Primary & Intermediate Schools Programme

What is the Primary & Intermediate Schools Programme?

Our Primary & Intermediate Schools Programme (PSP) is a programme offered by SIEBA and is an opportunity for young learners from around the world to learn alongside Kiwi students in primary and intermediate schools.  The programme offers students between 5 and 12 years of age the chance to apply to New Zealand Schools for enrolment ranging from one week through to long term.

“Many New Zealand schools see international education as an important part of what they do; these schools are part of New Zealand’s international education industry. Education New Zealand is looking forward to working strategically with an industry-led body that will lead, connect and grow the sector.”
