New Zealand is one of the most picturesque and photogenic places on earth. A small island nation of just over 4.5 million people. The reason that many people enjoy going to New Zealand is because of its biodiversity. There are literally hundreds of animals that you can find throughout New Zealand that you cannot find anywhere else in the world, especially in terms of birds and marine life (mammals, fish).

Why Study in New Zealand?


... So why is New Zealand a reason for attraction for Indian students to study? Not only are there great opportunities to gain full time employment and permanent residency in New Zealand on completion of education but the public, private and vocational institutions offer topnotch facilities and teaching staff. These qualifications are valued throughout the world.

New Zealand's Ministry of Education operates a Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of international students.

This makes New Zealand the first country to have set out standards for the care of international students, and all institutions that take international students are dedicated to their welfare.

New Zealand gives you a chance to enjoy a varied lifestyle along with a safe and friendly environment to study.

  • New Zealand's educational institutions are highly regarded throughout the world with all New Zealand universities being featured in the QS World TOP 500 University Rankings.
  • The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) approves all courses and programs, which are offered.
  • New Zealand offers rich study exposure with a safe and clean environment.
  • Affordable tuition fees and living expenses when compared to other developed countries.

Kiwis are some of the most amazing, loving, and welcoming people that you will ever meet. If you are a stranger, a native New Zealander is going to treat you like you are a friend. They are used to meeting new people, first because they travel a lot themselves, and because a lot of people come to visit New Zealand as well. The culture on the islands is quite laid back and easy going, as well. So you’re not going to feel tense like you would if you went to a large city like London or New York City to study. There are just over 4 million people who reside on the country, and it is one of the safest places to live in the world. Another cool thing about the people is that there are so many kinds of people. For being such a small country, the diversity is greater than you see in many European countries.

Work Opportunities


There are plenty of work opportunities available for international students. On a student visa, you are allowed to work up to 20 hours a week through the semester; during vacations you can work up to 40 hours. You may even be able to nab internships and other practical work. The international studies office at your university can help you find a job to sustain you during your time in New Zealand. Another great thing is that you can get a permit at the end of your degree program and work for 12 months in the country under a special “work permit” that is alongside your student visa.
