What are the benefits of studying in New Zealand?

  • As a safe, tolerant and politically-stable country with a high standard of living, New Zealand is an ideal place to study
  • New Zealand qualifications are internationally respected and recognised
  • Living and studying in New Zealand offers excellent value for money with competitive tuition fees and living expenses compared to other English-speaking destinations
  • Opportunities for employment on graduation
  • New Zealand’s education system is based on the prestigious British system. We offer world-class facilities, resources and teaching staff. Our qualifications are valued and are transferable throughout the world
  • New Zealand’s universities perform very highly on a global level. Many feature in international university rankings such as the Times Higher Education Supplement Top 500
  • In New Zealand, every student enjoys a supportive learning environment. With relatively small class sizes, students receive more personalized attention from their teachers than they do in many other parts of the world
  • Students are treated as individuals – you are encouraged to learn from others but also to think for yourself. You will learn how to harness your unique strengths and original ideas and channel them into an exciting career
  • For international students, this personalized treatment extends beyond the classroom. New Zealand was the first country to adopt a strict code of practice that sets out the standards for the care of international students, in and out of the classroom
  • As an international student in New Zealand you will enjoy a sophisticated lifestyle and high quality, affordable education
  • For clients wishing to study in New Zealand we have contracts with leading institutions, including Primary Schools, High Schools, English Language Schools, Foundation Course providers, Polytechnics, Universities and Private Training Establishments. We work with both government and private providers and can recommend the best educational pathways for clients. If you start working with us we will help you in whatever way is necessary to achieve your educational goals and beyond
  • Students can continue on in New Zealand after they successfully complete certain level qualifications; first on a one-year post-study ‘open’ work visa (no restriction on the type of job obtained), and then, if they can find a job relevant to their qualifications, stay on an ’employer assisted’ work visa for a further two years. This can lead to longer-term work visas and then to residence if certain conditions are met
