Course Start Dates:

▪ 15 February 2024

▪ 25 July 2024

There are 2 intakes every year.

Eligibility Requirement:

▪ A minimum of 12 months of sea service as a Deck Cadet on vessels > 500 GRT whilst completing an approved Training Record Book (TRB). The following are the approved TRB’s in New Zealand:


DG Shipping, India TRB


(IMA Chennai Students: Please note that IMA Chennai TRB is not accepted by Maritime New Zealand. Hence, you are advised to fill the ISF Training Record Book on ship or the DG Shipping, India TRB if you wish to do your exams in New Zealand. If you have already signed off from the ship, please purchase an ISF TRB and get the tasks signed by your company superintendent. Then, you will need to submit both the IMA Chennai TRB and the ISF TRB when booking a seat in the college.

Diploma in Nautical Science (DNS) and BSc Nautical Science pre-sea courses from India are not approved by the MCA, UK. Hence, students who have done the DNS or BSc Nautical Science course also need to complete a minimum of 36 months of sea service on merchant ships before they can give the 2nd Mates exams in the UK. New Zealand offers them a chance to do the 2nd Mates CoC after 12 months of sea service).

The conditional offer letter will come by email in about 3 weeks’ time after submission of all documents to the college.

There is no payment to be made to the college for getting your admission letter from the college.

    Tuition Fees:

    NZ$ 25,904.

    This includes your STCW advanced courses and GMDSS course. It however does not include TANKER COURSES which you can do from India itself from BP Marine, Mumbai or HIMT, Chennai which offer the MCA, UK approved tanker courses. DG Shipping, India tanker courses are not accepted by Maritime New Zealand (MNZ).

    The NMIT course tuition fees must be paid in full after receiving your conditional visa from Immigration New Zealand (INZ). On submitting the tuition fees receipt to the visa office by email, you get the unconditional visa by email from Immigration New Zealand (INZ). The tuition fees are transferred from your bank account directly to the college electronically and are called wire transfer. 

    There are no scholarships or installment facilities available and the full academic course tuition fees must be paid before you can get your final unconditional visa.

    Visa Duration:

    The length of visa that you get is 12 months.


    Students stay off campus in Nelson. We will give you telephone number of some landlords whom you can get in touch with. Expected monthly expense for food and accommodation will be around NZ$ 1,000 per month on a conservative budget when living in a shared house in Nelson. A typical house will have 4 rooms and each student will have one room for  himself. The washroom and kitchen are shared amenities. Students buy the groceries, cook food at home and divide the cost amongst themselves. NMIT does not have any hostel facilities and students are responsible for arranging their own accommodation.

    Part Time Work:

    You can work 20 hours per week during term-time and full-time during vacations like Christmas. 

    The minimum pay in New Zealand is NZ$ 22.70 per hour. By working part-time at the minimum wage in NZ, you can earn up to NZ$ 1,800 per month which will offset the money you spend every month on your living expenses. In difficult times like Covid , recession, etc., part-time work may dry up and hence you should have your own funds rather than relying on part-time work for your sustenance in New Zealand.

    Students work part-time in Mc Donalds, KFC, pizza delivery shops, food takeaway shops, departmental stores as cashiers / helpers, security guards, etc.

    Total Expenses:

    Here we will calculate all total expenses over 12 months stay in Nelson, New Zealand.

    ▪ Tuition Fees: NZ$ 25,904

    ▪ Flight Ticket: NZ$ 2,500

    ▪ Visa Fees: NZ$ 430

    ▪ Living Expenses for 12 months @ NZ$ 1,000 per month = NZ$ 12,000

    ▪ MNZ fees: NZ$ 1,000

    ▪ Miscellaneous: NZ$ 1,000

    Total: NZ$ 42,834

    (Approx INR 21.40 Lakhs @ 1Nz$ = INR 50)

    By working part-time 20 hours per week, you earn Nz$1,800 per month. Assuming you worked part-time for 10 months, you earned: NZ$18,000. Some months you may be working full-time for e.g., during vacations and earn double the money that you earn by working part-time, but we have not considered that. 

    So net expense = NZ$ (42,834 – 18,000) = NZ$ 24,834 (approx. 12.40 Lakhs INR).

    If you are working on tankers and need to get a tanker DCE, add an extra NZ$ 1,000 i.e., INR 50,000 for the tanker course and MNZ fees for endorsement on your CoC.

    Visa Procedure:

    ▪ We will assist you with the visa procedure.

    ▪ As the visa procedure is totally online now, we can assist you even if you are residing in other countries for e.g., Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Burma, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, etc.

    ▪ The visa processing time is 4 – 6 weeks. At times it can take longer also if the rush at the visa office is more or some visa offices shut down due to Covid, floods, strikes / riots, etc.

    ▪ NMIT Nelson will issue the unconditional offer letter (visa letter) after you have submitted the IELTS (or PTE) Academic test result. There are no tuition fees to be paid to the college to get the visa letter.

    ▪ The total funds to be shown for the NZ student visa are as given below:

    Tuition Fees: NZ$ 25,904 

    Living expenses: NZ$ 20,000

    Flight Travel: NZ$ 2,000

    Visa Fees: NZ$430

    Total: NZ$ 48,334. This is approximately 24.20 Lakhs INR if NZ$ = 50 INR.

    ▪ The funds can be shown by your parents, your spouse, your in laws and your own brother / sister. Your Uncle / Aunt / Relatives / Friends, etc., cannot show the money on your behalf.

    ▪ You can show money as cash savings in bank account from salary, fixed deposits > 6 months old, educational loan / personal loan or a mix of the above.

    ▪ If you are taking a gold loan or selling property / car, showing agricultural income, then the funds must be kept for a minimum of 6 months before they can be shown for the NZ visa. The reason being that it is difficult for Immigration New Zealand to verify the authenticity of these income and hence you will be asked to keep this money for 6 months in your bank account before you can show for the NZ student visa. Even then, there is a possibility that the visa officer may not accept this as a genuine source of funds.

    ▪ If you have funds but are not able to show the documentary evidence of the source of this money for e.g., agricultural income, there is a FUND TRANSFER SCHEME for NZ visa, wherein you can inform the visa officer in the online visa application form that you will transfer the full living expenses to a New Zealand bank account before being offered an unconditional visa. It is then up to the visa officer whether to accept or not accept that money for visa purposes.

    ▪ We do assist students from India in processing of educational loan / personal loan. Although loans are never guaranteed we are able to get loans processed for 70% of our applicants.

    ▪ You must do a NZ visa approved medical. We will guide you with that procedure.

    ▪ We will send you a sample filled up visa form so that you can use that as a reference to fill up your online visa application form. We will then login to your online account to check the visa form that you have filled. Then you will upload all the necessary documents online. We will ask you to send PDF files of all documents to be uploaded on the visa website to us on WhatsApp to check before you upload the documents. After uploading the documents, you will pay the NZ student visa fees of NZ$ 430 using your debit / credit card. It will take up to 4 hours to complete the online visa form, upload all the documents and pay the visa fees. All of this can be done from the comfort of your home as the procedure is totally online. Only for the NZ visa medical do you have to move out of your house. The visa submission rules w.r.t. submission of passport and biometrics may vary a little from country to country.

    The visa procedure is simple. The problem that students usually face is in arranging the show money for NZ student visa as you cannot show borrowed money from friends / relatives. Also unaccounted money must be kept for 6 months (which may still not be accepted by the visa officer) or you have to opt for the Funds Transfer Scheme (FTS).

    If applying for an educational loan / personal loan, do contact us soon after signing off from the ship. The longer you stay at home after signing off, the more difficult it becomes to avail yourself of a loan from the bank.
