Studying in New Zealand – Things to Know

Studying in New Zealand – Things to Know

Study in New Zealand

We all know New Zealand is a beautiful country, but there’s a lot beyond its picturesque landscapes. It is emerging as one of the topmost preferences among Indian students wanting to study abroad. With an excellent education system, internationally accredited qualifications, ample research opportunities and a matchless quality of life, New Zealand has a lot to offer. While studying here, you can be assured of a welcoming and friendly society with an excellent support system for international students. Here are some important points about what international students should know when embarking on studies in New Zealand.

Globally recognized qualifications

All eight universities of New Zealand consistently rank high in QS World Rankings and Times Higher Education Rankings, and qualifications from any of these are accredited across the globe, opening doors to prospects everywhere. The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) also ensures that institutions are registered to enroll international students and comply with qualifications standards.

Work while studying

To help defray the high living costs, most university students have a part-time job. Those holding a full-time student visa can work 20 hours during the school term and 40 hours during holidays.

Build your resume by seeking a job related to your major. If your faculty has a close relationship with the industry, it can be a good source of insight and introductions. Leverage them to find work – especially since “local experience” and “local references” are quite important to New Zealand employers.

Innovation and research

New Zealand provides abundant opportunities in research for students. The country boasts of highly experienced faculty, well-equipped laboratories, access to latest technology, equipments, and opportunities. Its innovative spirit has made it a hub of new technologies, research and development in various fields such as healthcare, physics, geology, engineering, astronomy, computer science, agriculture, etc. Add to it, the Nobel prizes that the country has in its kitty simply reinstate the significance and vast scope of research in New Zealand.

Great scope for PhD scholars

Along with the vast research opportunities, as a PhD student you would enjoy additional privileges. You’ll be eligible to pay the same tuition fee as locals and unlike other degree students, you can work full-time during your studies

Quality of life

New Zealand offers a wonderful multi-cultural environment that exists in perfect harmony with the country’s outdoorsy lifestyle. Replete with all kinds of natural landscapes ranging from snow capped mountains and steaming volcanoes to rolling green hills, golden sandy beaches and lush rainforests, New Zealand screams wanderlust. Living here provides every student a chance to grow with its diverse culture and natural beauty all at once.

Accommodation alternatives

To build friendships with Kiwis and other students, opt for university accommodation for a period of time. Moreover, these facilities are usually conveniently located close to the city centre.

Once you have built up a solid social circle, you can choose to venture out into the suburbs, which generally offer better air and more space. Flatting (renting a flat with others) is common in New Zealand, and the most popular place to seek out a cool flat.

Student Life in Australia

Student Life in Australia


Hi There,

Hope you are doing good.

In our last post, we got to know about the general lifestyle in Australia. Let us know about how welcoming Australia is for International students.

Student Life in Australia

Australia has fascinated students for a long list of reasons but the topmost is the lifestyle it promises. With colleges ranking amongst the Top 100 of the world, the Universities of Australia have seen a definitive increase in their international student numbers in recent years.

While this attracts many international student, let us know about other factors involved to make your decision.

Cost of Study

The island country Australia is attracting more and more international students from all around the globe. Some of the top universities and colleges in the world are located in Australia and thus, Australia is becoming the new favorite among students. But how much does education in Australia costs? The tuition fee differs from university to university as well as the type of program and course you opt for.

Cost of Living

Australia ranks amongst the top 10 in the Human Development Index as well as the Quality of Life Index. In simple words, a developed nation, Australia is amongst the top countries of the world in terms of its education system, the GDP and purchasing power parity indexes. With a high level of incomes, it also enjoys a high level of health awareness, an excellent medical system as well as a politically stable economy.

But as a student, these are hardly the indices you would wish to worry about. What matters is how much it would cost to stay in Australia. So, here’s the above jargon simplified to numbers per month


Type of Boarding Cost of Boarding
Hostels and Guesthouses AUD 90 – 150 per week
Shared Rental AUD 95 – 215 per week
On-campus AUD 110 – 280 per week

Other living costs

While accommodations costs form the large share of expenditures under living expenses, other costs under the cost of living in Australia include:

Components Costs
Groceries and eating out AUD 140 – 280 per week
Gas, electricity AUD 10 – 20 per week
Phone and Internet AUD 15 – 30 per week
Public transport AUD 30 – 60 per week

Working while studying

Australian Immigration Laws are comparatively easy when it comes to working while studying. Though the rules might vary, generally students are allowed to work for up to 40 weeks in a year.

Companies, local businesses, and retail shops often hire students (both domestic and international). As an international student, you are protected by the same labour laws as the domestic student populace which also means the minimum wages. As a student, you can expect around $17 per hour (rough estimates).

The kinds of jobs are also varied. There are both on-campus jobs as well as local jobs available and often universities have an office which would help you find the right one for you.

Once you graduate, you stay in Australia for 18 months to four years, depending on your qualification. In order to stay, you will need a Graduate Temporary Skilled Visa (subclass 485).
