Employment prospects in New Zealand

Apart from the internships that the students can join while pursuing their educational courses in New Zealand, owing to the skill shortages across the various sectors in the New Zealand market, students with skills in demand and who wish to stay in New Zealand long term can apply for a Skilled Migrant visa, which will allow them to work and live in the country permanently. Graduates are in high demand in New Zealand, in particular in the health, information and communications technology, agriculture and farming, as well as the engineering industries.

Earn while you learn

An international education can be a strain on a student’s budget. In New Zealand, most students enrolled in a course of 12 months' duration or longer can work part-time for up to 20 hours a week during semester and during holiday periods.

This not only helps top up the bank balance, but also provides an excellent opportunity to integrate in the community and meet new people.

After graduation

With skill shortages across various sectors in the New Zealand labour market, graduates are in high demand in New Zealand. In particular, there is a strong demand for skilled workers in the health, information and communications technology, agriculture and farming, and engineering industries.

Students with skills in demand and who wish to stay in New Zealand long-term may apply for a Skilled Migrant visa, which will allow them to live and work in New Zealand permanently.
