Why Study In New Zealand?

Life in New Zealand

New Zealand is one of the world's most secure and welcoming countries, ranking second as the most peaceful country and widely regarded as the least corrupt country. New Zealand is home to different indigenous forests, snowy mountains, beaches, beautiful lakes, and fjords. In the presence of these adventurous places, adrenaline-pumping activities are available both on and off the ground. While staying in New Zealand, you can also see the gorgeous locations of "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" movies.

Culture and Customs

Adapting to new social behaviour might be challenging when you relocate to a new place, but with patience, you will ultimately get there. The New Zealanders are respectable and reserved in personal matters but open to new experiences. Food and camaraderie go hand in hand in New Zealand; thus, bringing food or wine to an occasion is rather typical.


English is the predominant language spoken in New Zealand, but the country's official language is Maori. However, Maori is at risk of extinction as it is not utilised in the country. Apart from Maori, sign language is declared as another official language in New Zealand as it is the principal language for the deaf community.

Choose your study and plan for the future.

Students receive high-quality education to help them reach their goals and, at the same time, have the opportunity to develop their workplace skills, creativity, and innovation. There are numerous educational options available throughout New Zealand. In addition, workplace experience fosters communion, teamwork, and time management skills, all of which are minimum legal rights in New Zealand.

Part-time and Post-study Work Opportunities 

For international students, working while studying abroad is highly typical. For students, time management for job and study is crucial because certain Universities only allow a certain amount of hours that students can work during term time. Some organisations and businesses also specialise in providing students with part-time and temporary employment.

Working on a Student Visa

  • Part-time employment: If your course is at least two years in duration and full-time, or if you qualify for New Zealand's Skilled Migrant Category, you can work 20 hours a week.
  • Full-time work: If your course is at least a year-long, consists of 120 credits, and is spread over eight months, you can work full-time during study breaks. 
  • If enrolled in a doctoral degree programme and have completed at least 8 months of full-time study, including PhD and Masters by Research programmes, you can work full-time over the holidays. 

Post-Study Work Opportunities

Post-work visas are extendable for up to three years with the proper credentials.

  • If you currently hold a Post Study Work Visa (Open): You may reapply to extend it for an additional two years if your application is accepted before November 26, 2018.
  • If you already possess an employer-sponsored Post Study Work Visa: If you have been accepted before November 26, 2018, you can choose to have a job, employer, and location deleted and work practically anywhere as an employer.
  • Staying longer: You can apply for a second Post-study work visa if you complete a level 7 Bachelor's degree that took 30 weeks to complete and earned a higher degree than the first.

Routes to Permanent Settlement 

If a person meets one of the following requirements, they will be eligible to settle permanently in New Zealand:

  • Skilled Migrant Category Resident Visa: The economy of New Zealand is willing to embrace anyone with the necessary talents to support continued expansion. You must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI), which briefly describes your application, work experience, and qualifications, to apply for this Visa. If this is approved, you will receive it.
  • Partner of a New Zealander Resident Visa: If your partner is a New Zealand citizen, you can apply for permanent residency with an unrestricted base in employment and education.

Other Visas

  • Long-Term Skill Shortage List Work Visa: If you have been employed in any part of New Zealand for two years, you may apply for residency as long as the authorities are satisfied with your specific work history, educational background, and ability to fill a position on the Long Term Skill Shortage List.
  • Long-Term Skill Shortage List Resident Visa: To qualify for a resident visa, you must have worked in New Zealand for over two years while holding a position on the Long-Term Skill Shortage List and earning at least NZD 45,000 per year.
  • Talent (Accredited Employer) Work Visa: If you are given a full-time employment offer and continue working for the next two years, you can apply for a permanent residency.
