How to Apply
It’s easy to apply, once you’ve decided what you want to study just follow the steps below. If you’re still not sure what you want to do, try our Find your Fit tool or check out our prospectus for more options.
If you need help at any time with your application you can call us on 0800 2 WINTEC or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 2 - Apply/Login
APPLY - If you’re new to Wintec you’ll need to create a Wintec account and a student login. It's quick and easy to do - all you need is an email address. Apply here.
LOGIN – If you’re a current or past student and you've studied at Wintec before – including a STAR course or a short course – we’ll already have your details. Click the LOGIN HERE button.
Can't remember your login details? No problem, if you know the mobile number or the email address you used when you were studying, you can use the Wintec access portal https://password.wintec.ac.nz/ .
If you have any issues contact the student helpdesk on 0800 587 500.
Step 3 - Select a Programme
Search and select the programme you want to apply for. You’ll be asked to select an intake – this is the timeframe, or period, you want to study from and to.
If classes are open for enrolment (usually from October) you can select your classes at this point, but you don’t need to – we can do this for you later.
Step 4 - Complete Your Details
There’s some standard information we need you to provide – this is broken down into four sections - Personal Details, Contact Details, Education Details and General Details. This should be pretty straight forward to complete, but you can always contact us if you need help.
Personal Details – this information should already be populated from when you created your Wintec account and student login, but you can update it if anything has changed.
Contact Details – this is your postal address, email address and phone number so we can contact you, as well as the details of a contact person in case of an emergency.
Education Details – in this section you can upload verified copies of your NCEA results or academic transcripts if you’ve studied at another tertiary institute. You don’t need to do this now though, you can provide them later on by emailing them to us at email@example.com.
If you have a National Student Number (NSN), include this in this section and we’ll be able to access your NCEA Record of Learning ourselves.
General Details – this section includes questions we are required to ask by the Ministry of Education.
Step 5 - Supporting Documents
If you have them available you can upload your supporting documents at this point – you can check the programme pages to find out what is needed, if anything, for your chosen programme of study. More information about supporting documents is also available here.
Remember, you can supply your supporting documents later, it’s more important to complete your application. We’ll let you know what else we need.
Step 6 - Submit Your Application
The final step in the process is to submit your application – read through the declarations and if you’re applying on line click the SUBMIT button. You should receive an email confirmation that we’ve received it.
If you’ve downloaded and completed a paper copy of the application to enrol, you can post this to us at Freepost 566, Student Enrolment and Information Centre, WINTEC, Private Bag 3036, Hamilton 3240 or bring it in to the Student Enrolment and Information Centre at one of our Hamilton campuses. You can find our opening times here.
We’ll email you to confirm we’ve received it.
Step 7 - Outcome
Once you’ve submitted your application we’ll let you know if there’s anything more we need from you so we can assess it. You can expect to hear from us within a couple of days if there’s anything else we need. We’ll contact you by email, so remember to check your emails.
To see any correspondence we send you, you’ll need to log into your account on our Student at Wintec website here – your login details are included in the emails we send you.
We’ve also created some detailed instructions here on how to login and find your way around the site as there’s lots of useful information on it. If you need help you can always call us on 0800 2 Wintec (0800 2 946832).
We’ll assess your application and let you know the outcome, sometimes this can take a bit longer as we may ask you to come in and meet with one of our academic staff. We’ll make sure we keep you in the loop.
When you’re accepted to study and enrolments have opened (usually from October), we’ll send you an enrolment offer letter – you’ll need to accept this to confirm your place.
Step 8 - Accepting Your Offer
Your enrolment offer is valid for 10 days from the date it’s issued, so it’s important to accept it as quickly as you can. If we don’t hear from you we have to offer your place to another student.
You can accept your offer online by logging into your account on our Student at Wintec website here https://student.wintec.ac.nz.
There are detailed instructions here on how to accept your offer here. If you need help you can always call us on 0800 2 Wintec (0800 2 946832).
There are different types of offer – to find out more about the different types of offer and what they mean click here.
Step 9 - Paying For Your Study
Once you’ve accepted your offer we’ll send you a final indicator of fees – you can view this online by logging into your account on our Student at Wintec website here https://student.wintec.ac.nz.
The indicator of fees sets out the tuition fees for your programme. You can check the balance on your account at any time through the Student at Wintec website by clicking on the Online Finance tab and selecting Transaction View.
You should be aware that some programmes have extra costs that aren’t included in the tuition fees – this may include a fee for items like lab coats, specialist equipment, software licenses etc. If your programme has additional fees – which are called sundry fees - we’ll email you the details separately; sundry fees will also show on your balance of account.
Step 10 - Get Prepared
Now’s a good time to get everything sorted for your study at Wintec. Check out our Getting ready for study information, this includes everything you need to know about your first day, parking, accessing your timetable and getting an ID card.
