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 VisaEverything you need to know about Canadian Student Visa

 

Why Canadian student visa? Because it is one of the best countries to study in. It’s a popular opinion from the international students who studied in Canada.

How long can you stay in Canada with a study permit?

A study permit is usually valid for the length of your study program, plus an extra 90 days. The 90 days let you prepare to leave Canada or apply to extend your stay.

1. If you are taking prerequisite courses

If your school asks you to take courses before they accept you into the main program (you have conditional acceptance), your study permit will be valid for the length of those courses, plus 1 year. When you get accepted into the main program, you must then apply to extend your stay as a student.

2. If you finish your studies after your study permit expires

If you don’t finish your courses before the date on your permit, you must apply to extend your stay as a student. Incase if you don’t, you need to stop studying and leave Canada.

3. If you finish your studies before your study permit expires

If you finish your studies early, your permit will stop being valid 90 days after you complete your studies, no matter what day is printed on the study permit.

Prerequisites to apply for study permit:

  • Should be enrolled at a designated learning institution (DLI)
  • Prove that you have enough money to pay for your:
    • Tuition fees
    • Living expenses for yourself and any family members who come with you to Canada and
    • Return transportation for yourself and any family members who come with you to Canada
  • Obey the law, have no criminal record and get a police certificate (if required)
  • You are in good health and get a medical exam (if required)
  • Prove to an officer that you will leave Canada when your study permit expires

Working while you study in Canada

If you like to get a part-time job to help support yourself while studying in Canada, you can now qualify to work on or off-campus for up to 20 hours during university semesters and full-time during breaks such as the winter or summer holidays, without the need for a work permit.

To qualify, you must:

  • Have a valid study permit
  • Be a full-time student
  • Enrolled at a designated learning institution at post-secondary level or, in Quebec, a vocational program at secondary level
  • Studying in an academic, vocational or professional training program that leads to a degree, diploma or certificate that is at least six months in duration.

You will also need a Social Insurance Number (SIN) from Service Canada to work in Canada or to receive benefits and services from government programs.

Study permit will become invalid 90 days after you have completed your study program, so you will need to acquire a post-graduation work permit if you want to stay in Canada after your studies and seek work. This is valid for three years.
