Each university sets its own requirements in New Zealand, so the IELTS band score you'll need may depend on the institution you hope to study in.

According to one of my friends who applied to study in New Zealand, though, the band requirements are usually between 5.0 and 6.5.

For those of you who don't know, IELTS stands for the 'International English Language Testing System'. It is a band-based system that helps institutions gauge a foreign-language student's ability to communicate in English.

Although certain countries use IELTS scores as a tool for filtering immigration, the official New Zealand immigration site clearly states that the country doesn't set such requirements for foreign students.

Rather, they leave it up to the school or university to judge whether a student should be eligible to study on their course, and then immigration is based on being successfully accepted on to a course.
