New Zealand - Destination to Study... Work...
Migrate!! New Zealand, a beautiful and unique
country in the South Pacific,where exciting
things are happening in Education. New Zealand is
becoming the first choice for an increasing
number of international students seeking quality
education to explore new ideas in pioneering
programmes that will put them at the front in
the world job markets of the future. New Zealand
universities, colleges and institutions offer
students a unique learning environment. This is
supported by an integrated education system in
which students attending New Zealand schools find
it easy to make the trans- ition to the next
level of education. Why Study In New
s who have studied are earning a reputation of
being called innovative thinkers and are being
addressed as The New World Class. It has a
progressive education system with state of art
facilities. Qualifications are internationally
recognized.There are wide range of study
opportunities, including state administered
primary, secondary schools, universities,
polytechnics, colleges of education and private
training establishments. The NZQA assures the
quality of programme offered by state
institutions and a private establishment, which
in turn ensures that programmes offe- red in New
Zealand, maintains international
AND WELFARE Most of the universities have been
taking International students for the last 50 -
60 years and hence have gained a
multicultural/national perspe- ctive offering a
balanced curriculum which finds relevance in work
places around the world. The same perspective
enables it to offer excellent wel- fare services
to students from around the world. The
polytechnics in NZ are known for the programs
which are Ready to Enter the Job Markets. BEST
about studying in NZ is that the expenses
involved are comparatively less than the other
major destinations viz. USA, UK, Canada or
Australia. In fact it is almost 50 less than
that of USA and UK. Coupled with the lesser costs
and International recognition of its
qualification, NZ essentially offers "Best of
Both Worlds" qualifications. Kiwi Life Even
though the country might be small the people
think big. The people pop- ularly known as Kiwi
s are renowned for their hospitality and their
love for sports and the outdoors. POST STUDY
WORK VISA (OPEN) Student who has completed a
qualification or qualifications in New Zealand,
but does not have a job offer may be eligible for
a Post-study work visa-open for a maximum of 12
months. Then, when student has found a job can
apply for a further visa for up to two or three
years under the Study to Work category. To be
eligible for a Post-study work visa students are
required to meet certain conditions that can be
found at http//www. immigration.govt.nz/ ENGLISH
WIDELY SPOKEN As English is the day-to-day
language in NZ, Indian students find it very easy
to study, live and interact in NZ. Moreover the
NZ accent is easy to understand. EXCELLENT
CLIMATIC CONDITIONS New Zealand enjoys temperate
climate which is moderated by the sea's
surrounding it. This-results in mild summers and
cool winters. This exc- ellent climate
encourages all sorts of outdoor sports and
activities.One can indulge in sports as varied
from Football, cricket to White water rafting
and Bungee jumping. In fact it is widely accepted
fact that NZ enjoys one of the most favorable
climates in the world. It enjoys the four
distinct seasons, viz, summer (Nov. to March),
autumn (March to June), winter (June to Sept.)
spring (Sept. to Nov.) hence people enjoy high
quality living conditions. CLEAN, GREEN AND SAFE
COUNTRY New Zealand offers a safe learning
environment. It is the first country in the world
to declare itself as a nuclear free zone. The
environment is green, clean and uncrowded with a
small populations and wide open spaces. CODE OF
PRACTICE A code of practice that ensures
protection of international students welfare by
all education providers came into force in 2002.
Only signatories to the code will be allowed to
enroll international students. Ensuring that New
Zealand education providers act fairly and
reasonably when recruiting students, the Code
gives prospective students that they can trust
the institution in which they choose to
enroll. QUALITY ASSURANCE To ensure that both the
Government and individuals are investing in
quality education, training and assessment, the
Government has set up nationally recognized
processes of quality assurance. There are a
number of governments appointed bodies
responsible for approving qualifica- tions in
New Zealand and for the quality that determines
the delivery of qualifications. These bodies are
New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA)
Responsible for approving and registering all
courses and national qualifications offered at
polytechnics and priva1te training establishm-
ents. New Zealand Vice-Chancellor's Committee
(NZVCC) Responsible for approving all diplomas,
undergraduate and graduate programmes offered by
New Zealand universities.
Universities in New Zealand University education
was established in New Zealand in 1870 and has a
similar tradition to the British university
system. There are eight state- funded
universities in New Zealand, all of them
internationally respected for their academic and
research performance. In addition to a centrally
co-ordinated system of quality assurance audits
at both institution and programme level, each
university undertakes internal quality checks.
All New Zealand universities offer a broad range
of subjects in Arts, Commerce and Science. Each
has developed its own specialist subjects such as
Medicine, Engineering, Veterinary Science.
Computer Studies, Agriculture and Environmental
Studies, Sports-Science, Biotechnology,
Architecture etc. Bachelors, Masters and
Doctoral degrees are offered by all New Zealand
universities. A range of under graduate and
postgraduate diplomas is also available, along
with honours programmes (usually requiring an
additional year of study). Polytechnics in New
Zealand New Zealand Polytechnics, and Institutes
of Technology, are state funded and provide
education and training at all levels ranging from
introductory studies through to full degree
programmes. A few of them offer PG programmes as
well. Polytechnics and Institutes of Technology
are efficient ter- tiary providers offering
programmes which can be both academically and
vocationally focused. Due to their active
engagement with industry, emp- loyers and g
overnment agencies they provide programmes which
are of a high academic standard and are relevant
to the rapidly changing work- force on a global
basis. Polytechnics offer diverse courses like
Arts and Design, Travel Tourism, Hospitality
etc. Private Degree Providers In 1989, amendments
to the Education Act in New Zealand enabled the
private tertiary sector to award degrees through
the New Zealand Qualific- ations Authority
(NZQA). The key to the legitimacy of the private
degree providers is their relationship with the
NZQA which has responsibility for course
accreditation. The mission of the private degree
providers is to provide a quality service to
their students and a range of skills of value in
the work environment. Private Training Providers
(PTEs) Private training establishments are
registered and their courses approved by NZQA.
Institutions and schools in this sector provide a
range of colur- ses including English language,
aviation flight training, air traffic control,
english, business computing, dance, design and
arts, religious studies, travel and tourism and
training for the hospitality industry. Undergradua
te Study in New Zealand At most New Zealand
universities the course of study for a Bachelor's
degree consists of a prescribed number of units,
papers or courses. In each subject there are
usually first-year (stage I or 100-level),
second-year (stage 2 or 200 level) and third-year
(stage 3 or 300 level) courses. A sec- ond year
course may be commenced only after prescribed
passes in the subject at stage I and a thirdyear
course only after required passes in the subject
at stage 2. In each subject the student is
required to attend a given number of lectures,
tutorials and/or laboratory periods per week. In
some courses field trips provide opportunities
for on-site study of natural phenomena or social
processes. These learning contacts are supplemen-
ted by persona l reading and research. Students
are expected to develop independent study skills
with a minimum of professional supervision.
Grades given in tests, assignments and practical
work count towards the final grade for a course.
Most courses have a final written examination
held either at midyear (June) or the end of the
academic year (October/November). Post Graduate
Study in New Zealand The first degree a student
is able to gain in New Zealand is as elsewhere, a
Bachelors degree. With a completed Bachelor's
degree, a graduate may be able to go on to a
Masters degree. These degrees may be awarded with
Honours, an indication both of the challenge the
course presents and of the student's achievement
in it. Graduate Diploma A one-year, full-time
course of study for graduates. It does not always
require its students to have prior learning or
experience in the subject matter of the
diploma Postgraduate Diploma A one-year full-time
study, designed for graduates, which builds on
the subject matter in the academic field of the
previous degree. Master's Degree The Master's
degree is open to those who have completed a
Bachelors degree. The course of study is usually
of one or two year's full-time study or its
equivalent in part - time study. The work
required normally builds upon the prior knowledge
gained in the major part of the Bachelor's
degree, and most or all of it is in that
discipline. It is at a more advanced level. That
is normally reflected in the content of the work
in the mode of teaching which is likely to
emphasis seminar presentation and in provision
of research experience for the candidate. A
thesis is an account of a substantial piece of
research. Many master's degrees include a thesis
component, and in some cases, particularly those
which are taken after a four year Bachelors
(Honours) course, the degrees may be thesis-only.
However increasingly Masters' degrees by papers,
or papers plus research, are be- coming
available. The successful student is expected to
show, as the title implies, a real grasp of the
subject, demonstrated by an understanding of the
discipline, a capacity to reflect upon it, and an
ability to undertake research into it.
Doctorate New Zealand Doctoral Research
scholarships are a significant educational
opportunity. Doctorate programmes generally take
at least 3 years of full time study to complete.
It is a fully rese- arch based degree. PHD
students pay domestic tuition fee which is a
benefit of fee difference from international
fees to domestic fees . Scholarships are also
awarded to the students on the basis of academic
merit and research ability by the univ- ersity.
The scholarships doctoral degree by research in
New Zealand universities. The scholarship funding
covers international tuition fee, a monthly
living allowance, travel, health, insurance,
books and thesis allowance. Academic Year The
academic year is from mid / late February to
early November and most Universities have 2
semesters with a holiday of 4 weeks in June. Each
University operates slightly different dates and
some also offer summer school in the main holi-
day period in November to February. Intakes are
February, May, July and sometimes in September
with Universities. Polytechnic offers multiple
intakes. Application Procedure New Zealand
generally has 2 intakes. i.e. Feb. July. It is
suggested that you should start making
applications in the month of August for the Feb
intake. Universities generally take around 6
weeks to process an application as compare to
Government Polytechnics or a private institute,
which takes 2 to 7 working days. Immigration
services again takes around 4 to 6 weeks to
process a student visa application. Formal list
of Documents neededfor making an application is
available at our office, which is available free
