    Re: Filipino trying to be a PT in New Zealand

    Hi. The registration process for New Zealand does seem to be complex at first but it's really not. It's just very subjective and you have to provide detailed information, which can make it look daunting.
    I'll try to break it down for you:
    First, you need to look at the forms given for overseas applicants on the New Zealand Physiotherapy Board's website. There's an application pack of about 9 documents, which also contains guiding documents to tell you how to fill the forms.
    Read those forms and guidance notes and ensure that you have the required IELTS/OET score as well as the necessary documents at hand, e.g. your passport, physiotherapy degree, transcript, curriculum, etc.
    Once you are certain that you have the necessary documents and fulfill the requirements, you can start filling out the forms using the guidance notes for help.

    If you can be a bit more specific about the particular thing you're having difficulty with, I might be able to provide more help.

    Hi,
    the Physio Board has got a great self-evaluation tool.
    I would start there.

    Thank you! I have already seen the documents and have completed my IELTS with a band of 8 and lowest being a 7. I am going to submit my application once my school has provided the rest of the documents. My concern as of the moment isn't with the process anymore but with the sufficiency of my degree. The application fee was quite expensive and I am sure studying would be expensive as well. Thank you!
