About Scots Online
Covid-19 has resulted in significant disruption for students around the world, with many either having to return home early, defer or cancel study plans. New Zealand’s success in controlling the spread of the COVID-19 makes it an attractive and safe study destination for international students. Institutions are now working with the government on developing options for a managed border entry that would allow international students to return in a controlled way. There is no current time frame for this, but we are hopeful that the borders will open during 2021 and students will be able to join / re-join Scots College during that academic year. Scots Online provides the platform to bridge the gap for young people and is a solution for independent students waiting for the opportunity to resume / start their schooling in New Zealand.
