There are very few colleges that allow you to take admission without IELTS score provided you have a good score in English. But again, this varies from university to university..

However,the colleges that does not require IELTS score are not as competitive as the ones that require it. So, I would recommend you to take the exam so as to get admitted into a good university.

You can study in New Zealand without doing IELTS or any other test if you can clear one of the 2 conditions - either you should have done your schooling from an english medium school or you can give an english placement test conducted by the college at the agent office which you have to clear. If you can clear one of the 2 above conditions you don't need to do IELTS or TOEFL. Regards Almasto Kapoor

Hovever there are some abroad universities thatdon't ask for TOEFL/IELTS scores, some universites also grant admission to non-english speaking international students on the condition that they take proficency tests like Intensive English Language Program (IELP).
