Homestay and Airport Pickup

If you would like WIE to arrange homestay accommodation for you, you must  apply at least 4 weeks before your intended arrival in New Zealand, to give us time to find the most suitable family for you.

If you require airport pick up, please send us your flight E-Ticket once you have booked it.

Homestay and Airport pick up will be confirmed after we receive payment of your course fees in full. We aim to confirm your Homestay details (and Airport Pickup, if requested) at least 2 weeks before your arrival.

WIE is closed on New Zealand Public Holidays. If your course is due to start on a public holiday, the course will start on the following day. For a list of Public Holidays please see our Academic Calendar.
