Philosophy of Care
St Andrew’s College is a signatory to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. This means that we have the necessary processes and resources in place to ensure our international guests are looked after at all times and any problems can be addressed quickly and effectively. A full copy of the Code is available here, on the NZQA website.
In addition, the College’s own programmes of pastoral care ensure the welfare of all students is paramount. Tutors keep a close watch on the academic and personal progress of every student in their group, while Deans, Principals and Counsellors are available to help if problems arise. And, of course, members of the International Department take a special interest in the progress and wellbeing of international students.
While you are at St Andrew’s College you are part of our family, and we will look after you accordingly!
