Studying in New Zealand at a University or Tertiary Institution is a great way to migrate to New Zealand and obtain an internationally recognised qualification. Depending on the course of study, you can also work while you are studying, and potentially be granted an open work visa at conclusion of your studies so you can then actively seek full time work in New Zealand.
Why New Zealand?
Compared to most countries in the world, New Zealand offers a great work-life balance. That’s reflected time and time again in international surveys. Moving to New Zealand also means experiencing what many people describe as one of the greenest and most beautiful countries you could find. Just think of the scenery in Lord of The Rings or The Hobbit and you’ve got the picture. Night owls and culture vultures are equally well served with great restaurants, music, movies and more. And it’s safe to go out in the evenings to enjoy them. The education system is world-class as is our health care. And the economy has weathered the global financial crisis well, so job and career prospects are generally good. (Our economy grew 3% in 2012, and the IMF is predicting another 3% growth in 2013.) New Zealand is an island nation situated in the South Pacific Ocean. With a land area of 268,000 square kilometres, it is similar in size to Japan or Britain. We have a relatively large exclusive maritime economic zone of 4.1 million square kilometres.
