus are able to access Te Kura through their school.

A new emergency enrolment gateway to Te Kura has been created for schools that have students currently unable to return to New Zealand. Students must be enrolled in a New Zealand school in order to access the new gateway.

All state and state-integrated schools will be able to register domestic students aged 5 to 19 through the new gateway if they cannot enter New Zealand due to travel disruptions or restrictions related to the coronavirus outbreak.

International students, who are already enrolled at a New Zealand school, can be registered at Te Kura through the existing dual fee-paying gateway by their school.

Some questions and answers about registrations related to coronavirus

Who can enrol?

Students who are enrolled at a New Zealand school but who have been unable to enter New Zealand due to travel disruptions or restrictions associated with the novel coronavirus outbreak.

International students enrolled at a state or state-integrated school can be registered by their school via the existing Fee Paying Dual Tuition gateways (even though they will not be residing in New Zealand due to travel restrictions): Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu (Te Kura) Enrolment and Dual Tuition Policy

What subjects can I study?

We try to offer the greatest range possible, from primary level through to NCEA Level 3.

You should discuss the Te Kura courses that you wish to enrol in with your school.

Te Kura cannot perform NCEA assessments for international students while they are overseas. This will need to be done by the enrolling school when the students arrive in New Zealand, not while they are offshore. This includes both internal and external assessments. Te Kura’s role will be to support the enrolling school to provide the learning and coursework to their international students temporarily until they can get to New Zealand. 

How will my course be delivered?

Learning materials will be available through My Te Kura, our online learning environment, so you will need access to a computer with internet connectivity.
