About New Zealand

map3 276x300 min - About New Zealand
New Zealand is an island country located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises two main landmasses ‒ that of the North and South Islands ‒ and numerous smaller islands. New Zealand is situated some 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometers (600 mi) south of the Pacific island nations of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. Agriculture is the economic mainstay, but manufacturing and tourism are important and there is a world-class film industry.

With a mild maritime climate, the land was mostly covered in forest. New Zealand’s spectacularly beautiful landscape includes vast mountain chains, steaming volcanoes, sweeping coastlines, deeply indented fiords and lush rainforests. It is a haven for those seeking peace, rejuvenation and relaxation. A temperate maritime climate with relatively small seasonal variation makes it an ideal year-round holiday destination. The average maximum temperature ranges from 20-30°C / 68-86 F.

New Zealand populationl min - About New Zealand
Polynesians settled New Zealand in 1250–1300 CE and developed a distinctive Māori culture. In 1840 the British and Māori signed a treaty making New Zealand a colony of the British Empire. Immigrant numbers increased sharply and conflicts escalated into the New Zealand Wars, which resulted in much Māori land being confiscated in the mid North Island. After World War II, New Zealand joined Australia and the United States in the ANZUS security treaty, although the United States later suspended the treaty. New Zealanders enjoyed one of the highest standards of living in the world in the 1950s, but the 1970s saw a deep recession, worsened by oil shocks and the United Kingdom’s entry into the European Economic Community. The country underwent major economic changes during the 1980s, which transformed it from a protectionist to a liberalised free trade economy; once-dominant exports of wool have been overtaken by dairy products, meat, and wine.

The majority of New Zealand’s population is of European descent; the indigenous Māori are the largest minority, followed by Asians and non-Māori Polynesians. English, Māori and New Zealand Sign Language are the official languages, with English predominant. The country’s culture has also been broadened by globalization and increased immigration from the Pacific Islands and Asia. The New Zealand’s diverse landscape provides many opportunities for outdoor pursuits and has provided the backdrop for a number of big budget movies.

New Zealand is organized into 11 regional councils and 67 territorial authorities for local government purposes; these have less autonomy than the country’s long defunct provinces did. Nationally, executive political power is exercised by the Cabinet, led by the Prime Minister. Queen Elizabeth II is the country’s head of state and is represented by a Governor-General. The Queen’s Realm of New Zealand also includes Tokelau (a dependent territory); the Cook Islands and Niue (self-governing but in free association); and the Ross Dependency, which is New Zealand’s territorial claim in Antarctica. New Zealand is a member of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, Commonwealth of Nations, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, Pacific Islands Forum, and the United Nations.

Why study in New Zealand?

New Zealand is famous for its amazing scenery and a fun place to visit and a superb study destination.

The countryside is unique and quite spectacular, from rolling green hills to golden sand beaches then lush rainforests, all within a few hours drive. The climate in New Zealand is temperate with relatively mild, wet winters, with temperature between 10 and 15ºC, and warm, dry summers where temperatures range from 20 to 30ºC. The summer months are December, January, February, and the winter months are June, July and August.

New Zealand has an international reputation as a provider of quality education. It offers a safe learning environment which provides excellent study opportunities and support services for international students. Courses are available for academic, professional and vocational studies at universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, secondary schools and private training establishments. New Zealanders are well travelled, with a great interest in people from other cultures, so visitors and international students soon feel more than welcome. Campuses are highly international, with students from all corners of the globe studying and socializing together. New Zealand offers a progressive education to help students take a leading place in the exciting global environment, with many New Zealanders working internationally or involved in collaborative research with many prestigious overseas universities.

There are many state-of-the-art facilities, and with many institutions spearheading several new technological developments, students have access to more advanced technology than they could wish for. As a result, New Zealand produces top graduates who can take their place in the international arena with confidence. Thousands of students choose to study here, to further their English, broaden their knowledge and improve their job prospects in the global marketplace.

There is a lot more to New Zealand than just an excellent education system though! New Zealand has a reputation as the ‘adventure capital of the world’ so if you are an extreme sportsperson, there are many opportunities to participate in extreme sports. This beautiful recreational paradise in the south pacific has become a preferred study destination for many international students due to the following reasons: –

  • This country of just over 4 million people is an easy going and one of the safest places on this earth with high quality living conditions and a modern lifestyle. New Zealand has never seen war on its own shores and crime here is extremely low compared to America and Europe. The New Zealand government is also very stable and the New Zealanders are very outward looking and welcoming of new cultures.
  • The New Zealand education programs and degrees are based on the worlds most recognized and accredited education system- The British System- without the same expense.
  • New Zealand qualifications are of a high quality and have a reputation around the world for being practical, modern and desired. All courses, programs and qualifications offered by New Zealand institutions are quality assured by the New Zealand government. Major employers around the world recognize New Zealand qualifications and employ New Zealand graduates.
  • New Zealand offers very affordable tuition fee compared with many other countries around the world. Competitive tuition fees coupled with a low cost of living represents a good value for your money.
  • New Zealand has a dynamic and harmonious multicultural society. Kiwis are friendly and pleasant and are opening their doors to offer you warm and welcoming environments. International students are highly respected in New Zealand and you will feel most welcome here.
  • New Zealand has a long history of teaching international students and New Zealand institutions are sensitive to the needs of international students. The “International Office” in tertiary institutions provides a high quality support service to help you adjust to your new environment and successfully complete your studies.
  • From the rugged mountains to the sandy beaches New Zealand is a land of great variety. This is also true of educational and cultural programs on offer to international students. Although New Zealand has a population of only 4.3 million and is similar in geographical size to the U.K. and Japan, its breathtaking scenery sets it apart from the rest of the world. New Zealand offers exciting landscape and recreational opportunities as well as great outdoors to treasure.
  • All students on a student visa can work up to 20 hours per week during semester and full time during vacations i.e. 40 hours. Many New Zealand institutions offer a student employment service called ‘Student Job Search’ to help you find work.
  • If you complete your course successfully, you automatically get a 12 months ‘Work Permit’ under the student visa policy. In most instances this permit will be done at your institution itself. This allows you to work full time in any job of your choice. However if you want to get a New Zealand Permanent Residency (PR), then you have to find a job that is relevant to the course that you have completed. Eg: If you have completed a course in IT, then you have to find a job as a programmer, analyst, etc. This will immediately give you a 2 years work permit with all rights like free medical, etc. Upon receiving this 2 years work permit then you can apply for PR and normally will get it within 5-6 months. If you do not find a job that is relevant to your course, you can continue to work in any job for 12 months and try and recover some of the investment you have made towards your study in NZ. You will that way end up by recovering a bulk of the fees you have paid and also end up with an international experience which will come in handy if you have to return to India. There are plenty of jobs in NZ, and while it may not be easy to get one, if you are good enough, you will easily get one. For more information please visit www.immigration.govt.nz.
  • The Immigration Department of New Zealand NEVER rejects a visa application outright without giving you a chance to explain. Compare this with other countries who do not give you an opportunity to mention your side of the story. As long as you are able to explain clearly why you have chosen a particular course, there is no danger of not getting the visa. We will help you with the course selection that will enable you to create a good ‘Statement of Purpose’ (SOP) that will help the visa officer understand clearly and give a favorable decision.
  • Once you acquire your Permanent Residency and if you want to study further, then you become eligible for study loans from the Government of New Zealand. You can avail of these loans and pay after you complete the course. Your dependence your parents can stop after you get your PR. You can also continue to work as much as you like while pursuing your further studies after PR. The 20 hours per week restriction goes away.

With this unique combination of top quality education and top class services, why not become a top class student of new zealand.

Course Information

Courses, qualifications and levels

A course is a unit of study encompassing teaching, learning, research and/or assessment. Papers, unit standards and modules are examples of different types of courses. A course or collection of course forms a program of study which, if completed successfully, results in the award of a qualification.

A qualification is awarded to students when they have successfully completed a programme of study, which has been quality assured by a recognised quality assurance agency. You can find out more about qualifications from the NZQA website.

There are a number of qualification levels. The level you start at depends on the study and training you have completed either at school or post school.

The entry criteria vary from qualification to qualification and these may determine which one you choose. The different qualifications are:

  • Bridging programmes/ Foundation courses
  • Certificates
  • Diplomas
  • Degrees
  • Staircasing

Bridging programs/Foundation courses

Bridging courses are for people who haven’t achieved the required entry-level qualifications, or who are over 20 and unsure of their ability to cope with study and training. Bridging courses are commonly held in maths, English and science subjects get students up to speed for entry to a degree-entry qualification. Many providers also offer foundation courses so that prospective students can learn essay writing, study and time management skills or get a feel for a subject area.


A certificate usually requires one year of full-time study and training. Nationally recognized certificates usually have the same course content and structure at all tertiary providers.


A diploma normally requires two years of full-time study. It can follow on from a certificate or degree, or stand alone as a qualification.


A bachelor’s degree, which is may also be called an ‘undergraduate’ degree, usually requires at least three years full-time study. Bachelors degrees are theory-based and involve moving progressively from more basic study to more advanced levels in one or more subject areas. A bachelor’s degree can lead to postgraduate study – and one or more years of more advanced study for an honours or masters degree.


If you don’t have the grades to go straight into a degree or diploma course you may be able to staircase your way through study and training. For example, you may want to be an engineer but don’t have a university entrance qualification, so you complete a NZ Certificate in Engineering, move to a diploma course and then a degree. Many people use staircasing to make a fresh start to gain qualifications.

There are lots of different subject areas to choose from, and your choices may depend on what you studied at school, your interests or your proposed career path.

Visa Procedure

Visas for New Zealand Universities

You will need a New Zealand Student Visa to study for your degree, which allows you to attend a particular institution as a full-time student.

Requirements for a student visa in New Zealand

Before you apply, ensure that you understand the requirements that you need to meet, and the requirements that your course must meet.

The first essential is to have an offer of a place from a New Zealand education provider. The offer must include:

  • the name of the course and the minimum time required for completing it
  • proof that the course and course provider meet New Zealand’s requirements for international students
  • the amount of the fee for the complete course or, if the course is longer than one year, the annual fee
  • whether you have to pay course fees and whether the fees are domestic or foreign
  • whether you are studying full-time or part-time.

Your course must be approved by the NZQA.

You have to meet health and character requirements and prove to the immigration service that your intent is genuine.

Evidence of funds to support yourself

To gain your student visa or permit, you must prove that you can meet your living costs during your stay. Suitable evidence for this may include:

  • enough money held in New Zealand by you or on your behalf
  • an undertaking by another person to cover your accommodation and living costs (you must provide this before you leave for New Zealand)
  • an undertaking by a New Zealand sponsor to cover your accommodation and living costs, or
  • financial assistance available to you under aid programmes operated in New Zealand by a government agency.
  • Since a degree course lasts more than nine months, you’ll also need to show that you have access to:
  • NZ$10,000 per year to cover your costs during your stay in New Zealand, or
  • if you are a citizen of Samoa or Tonga, a written guarantee from a relative who is a New Zealand citizen or resident that they will cover your living costs.

Proof that you plan to leave

So that the immigration service can be sure you will leave New Zealand when you have finished your course of study, you will need to show how you will leave New Zealand.

For example, you might hold travel tickets out of New Zealand to a country you are allowed to enter, or evidence of enough money held in New Zealand, additional to the funds you’ll need for your living expenses.


You must have a passport that is valid for at least three months past the end of your intended stay.

Permit requirements during your stay

Once you have your student visa, you must meet certain conditions during your stay:

  • You must attend the place of study noted in your permit. However, you can apply to change your course or institution
  • You must be able to show that you are passing your course
  • You may only undertake work allowed by your student permit
  • You must obey New Zealand’s laws
  • You must stay in New Zealand only for the time allowed by your permit.If you break any of these conditions, your permit may be revoked.

Medical insurance

You must have appropriate and current medical and travel insurance while you’re studying in New Zealand.

Student permit holders are generally not eligible for publicly funded health and disability services.


When you apply for a student visa, you will need to pay a fee. This is currently £80 if you are applying from the UK.

Career Prospectus

New Zealand is a land of relatively open immigration policy, which drives in a good influx of people from foreign origin. Asians form an important minority group there, particularly Indians. This fact has not been received well by many New Zealanders as is evident from the statement of New Zealand First leader, Winston Peters who reportedly said, “We are being dragged into the status of an Asian colony and it is time that New Zealanders were placed first in their own country.”

When such is the mindset of the residents of New Zealand, it becomes paramount to analyze the situation & try to quest whether Indians get equal job opportunities after education in New Zealand or not.

“It’s not all a bed of roses living in New Zealand. Immigrants face huge challenges around gaining equal access to employment, and are finding that their friends and family are not excelling with the world’s elite achievers.”

The survey also unravels the fact that almost two in every three Indians groan about their wages being not in tandem with their education or skill set. “I did not get one promotion in the last ten years. I am in a catch-22 situation because my kids are schooling in New Zealand. Now I am unable to go back to India as I have to wait to finish schooling of my kids.”—says one of the respondents.

here is also a considerable percentage of Indians, who have not got access to any job in New Zealand after completing their education there. “My qualifications were approved by the subject of working with a New Zealand registered architect for 48 weeks but no architect wants to keep me even for free.”—says another respondent.

However, the survey does not only highlight the dark side of this issue. It also throws light on a section of the Indian community, which has struggled against this job discrimination & managed to carve a niche for themselves on the foreign land.

According to one of the successful Indians in New Zealand, “In the beginning, yes I felt my career was adversely affected. However, things have got better as the Kiwis became more aware that Indians could speak English and were hardworking, sincere and loyal.”

What are my chances of getting a job?

Depending on your particular career area, it can be challenging to find job opportunities in New Zealand and it may take some time to find suitable employment. However, there are certain career areas with shortage occupations and the government is actively seeking skilled workers from overseas for these areas. To find out what skills are needed, look at the long-term and immediate skill shortage lists on Immigration New Zealand
