Remember me

The half year course develops and improves English language skills required for AIC Year 11 course, the Preparation Year Programme for the IB Diploma.

The Award recognises extraordinary academic, extra-curricular and personal achievements. Soomin will join an elite community of international students at UBC, the top university in Canada and currently ranked by the Times Higher Education University Rankings at number 32 in the world.

Once again, AIC students have ranked among the highest IB Diploma students worldwide. Every year since the College’s first graduating class, our Year 13 students have out-performed the world IB results.

At the Top Scholars Awards Ceremony held at Government House in February 2015, 31 AIC students were honoured. AIC had more students receiving over 40 points in the Diploma than any other school in New Zealand. 29% of AIC students entering the Diploma Programme received over 40 points in 2014, which compares exceptionally well against the global percentage of 6% of students gaining 40 or more points in the Diploma.

We congratulate all of the students who received a Top Scholar Award and look forward to following you as you take the next step in your education.

Buses are the preferred way for students to travel to and from school. To avoid congestion in a residential area, parents are kindly requested to drop off and pick up students only if necessary and not directly in front of the school gates. 

Park safely and keep our kids safe

Our school is participating in Auckland Transport’s ‘Safety at the School Gate’ programme. Drivers who stop in the wrong place to drop off passengers put the safety of children at risk. Parking officers may be on patrol outside the school and will be issuing tickets to drivers who park illegally.

Once again an AIC student has been selected as a member of the NZ Maths Olympiad team. Vincent Qi, a Year 12 student, has been selected and will travel to the 2013 International Mathematical Olympiad in Santa Marta, Colombia in July. In previous years AIC students have brought back medals from this competition.  

As the graduating class of 2013 are preparing to sit their final IB Diploma examinations in May, AIC is delighted to announce that offers of place have started to come in from leading universities all over the world. So far offers have been received from Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College London, the University of California at Berkeley, the University of Pennsylvania, John Hopkins University, the University of Michigan and Carnegie Mellon University to name just a few. 

 

A HUGE congratulations to Susan Zhou, Aimee Dai and Ji Ho Park for making it through to the third and final stage of the New Zealand Biology Olympiad. All three students achieved in the 9th or 10th percentile, and have been offered a place in the team training camp, held at the end of April 2013.

Year 12 student and golfer Lita Guo, won her first national title after carding a one under par in the final round of the Lawnmaster classic on the Charles Tour in Manuwatu.

Lita, who recently claimed a bronze medal at the Australian Youth Olympics Festival as part of the NZ mixed team, was delighted to win for the first time on the Charles Tour.

“I have had a few runner-up finishes and top fives but it is a great feeling to win,” says Lita.

The NZ Golf website article compares Lita’s playing in the tournament to Lydia Ko who is currently the World No. 1 Amateur.

Congratulations on your win Lita!  

AIC is tremendously proud to announce that three Year 12 students have been presented with University of New South Wales medals for their outstanding achievement in ICAS mathematics exams. 

 

 

 

Congratulations to Huynh Ngoc Phoung Thao who has been selected by the NZ Chemistry Olympiad Trust to be a member of their training group for the 45th Chemistry Olympiad Competition to be held in Moscow in July 2013. 

 

The Office of Ethnic Affairs is the government’s primary source of information and advice about ethnic diversity. Applications were sought by this Office for Auckland-based ethnic youth to join the Young Leaders and Collaborators Programme. 130 youth applied and ten, including AIC Year 13 student  Fatumata Bah, were chosen. 

ZuoPeng Xiao has won a medal in the Australian Mathematics Competition. 

Young Yang Lu has been selected as one of four  World Vision Ambassadors. Young was invited to attend a special workshop during the term break. From 55 applicants, a group of ten were invited to attend the workshop and from that group the four ambassadors were chosen. 

 

 

AIC students once again achieved excellent results in the 2012 China Bridge speech competition in Auckland. 

Two teams represented AIC at the Central Auckland Region Business Plan Presentations of the Young Enterprise Scheme. The business plan explains the business idea, company setup and how the team plans to produce, market and sell their product. It also shows projected costs and expected profits. Using information from the business plan, students then pitch their business idea to a panel of outside judges. 

One of the teams ‘Echo,’ was highly commended for its innovative idea and the judges were extremely complimentary about the marketability of their product. The second team ‘Crossroads’ was awarded first place, and will go on to compete in the national competition later in the year. Congratulations to the both teams for representing AIC so well and to Mr Muir for his hard work in assisting and guiding these teams.

The AIC chess team came third in the 2011 Australian National Interschool Open Competition (missing out on second place in a nerve-wracking tie-breaker). 

Nicole Tsoi came first in the secondary girls competition and Boyd Siripornpitak came third in secondary boys. These are excellent results and your school is proud of you all. Dr Sesiashivili, HOD Maths and teacher in charge of chess

 

The Ronisch Secondary Schools Piano Competition, now in its fourth year, took place over the weekend of October 29th and 30th 2011, with the heats on Saturday and finals on Sunday. 

Dr Nora Yao, Director of the Confucius Institute at the University of Auckland came to present prizes to five students who achieved places in the 5th New Zealand Chinese Essay Competition. The competition is open to students at New Zealand secondary schools and tertiary institutions who are non-native speakers of Chinese. Dr Yao spoke to all students in Mrs Liang’s Year 11 Chinese class congratulating them on studying Chinese and reminding them that speaking English and Chinese means they can communicate with 50% of the world’s population— a useful ability which will stand them in good stead, whatever they choose to do in the future.

 

The prize winners from AIC were Carlene Kim, Year 11—first prize, Ji Young Kim; Year 13 and Joann Lee Year 12—second prize; Jason Feng, Year 12 and Jia Wen Choo, Year 13—fourth prize.  Congratulations to all prize winners and their teachers.

 

 

 

On Saturday 24th September Chaeri Yoon, a Y11 student, won first place in an English presentation competition held at Auckland University. This event was organised by the Auckland University Korean Political Studies Association (AKPA) and participants had do deliver a presentation on terrorism, nuclear issues, poverty or environmental issues. Chaeri Yoon’s presentation was on poverty. She was awarded $120 prize money and a trophy. Chaeri Yoon has decided to donate the total prize money to UNICEF.

 

The AIC chess team - Boyd Siripornpitak (team leader), Nicole Lok, Chenghang Li and Jerry Chen played in an Auckland-zone competition at the end of August 2011 and were completely dominant over the opposition, earning a place in the national finals. The four players won six gold medals, one silver and one bronze between them – three members of our team won all of their games in the tournament which is a rare accomplishment. The team will participate in the Chess Power Inter-Schools National Finals on Tuesday 4th October 2011. Good luck!

 

 

 

AIC Homestay Accommodation

Year 11 students have the choice of staying at the AIC Boarding House, or in homestay accommodation.

Homestays are rewarding for students allowing them to become a part of a family.

All homestay families comply with the Ministry of Education guidelines set out in the Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016. All families are police-vetted, and regularly monitored through home visits and interviews with the student.

Homestay includes

  • A bedroom with a desk and chair for studying
  • Bedside lamp
  • Bed with linen and warm bedding
  • A heater, rubbish bin and laundry basket
  • A chest of drawers and/or wardrobe
  • Three meals a day, seven days a week
  • Initial airport pickup
  • Internet access

The students are expected to behave as a member of the family. They will be expected to help with minor chores like setting the table and doing the dishes at meal times, make their beds and keep their room tidy. 

The 52nd International Mathematical Olympiad was held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from the 17th to the 24th of July 2012. Beforehand, the New Zealand team had training camps both in Auckland and on an island off the coast of The Netherlands with the Dutch team. The actual competition was held over 2 days with 3 problems each day. 

 

Congratulations to Joann Lee on her early decision offer from the prestigious University of Pennsylvania. In addition to her academics, Joann has been involved in a range of extracurricular activities while at AIC, including leading the school orchestra and extensive volunteer work with NGO's nationally and globally.  Her plans at this stage are to work internationally in the field of human rights after graduation from university.

It is our pleasure to congratulate our students on their university of Oxford and Cambridge successes. Five of the current Year 13 class have received an offer of place from these prestigious and world renowned centers of excellence.  The five students, the university and the subject they will study are: Arun Shanmuganathan, Cambridge, Mathematics. Choo Jia Wen, Oxford, Biological Sciences; Boyd Siripornpitak, Cambridge, Engineering; Cai Luona, Oxford, Biomedical Engineering and Choi Ji Ho, Cambridge, Natural Sciences.

It is also excellent to note that the five successful students are all of different nationality, therefore truly reflecting the international nature of the school, and also that four of them are AIC boarding students.

Only a small percentage of students who apply to these institutions receive an offer, so for a relatively small school such as ours to achieve five places is a marvelous endorsement of the caliber of the students, quality of the teachers and the university application support provided by our dedicated university counseling team here at Auckland International College

XuRan Phillip Zhang received offers from the London School of Economics and the University of California - Berkeley. Phillip has chosen to study a conjoint Law/Commerce degree at the University of Sydney. IB Diploma score 45/45.

Frequently Asked Bus Questions

Why do students need to travel by bus?

AIC has a policy of no student drivers. This is to ensure compliance with Auckland Council resource consent rules and to avoid congestion at the College. Parents are advised to drop off and pick up students only if necessary and away from the school gates. We suggest parents drop off students beyond the College, at the end of Heaphy Street. 

Will students be issued with bus passes?

Yes AIC will issue bus passes.

Who will organize the bus passes, what happens when they are lost or forgotten by a student?

The AIC receptionist will re-issue a pass if a student loses theirs, at a small cost. If a students forgets their pass but they are in uniform they can get on the bus. The driver will then report their name to the bus supervisor at school to check they should be using the service.

If a student misses the bus from the boarding house in the morning what will the policy be?

All students will be able to have their breakfast in good time to leave on the allocated bus. Students who miss the bus for no valid reason will have to take the public bus or catch a taxi.

If a student misses the boarding bus after school what will the policy be?

As with the morning buses, if a student misses the bus for no valid reason they will have to catch the public bus or a taxi.

Who will deal with bus incidents and complaints eg illness, poor behavior?

Mr Montgomerie is the bus coordinator: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  

Can AIC staff use the buses?

Yes as long as there is space.

Will the routes change during the year?

AIC will not change the route but will review the services periodically if the numbers using a service decline.

Will we alter buses when the IB exams are on and they will finish beyond the normal leaving times?

Once we know the IB exam timetable AIC may be able to modify departure times for the bus timetable to suit more of the students, but will not add extra services.

If I pay for a bus pass and my circumstances change can I have a refund?
No, bus fares are non-refundable.  

Can students just use the bus occasionally and pay for each ride?

The current set- up does not allow for students to pay daily. Fares are for a school term.


Can students catch the bus only in the mornings and pay half of the fare?
No. 

Where exactly are the bus stops?

Please refer to the detailed routes on the website.

Will we run the buses even if they are not full?

Yes.

What will a student do if they miss a bus in the morning?

If a student misses the bus it is then their responsibility to get themselves to school.

Our resource consent states that at least 80% of AIC students must arrive at the bus bay and leave there by bus. Therefore parents are advised to drop off and pick up students only if necessary and if possible at the Blockhouse Bay shops, to avoid traffic congestion.

Will students be issued with bus passes?

Yes AIC will issue bus passes.

Who will organize the bus passes, what happens when they are lost or forgotten by a student?

The AIC receptionist will re-issue a pass if a student loses theirs, at a small cost. If a students forgets their pass but they are in uniform they can get on the bus. The driver will then report their name to the bus supervisor at school to check they should be using the service.

If a student misses the bus from the boarding house in the morning what will the policy be?

All students will be able to have their breakfast in good time to leave on the allocated bus. Students who miss the bus for no valid reason will have to take the public bus or catch a taxi.

If a student misses the boarding bus after school what will the policy be?

Classes finish at 4.00pm. The boarding buses leave the school at 4.10pm and 4.30pm. As with the morning buses, if a student misses the bus for no valid reason they will have to catch the public bus or a taxi.

Who will deal with bus incidents and complaints eg illness, poor behavior?

AIC will appoint a person to oversee the operation of the bus services.

Can AIC staff use the buses?

Yes as long as there is space.

Will the routes change during the year?

AIC will not change the route but will review the services periodically if the numbers using a service decline.

Will we alter buses when the IB exams are on and they will finish beyond the normal leaving times?

Once we know the IB exam timetable AIC may be able to modify departure times for the bus timetable to suit more of the students, but will not add extra services.

What is the cost of the AIC bus?

$390 per term including GST. 
 
If I pay for a bus pass and my circumstances change can I have a refund?
No, bus fares are non-refundable.  

Can students just use the bus occasionally and pay for each ride?The current set- up does not allow for students to pay daily. Fares are for a school term.


Can students catch the bus only in the mornings and pay half of the fare?
No. 

Where exactly are the bus stops?

Please refer to the detailed routes on the website.

Will we run the buses even if they are not full?

Yes, AIC is committed to operating the services indicated until June 2012.

What will a student do if they miss a bus in the morning?

If a student misses the bus it is then their responsibility to get themselves to school.

Will the bus charges stay the same for the whole year?

We intend to keep the charges the same for term 3 and 4 once we are at the Blockhouse Bay campus and then review them before the start of the new academic year 2012-13. The bus fee is on our fee schedule and clearly states on it as “AIC has a right to change the fees”.

"It all started 3 years ago. I hesistantly walked into the Auckland International College (AIC) building in my new uniform, complete with a blazer, unsure of what really laid ahead of me. The International Baccalaureate Diploma programme was what they called it, IB for short, a curriculum vaguely described as challenging by a few and incredibly difficult by most. But other than that, I didn’t understand much about this new academic journey I was to embark on.

3 years have past. Now I am a graduate of AIC with an IB diploma score of 45/45, the maximum possible. Looking back, I realise that although the IB programme is very well recognised overseas, it is not as well known in New Zealand. As I have studied the curriculum and tutored IB, CIE, and NCEA students, I want to share some of my experiences of the programme and the differences I noticed between IB and the other 2 curricula that are more common in NZ.

One of the very first things I noticed about the IB was the academic rigor. As I had to take 6 subjects from a range of different areas, study an additional course on theory of knowledge, and write a 4,000 word extended research paper, the increase in workload was without a doubt significant. On top of that, my choosing to do 4 subjects at ‘higher level’ rather than the usual 3 didn’t make my academics life any easier. From just the number of subjects required of all IB students and the amount of ‘extra’ work needed, it was easy to see why many students would describe IB as ‘challenging’ or more frequently ‘incredibly difficult’, especially compared to the much lighter workloads of NCEA and CIE.

But for me, it was this broad workload that I found valuable. Although it required more effort, the 6 subjects and additional courses and assignments gave me more opportunities to extend myself. The distribution requirements meant I not only stuck with my main interest of the sciences and math, but I was also able to learn 2 languages and a social science. I learned how to write proper research papers, perform individual and group presentations, and explore and question what and how we know. The IB made it easy for me to avoid the trappings of focusing my subjects too soon and it gave me a well rounded education.

Another significant change was the academic focus of the IB. From my experience with NCEA and CIE, I found that the major focus of these curricula is to do well on a final exam. For NCEA, that means more credits, and for CIE, it means higher percentages. However, for the IB, the final examinations are but a part of the curriculum. I quickly found there was a very large emphasis on the assignments and projects throughout the year. Every week, I would find myself typing out lab reports, writing literature essays, and doing mathematical investigations amongst many others. I was learning throughout the year, rather than just before the exams and I was able to have a stronger understanding of not only the subjects, but also the related areas in the world. The sudden change from studying in short bursts to do well in large exams to learning gradually to have better understanding was refreshing, and I know I will be able to take what I learned from IB with me wherever I go.

However, what made IB truly rewarding for me was that academics was only a part of the whole programme. Unlike the NCEA and CIE, the IB has a core component called CAS, standing for Creativity, Action, and Service. Through this programme, I was encouraged to participate in activities that fell into 1 of the 3 categories, meaning IB wasn’t just about study. Thanks to CAS, I explored and tried out different activities. During my time at AIC, I founded and led the school robotics club, earned 2nd Dan blackbelt in Taekwondo, chaired the organization looking after all the service clubs in the school, represented New Zealand at the International Youth Advisory Congress on Internet Safety in London and the Professor Harry Messel International Science School, and sailed aboard the Spirit of New Zealand amongst many others. Of course, CAS isn’t absolutely necessary to do extracurricular activities, but it contributes by encouraging IB students to go out of their comfort zone and try different things.

There are so much more I could say about the IB, my experiences with it, and how differs with NCEA and CIE, but hopefully this gives you some idea of what it is like. For me, IB was not just about learning subjects at school. It was about learning both inside and outside class, whether it be sitting during a lesson or running around starting up activities. But most of all, it was about making the most of the opportunities present, not just to prepare for exams, but to learn and grow as a person."

AIC Graduate 2010, Taehwan Shin.  Offered a scholarship to study Biomedical Engineering at Harvard University, US.  Also awarded  Auckland University Scholarship, to study Biomedical Engineering. 

"The IB at AIC definitely gives you the competitive edge over those with non-IB backgrounds at the University of Auckland. I constantly recall the things I learnt at AIC, however small, which I can use as extrinsic material in my university work. When I recently applied for the Russell McVeagh Law Scholarship, the HR Manager immediately recognised me as an all-rounded student with a top-notch education which is second to none. AIC endows its students with an expectation of success simple because the IB coupled with AIC provides the first steps to success."


New Zealand AIC Graduate, Ken Masden.  Offered Russell McVeagh Law Scholarship from the University of Auckland, NZ.

I wouldn't have made it without Ms Solomon and all of my teachers and friends at AIC. 

I've not decided yet what I'll study in the future. I remember Ms Solomon asked me about my future study during vocal coaching and I answered with great certainty that I wanted to take Finance. But now I think Finance is not for me. 

There were two people who made me change my mind. The first one was Ms Keeman. I was lucky to have her as my Economics teacher for two years. Her lessons on issues of development such as inequality,poverty and pollution inspired me a lot. I want to take further studies in Development Economics to help solve those issues. The second one was Mr Huebner, US Amabassador for NZ, who gave a speech at our graduation ceremony. I keep thinking about his words: "The world needs more scientists and more engineers," and I remember that I once wanted to be a scientist, someone who invents things to make life better.  

I'm still in the self-exploring process. I have not decided, really. Whatever I'll take for university studies, I hope I can use it to help other people.

Vietnamese AIC Graduate, Bao Tran Do. IB Perfect Score 45 /45.  Offers from University of Warwick, Imperial College and University College, UK.  Deciding on which university to accept. 

"AIC has been invaluable in providing me with resources and expertise for my application to Oxford. The academic rigor of the International Baccalaureate programme at AIC enabled me to become a competitive applicant for admissions, and I received superb guidance from the UK university counsellor on the application process, and choosing the right course and university for me. Furthermore, Mrs Solomon personally coached me on a crucial aspect of my application - the interview. The school alumni network also provided me with advice on my personal statement from successful past students. Needless to say, I felt supported by the AIC community in every step of the process."

"I couldn’t have done it without AIC.  IB has allowed me to pursue my dream of studying theoretical physics at the University of Cambridge.  This was an impossibility before I began at AIC.  The difference between AIC and other secondary schools is that at AIC students are there to do their best.  I was with other students who worked hard and were determined to succeed.  No one is there to simply ‘get through school’ with the least effort, everyone is there to learn."

"AIC is unlike other schools in that it changes the way you think and learn. At AIC you don't just attend classes and complete assignments just because it's school and you have to. You study because you want to achieve. Then you achieve because you want to make a difference in the world."

“One of the things I like about AIC is its high quality and standards of education - you have an excellent library, computer system and lab facilities that are dedicated to your learning and the teachers have high expectations of their students and push you really hard. I think the rigour of the IB and the quality of education at AIC prepared me really well for college."

AIC is unlike other schools in that it changes the way you think and learn. At AIC you don't just attend classes and complete assignments just because it's school and you have to. You study because you want to achieve. Then you achieve because you want to make a difference in the world 

I couldn’t have done it without AIC.  IB has allowed me to pursue my dream of studying theoretical physics at the University of Cambridge. This was an impossibility before I began at AIC.  The difference between AIC and other secondary schools is that at AIC students are there to do their best.  I was with other students who worked hard and were determined to succeed.  No one is there to simply ‘get through school’ with the least effort, everyone is there to learn.   

Students support and encourage each other and celebrate each others successes.  They are focused in class and thrive in this learning environment.    This is an atmosphere where even the brightest students are challenged, and with determination can thrive. 

The Creativity Action and Service programme gave me a chance to develop my leadership and teamwork skills.  After fundraising for two years a group of students travelled to Cambodia to build 9 houses in a small village.  This was a life changing experience. It changed my perspective at a deep level.

AIC is a great working environment to study what we are really passionate about, with the support of enthusiastic, world class teachers.

One of the things I like about AIC is its high quality and standards of education - you have an excellent library, computer system and lab facilities that are dedicated to your learning and the teachers have high expectations of their students and push you really hard.

I think the rigour of the IB and the quality of education at AIC prepared me really well for college.

When I decided to go to AIC, I thought the IB programme would allow me to discover a way to a top university which I would not be able to find if I stayed in my home country.  And indeed, AIC was an international community of young dreamers who had the same thoughts as mine.  

Students of AIC set their goals very high and were ready to strive for them.  Having put myself in such a challenging environment, I was stimulated by my friends and I could push myself.  Also the quality and standards of teaching staff at AIC is quite high.  They taught us to have various points of view and to question them to find out the truth.  This way of study helped me not only with IB, but also with my university study.  

Having graduated from AIC as a pathway to my dream, I can say that our strong ambition and a rigorous environment like AIC are the only things we need to achieve our goals.

My experience at AIC was both memorable and challenging.  The AIC community challenges you to strive for excellence and provides immense support and guidance along the way.  Whether it was the last minute rush to hand in the 4,000 word Extended Essay or the 4:00am wake-up call in Cambodia to watch the sunrise over Angkor Wat, AIC has certainly provided me with my fair share of challenges along the way.
 
People often ask me what I like most about AIC, and my response is always 'the people’.  The school brings together people from so many diverse backgrounds and gathers them in the middle of metropolitan Auckland.  We all share the same mentality that has defined AIC from other schools: 'be the best that you can!'  I have maintained excellent contact with my fellow ‘06 graduates.  The friendships forged at AIC gives us opportunities to gather in different parts of the world years after graduation and reminisce about the wonderful memories. 

AIC is not only a platform of cultural exchange, a stepping stone to the world's finest universities, but also a network to build life-long friendships.

AIC offered me a lot of precious opportunities which encouraged me to challenge myself to the best of my abilities. When I first arrived at AIC, I was so scared and frustrated with my English, and this held me back from many of my ambitious goals.  I became a real outsider. However, teachers, friends, and AIC did not just let me give up.  They taught me how to believe in myself and how to overcome such language barriers.  

CAS activities, especially, helped me a lot in many ways such as giving me many chances to express my opinions and to demonstrate my strength of being of support to others.  Thanks to everything that I experienced at AIC, I got three offers from the top universities in the UK, and received a scholarship from Ohio Wesleyan University in the US.

At this moment, I can confidently say that I did my best and I have no regrets whatsoever; however, I now have new challenges to face.  I will go to Kansai Gaidai University in Japan this year as an exchange student for one year. I know it will give me another hardship; nevertheless, I am not afraid this time but confident.

I feel that my learning experience at Auckland International College has tremendously broadened my horizon and opened up a window for numerous opportunities that I would not have seen otherwise.  For me, it was important to make the most of my time in New Zealand, so I am very grateful to my friends, the AIC staff and of course my parents, whose involvement was essential in making my experience at AIC fruitful.  Meeting people from completely different backgrounds from yours is an eye-opening experience, and I am delighted that AIC provided me with a chance to do just that.

In gaining admission to the University of Chicago, I think it really helped me that I became friends with people from very different cultural backgrounds, so that I was able to grow into a well-rounded student who is not just about academics.  Obviously your studies are very important, but I believe that a successful learning experience cannot be achieved in classrooms only, and I don’t think that top-notch universities from America want someone who can just write good essays and solve difficult math problems.  With its unique environment, AIC should be able to give you a great chance to prepare yourself for a successful future beyond high school

The International Baccalaureate Diploma is a highly credited programme, and the fact that I was able to complete such a rigorous curriculum proves to any university that I am capable of pursuing their most demanding teaching.

At AIC, I was indulged in the excellent studying resources and facility, and given full support from the very gifted and wholehearted teachers.  Studying with my knowledgeable Economics professor who came from Wales has spared me the initial puzzlement as I entered a UK university and experienced the real British accent for the first time.

The best part of AIC for me is about the people I met.  Studying at an international school such as AIC, I enjoyed the broad exposure to various cultures and ways of thinking, while being able to cultivate a life-time network of friends.

AIC has so far been the best investment I have made towards my education.

The most valuable experiences from AIC would be doing assignments such as Math portfolios and Extended Essay and completing CAS.  As you might know, University students are expected to do their own study; researching, organising and writing a report.  So Math portfolios and Extended Essay, which required an ability of doing things by me, gave me a huge advantage at McGill University.  Also having the experience of making friends with international students was also a beneficial factor in terms of adjusting at this University.  Moreover, taking a college level of subjects at AIC made it possible for me to finish my curriculum in 3 years.

Academically and socially, life at AIC prepared me to do well at University.  I strongly advise all students at AIC to achieve as much as they can during their study.

When I first came to AIC, I was not really good at speaking English.  I struggled a lot in classrooms and even after I went back to AIC Tower because I could not communicate with other students well.  I felt miserable, but did not want to run away from it, so I took some action to improve this situation.  Firstly, I tried to stick with non-Japanese students, and learned English from them.  Secondly, I sought advice from teachers for my study.  

The result was successful.  My grades improved dramatically, and I could make lots of friends.  From my experiences in AIC, I can say that it is important to take some actions when you feel you are not doing great on your study or are having problems.  If you leave them for long, they may cause you a lot of problems later on.  There are teachers, friends and your parents who can support you at any time, and I am sure that it is better to share the problems with someone.

AIC boarding operates a study system whereby each new student starts off with high amount of regulation in terms of lights out, laptop usage etc. However when a student demonstrates  a good level of independent time-management skills and is achieving well in effort grades then the student will be offered more independence with regard to their daily study structure. 

Auckland International College has agreed to observe and be bound by the Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016 (the Code) administered by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA). If students have concerns about their treatment by a New Zealand educational provider or agent of a provider they should follow guidelines given on the NZQA page http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/assets/Providers-and-partners/Code-of-Practice/int-students-make-a-complaint-updated.pdfCopies of the Code are available on request from this institution or from the New Zealand Legislation website

Translations of the Code in various languages are published by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority and can be accessed via the New Zealand Qualifications Authority Website http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/providers-partners/education-code-of-practice/code-of-practice-resources-languages 

 

 

What is the Code?
The Code is a document that prescribes the required outcomes education providers and their agents need to deliver for their international students.The Code applies to pastoral care and provision of information only, and not to academic standards.


Immigration
Full details of visa and permit requirements, advice on rights of employment in New Zealand while studying, and reporting requirements are available through the New Zealand Immigration Service, and can be viewed on their website at www.immigration.govt.nz 


Eligiblity for Health Services 
Most international students are not entitled to publicly funded health services while in New Zealand.  If you receive medical treatment during your visit, you may be liable for the full costs of that treatment.  Full details on entitlements to publicly funded health services are available on their website at www.moh.govt.nz 

Accident Insurance
The Accident Compensation Corporation provides accident insurance for all New Zealand citizens, residents and temporary visitors to New Zealand, but you may still be liable for all other medical and related costs.  Further information can be viewed on the ACC website at www.acc.co.nz 

Medical & Travel Insurance 
International students must have appropriate and current medical and travel insurance while studying in New Zealand.  

Who does the Code apply to?
The Code applies to all education providers in New Zealand with international students enrolled. The Code is mandatory to these providers and must be signed by them.

What is an “international student”?
An “international student” is a foreign student studying in New Zealand.

How can I get a copy of the Code?
You can download a copy of the Code from the New Zealand Legislation website at http://www.legislation.govt.nz/regulation/public/2016/0057/latest/DLM6748147.html



How do I know if an education provider has signed the Code?
The New Zealand Qualifications Authority maintains a register of all signatories to the Code. This is available online from http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/providers-partners/caring-for-international-students-the-code-of-practice-for-pastoral-care/signatories-to-the-code-of-practice/. If the education provider that you are seeking to enrol with is not a signatory to the Code you will not be able to study at that institution.

What if I have questions about the Code?
The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) is the administrator of the Code. If you have any inquiries about the Code, you can email NZQA through their website: http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/about-us/contact-us/

What if something goes wrong?
If you have concerns about your treatment by your education provider or by an agent of the provider, the first thing you must do is contact the principal, the international student director, or another person who has been identified to you as someone that you can approach about complaints at your institution. The Code requires all institutions to have fair and equitable internal grievance procedures for students, and you need to go through these internal processes before you can take the complaint any further.
If your concerns are not resolved by the internal grievance procedures, you can contact the International Education Appeal Authority (IEAA).

What is the IEAA?
The IEAA is an independent body established to deal with complaints from international students about pastoral care aspects of advice and services received from their education provider or the provider’s agents. The IEAA enforces the standards in the Code of Practice.

How can I contact the IEAA?

You can write to the IEAA at:

What will the IEAA do?
The purpose of the IEAA is to adjudicate on complaints from international students. The IEAA will investigate complaints and determine if there has been a breach of the Code. The IEAA has the power to impose sanctions on education providers who have committed a breach of the Code that is not a serious breach. These sanctions include an order for restitution, publication of the breach, and/or requiring that remedial action be undertaken.
The IEAA will refer complaints that are not about pastoral care to another regulatory body if appropriate.
The education provider will be given a reasonable time to remedy the breach. If the breach is not remedied within that time, the IEAA may refer the complaint to the International Education Review Panel (the Review Panel).
The IEAA can determine if it considers that a breach of the Code is a serious breach. If the breach is a serious breach, the IEAA will refer the complaint to the Review Panel.

At AIC boarding we aim for students to develop inter-cultural understanding, independence and a sense of community.

AIC boarding is managed with clear guidelines for students. The supervisors who care for the students are from a variety of countries and are a professional and caring group of adults. Several leadership opportunities are available to senior boarders and a house competition is encouraged.

Facilities:

The boarding house facilities include a BBQ area, pianos, TV and games room, fitness room, study hall and a range of recreation facilities including a basketball court. 

Boarding staff supervise prep for students every day. 

Meals:

AIC boarders enjoy a catering system which blends nutritional needs with the dietary preferences of our student population. Our catering team is able to cater for any special needs including religious, vegetarian and allergies.

A high priority is placed on meeting the 5+ fruit and vegetables per day and students are encouraged to make healthy choices. Fruit and snacks are available after school for students. Facilities are also available for students to prepare their own hot and cold drinks, snacks and special food.

Breakfast is available every morning in the dining room with a selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurt, toast and spreads as well as a variety of hot options through the week.

Lunches are delivered to the school, and students make their own sandwich style lunch oncea week.

Dinners are served in the dining room every evening. For a sample menu please click here

Four AIC students attended the annual Auckland Chinese Speech contest on Saturday 14th May. It was a keen competition with the top Chinese-learning students from Auckland secondary schools and our students achieved remarkably: Ji Young Kim won the 2nd prize. Jiawen Choo won the 1st prize. Joann Lee & Jason Fong won the Premier awards and will represent Auckland at the National Chinese Speech Contest in Wellington.

The Young Women in Public Affairs (YWPA) Award is run by Zonta Club of Auckland which is a member of Zonta International, a body whose aim it is to advance the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy.  The YWPA Award honours young women in secondary level or pre-university schools, who demonstrate a commitment to leadership in public policy, government and volunteer organisations.  The winner this year was Fatumata Bah, Year 11, who has been automatically entered in to the International Award selection round. 

Jack Zhou has been officially selected for the 2011 New Zealand Team that will be competing at the International Biology Olympiad in Taipei this year. He is one of four students who made the team out of 19 who made it to the training selection camp that both Jack and Bill Chen attended in the recent holidays. This is the second time Jack has made the team after competing and representing New Zealand in Korea last year where he received a Bronze award.

We are proud to announce that Taehwan Shin, 2010 graduate, who was one of three students awarded the IB Diploma perfect score, has been offered a place at Harvard University.  

"This year nearly thirty-five thousand students, a record number, applied for admission to the entering class.  Faced with many more talented and highly qualified candidates than it had room to admit, the Admissions Committee took great care to choose individuals with exceptional character as well as unusual academic and extracurricular strengths." (Dean of Admissions, Harvard)

Student performance is graded according to criteria which are moderated internationally and consistent across all IB schools throughout the world.

The broad concept of the IB curriculum ensures that students develop a well-rounded understanding, with each student selecting one subject from each of the groups shown in the hexagon diagram below.

At the heart of the programme:

    • The Extended Essay assists students to become independent learners who will succeed at university.

    • Theory of Knowledge develops critical and reflective thinking.

    • Creativity, Activity and Service ensures that IB graduates are healthy and that they recognise the importance of service to others.

AIC provides a learning environment conducive to academic achievement. Classrooms are modern and technologically advanced. Rooms are equipped for multi-media presentation. 

A multi-media library and technology centre enable AIC to access, research and retrieve information globally. The library, science laboratories and art suite have all been designed and equipped to meet the rigorous IBO standards  

Internationally recruited, experienced and dedicated teachers from a variety of cultures and backgrounds engage students with a range of approaches to learning – from small group work to the use of sophisticated information technologies – in order to ensure that all students are catered for, and that their communicative skills are developed throughout their course. 

AIC offers committed students the opportunity to realise their potential at this level, before moving into higher education and the world of work where I truly hope they will make a difference on a local or global scale. The IB qualification equips our young men and women with excellent skills with which to engage with academic challenges of university life and the broader contribution to community and society.

We look for students to push themselves beyond the boundaries that would normally be set and we support them in their endeavors. Therefore a can do attitude is a must for a student to study the IB at AIC, as without that approach the opportunities available will be lost and potential will go to waste.

I am constantly impressed, even after 20 years in the profession, by what our students are capable of achieving. They go further, apply themselves more fully and engage with the tasks more completely than I have experienced before and it is a privilege to be able to work with them in this vibrant atmosphere.

AIC Principal, Mr Mike Parry

It has established an international reputation for gaining outstanding academic results as well as for its graduates gaining acceptance at leading universities worldwide. 

 

AIC graduates find their niche through quality pathways.

AICJ Junior and Senior High School in Hiroshima, Japan, www.aicj.ed.jp is the second AIC school. It is a Japanese school with both Japanese and foreign teachers. It shares the same vision as Auckland International College, and offers its students a pathway to Japanese as well as to English speaking universities. It is also an IB World School.

The IB Diploma is marked on a world-wide scale, where each subject is graded from 1 (lowest) to 7 (highest possible score) for all six subjects.  Marks are also allocated for the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge.   Students must get a total of 24 points and fulfil other criteria in order to receive the IB Diploma.

The marks are internationally moderated so that the same standards apply throughout the world.
