We have some of the highest ranked universities in the world, and all of our universities are ranked in the QS World University Rankings. Many degrees and programs have transferable skills that apply not only here, but in other countries. For example, Kiwi doctors are world renowned and are highly sought after around the glob.
University can be a significant investment, but the opportunities it affords people pay dividends. Generally, non-New Zealand residents require a student visa to undertake study here. For courses of short duration however, a simple visitor visa may be the only requirement.
Study can be a pathway towards residency, and a post-study work visa is available for candidates who have completed a degree or diploma over level 4 (a bachelors degree is level 7).
People who have completed a degree in New Zealand qualify for extra points under the Skilled Migrant Category visa, and so are at an advantage when submitting an Expression of Interest.
Below are a list of New Zealand universities. However, there are many more Polytechnics offering degree and post-graduate level programs. If you would like a free consultation for a prospective study visa, don't hesitate to get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
