Why Study in New Zealand

High quality living conditions

While living and studying in New Zealand, you can afford great, modern, accommodation that is few minutes away from world-class study facilities. Public transport systems are good and cars are affordable. After hours, a recreational wonderland is right on your doorstep. You can enjoy the freshest food of all types, cool cafes, markets, quality boutique shopping, theatres and art galleries.
A qualification from New-Zealand University ranks with the best in the world. In a small country and in small classes, students have the rare advantage of one-on-one access to tutors- many of whom are internationally experts in their fields. A degree from a New Zealand Institution is seen as internationally desirable because students have high level of practical as well as theoretical competency when they graduate.
Cost of living is much lower in New Zealand as compared to many other popular international student destinations. This makes the country accessible to students having low spending power.
New Zealand will help you improve on your English language skills since everyone speaks English. You will also learn their colloquialism and unique culture along the way.
International students studying in New Zealand have the opportunity to work while they study. Students may be permitted to work up to 20 hours each week during study periods or full time on the holidays, depending on their programme of study.
New Zealand degrees have a reputation for being practical, modern and desirable. In some niche areas such as biotechnology, forensic science, marine engineering and food science and technology New Zealand degrees are best in the world.
Mountains, fjords, glaciers, beaches filled with giant perfectly rounded rocks; with New Zealand you start to think that Peter Jackson toned down the scenery for his movies. Nothing can describe how breathtaking this country is.
Did you know that the Maoris (Native people of New Zealand) invented Bungee Jumping? Did you know Dir Edmund Hilary, the first man to summit Mount Everest, was a Kiwi (person from New Zealand)? Want to go on a bungee jump where you free fall for 8 seconds? Want to take a giant spinning swing off a cliff? Hang gliding peek your interest? Jet boating? White water rafting? Or just a good old fashion sky dive? This is where you need to be.
Currently, the exchange rate of the New Zealand dollar is much better than a number of countries across the world.
After graduation, there is the opportunity to work in New Zealand by applying for a post-study work visa. New Zealand is open to provide Permanent Resident status to International Students that meet their criteria.

Visa information

INZ is the sole agency of the NZ Government responsible for migration & entry to NZ. The student visa is required to enter the country to study a course of more than 3 months duration, also the course opted for should be offered by education institutions approved & registered with NZQA. The student is issued a visa for One-year duration which can easily be extended from within New Zealand depending on the further duration of the course.

While studying students can work part-time (20 hours per week) and during breaks they can work full time ie 40 hours per week.

If the program opted for is Level 7 or above, students are eligible to apply for 1 year Post Study Work Search Visa / Graduate Job Search Visa. During this duration, if the student manages to find a job in his area of study, he can apply for a further 2 years work permit (known as Graduate Experience Class Visa).

Generally, for Level 8 students, spouses are allowed to work full time. In special cases (selected programs), even the spouse of students studying Level 7 programs can work full time. In other cases, spouses can accompany the students only on a visitor visa and are not allowed to work.


How much does it cost to study in New Zealand?

Tuition fees for international students vary between $22,000 and $32,000 for a bachelor's degree, and between $26,000 and $37,000 for a postgraduate course. However, if you choose a course such as medicine, engineering or veterinary science, your fees are likely to be higher.

You can apply for a visa to work in New Zealand for up to 3 years after you finish your study if you have an acceptable qualification. A Post-study work visa lasts for 1, 2 or 3 years depending on the level of your qualification and where you studied

In recent few years it has become quite difficult to get a PR in New Zealand due to the increasing population of immigrants. For a student who has completed his studies from New Zealand, the first step towards granting of a PR is the 2-year post-study visa. Mark our words, its the first step and not a sure shot way to get the PR. This visa would allow you to hunt for a job and work in the country for 2 years initially.

Business Studies, Social Sciences, Mathematics and Computer Science are the generally popular courses, however engineering, medicine and hospitality are also favored because of the job prospects.

There are no age limits to getting a student visa in New Zealand.
