Please note: Expressing Interest in Course through Find My Study DOES NOT mean you have applied for the course.

Review

Once your Find My Study Expression of Interest (EOI) is complete, institute will receive the notification to review your EOI. Institute can then accept your Expression of Interest, Decline it, Ignore it or Refer you to a different Institute. Institute has to review your application within 48 hours and you will be notified via Find My Study regarding any progress.

You can track the progress of your Expression of Interest using your Dashboard – just click on My Expressions of Interest on the right hand side of your Dashboard to see information about all of your Expressions Of Interest.

It is also a good idea to check your emails regularly as you will be receiving email alerts.

If your Expression Of Interest was accepted:

If Institute has accepted your Expression of Interest, you can apply for the chosen course directly to the Institute.

If your Expression of Interest was declined:

Don’t worry! If your Expression of Interest has been declined, Find My Study will offer you similar courses in different Institutes you can Express your Interest in.

If your Expression of Interest was ignored:

Once again, nothing to worry about. Find My Study will offer alternatives that we believe would be interesting to you.

If you have been referred to a different Institute:

The institute of your choice might have decided that they are not the best option for you based on the information you provided in your Expression of Interest. If that is the case and the Institute has referred you to a different institution you will get notified and the second institute will review your Expression of Interest and will get back to you within 48 hours.

Finalise

If your Expression of Interest was accepted you can now apply for the course directly to Institute.

If you have been referred to another institute – wait for the to come back to you with a response. Keep an eye on your emails and check the progress using your Dashboard.

You can Express Interest in as many courses as you like to explore your options – submitting an Expression of Interest does not mean you have applied for the course and there are no obligations to apply if your Expression of Interest was accepted.

You will also need to make sure you have correct visa before coming to New Zealand – check with the Institute directly when applying to find out what is the best option for you.
