Why study in New Zealand?

Great choice! Let’s see what New Zealand has to offer

 

New Zealand is a great destination for international students, offering a world-class educational system. All of its universities adhere to global standards, regularly tested and monitored by government to ensure a consistently high level of education wherever you choose to study. It has a progressive, responsive education system, combining traditional principles of teaching with innovation and technology, leading to globally recognised and respected qualifications.

New Zealand is a member of the Lisbon Recognition Convention, which means its certificates, diplomas and degrees are recognised in all 50 participating countries.

1.    Global rankings

With so much to choose from, picking the right course is always a tough decision. Considering that every student, course and university is different, it’s an important decision to get right, with research showing course preparation plays a big part in the satisfaction of international students.

University rankings are a great way to help compare key performance indicators across different universities. Luckily all eight New Zealand universities are ranked in the 2015-16 QS World University Rankings, impressive for a country of just under five million people!

2.    Work benefits

New Zealand offers several unique working advantages for international students including the ability to work full-time during holidays and the option of applying for a six-month work permit to gain points for a residency application.

3.    Quality of education

New Zealand offers a very supportive environment for its international students. The number of students per classrooms is often smaller than other western countries, allowing for more personalised attention. As teaching methods are constantly developing, you will experience a wide range of teaching techniques and environments.

4.    Natural beauty

New Zealand is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world and offers an amazing choice for anyone who looks for adventure. Study during the week and choose from activities like bungee jumping, skiing, hiking, rafting or exploring the local culture in your free time.
