Semester 1 and 2 last for 15 weeks and summer term lasts for 8 weeks. Semester 1 runs from April to July, semester 2 from August to December and summer term from January to March. The semester starts with an academic and informational two/three-day orientation event, that the students should attend.

Students can arrive at IPU New Zealand within a week before the 1st orientation day, earlier arrival can be discussed on a case-by-case basis. Each student shall inform IPU New Zealand of their arrival date at Palmerston North domestic airport as soon as they have received their student visa, so a representative of IPU can meet you there and bring to the campus. On arrival each student will be welcomed to their new accommodation, checked in to their room and given a tour of the campus and the orientation pack. Statutory public holidays can be found in the academic calendar.
