International Students Overview
Welcome to Elite School of Beauty & Spa
At Elite we welcome international students to our campuses. The decision to study at a new institution in a new country can feel rather daunting. When students from other countries come to study at Elite it is important that those students are well informed, safe, and properly cared for.
Elite provides facilities, services, support and advice to help you adjust and to provide you with a positive and successful learning experience. Our supportive and friendly staff and tutors are ready to assist you.
If you have any questions about Elite, please send us an email.

Sonder Student Safety app
We have partnered with Sonder, a 24/7 personal safety and wellbeing service, to support all our international students. The Sonder app is for personal devices and has a number of features, like “Track My Journey” and “Check On Me”, that will help students live and study in New Zealand with confidence - if you are walking alone at night, going on a first date, or meeting up with a stranger to buy or sell goods, for example.
Additionally, if you are feeling stressed, anxious, lonely, or simply don't know who to turn to, you can speak to Sonder’s multilingual support team anytime via live chat or phone, and they can even send in-person assistance if you need it.
You will receive an activation email or text shortly before orientation. If you don't get your email or text, you will be given a code to use at orientation.
