Study in Newzeland
NEW ZEALAND is one of the world’s best places to live and study. Discover our internationally-renowned education system and unbeatable lifestyle. New Zealand is a small country, similar in size to Great Britain or Japan. With a population of only four million people, it’s also gloriously uncrowded.
New Zealand has a largely temperate climate. While the far north has subtropical weather during summer, and inland alpine areas of the South Island can be as cold as -10 C in winter, most of the country lies close to the coast, which means mild temperature, moderate rainfall and abundant sunshine.
NZ EDUCATION SYSTEM
The system is a three-tier model which includes primary and intermediate schools, followed by secondary schools (high schools) and tertiary education at universities. New Zealand has eight state-funded universities, 16 Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs) and about 550 Private Training Establishments (PTEs), which includes English language schools.
FINANCIAL CAPACITY REQUIREMENTS
You need to have enough money that is genuinely available to you, to pay for your course fees, your travel and living costs and your accompanying family members while you are in Newzealand. If you do not provide this evidence of financial capacity with your application or when asked by an officer, your student visa application could be refused.

WORK OPTIONS & FUTURE PLACEMENTS
Plenty of work opportunities are available for international students studying in New Zealand, including internships and other practical work. This helps the student to earn money while studying as well as learn the way of life and integrate into the community.
WORK WHILE STUDY
In New Zealand, international students (pursuing a minimum 2 years study course) can work up to 20 hours/week during the semester and more in the vacations. The international studies office at your university will assist you in finding a job during your study course.
WORK AFTER COMPLETING COURSE
After the completion of the study course, students are eligible for a ‘Graduate Job Search Work Visa’ for a maximum of 12 months in which you can work full time in any job and look for a job in your study field. Once you have a full time job in your area of education, your work visa gets extended by 2 years. Permanent migration and residency is also available for students who have studied and have work permit in New Zealand.
AVERAGE INCOME IN NEWZEALAND
New Zealand offers job opportunities in many areas due to skill shortages across many sectors. Salaries for graduates may vary from 12-21 lacs in the fields of art, architecture, natural and physical sciences and 15-23 lacs in the fields of engineering, education, healthcare, IT, management and commerce. Statistics show a median salary of around 18-19 lacs for post-graduate students.
