New Zealand has eight universities and a multitude of other post-secondary educational institutions including institutes of technology and Polytechniques. New Zealand universities feature in the QS Work University Rankings as well as the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. Given that New Zealand is small and not very densely populated, this shows that in the education sector New Zealand’s status is higher than a country with a population of 5 million. Some universities in New Zealand are connected and competing with their counterparts in Australia.

Whether you are thinking of higher academic achievements in your field, studying English, or gaining proficiency in a vocational/practical skill, New Zealand is an ideal destination to offer you quality education, in a safe and diverse environment, where the first language is English.

As per the INZ regulation, you can get a student visa for the length of the course, or the portion of which you have paid for already, whichever is shorter. You will need an offer of place form your education provider, and you will need NZD 15,000 for living costs. You need to show INZ evidence of your funds and onward travel. Your English language capability must be on par with an Academic IELTS score of 6 or higher for non-English courses.

International Qualification assessment

If you need to assess your overseas qualification to be able to continue your study or work in New Zealand, you need to have your qualification assessed by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority. Have a look at the website below for more details

Given the new rules and regulations in effect for the international qualifications assessment, and the importance of the correct assessment for your profession (especially if you are on the Long Term Skills Shortage List), it is best to consult us BEFORE lodging your application with the NZQA. Otherwise, INZ may not accept your assessment for LTSSL. Fill our assessment form so we can discuss your needs with you.
