Education system
  • The New Zealand tertiary education system is
    broadly divided into six sectors
  • Universities
  • There are eight public universities in New
    Zealand, which offer undergraduate (bachelor) and
    postgraduate degrees. Universities are teaching
    and research-based
  • Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics
  • New Zealand has 22 Institutes of Technology or
    Polytechnics

    and degrees in a diverse range of subjects
    including the arts, hospitality, computer
    studies, quality management, ecotourism and
    others.

Education system
  • Teacher training
  • There are six government-funded institutions that
    specialise in teacher training.
  • English language training sector
  • Private English language schools offer a variety
    of courses for all ages including adventure,
    business and academic programs. Adventure courses
    provide a balance of English language tuition and
    stimulating activity of students choice.
  • Wãnanga
  • Wãnanga is the term for the Mãori providers of
    tertiary education and advanced study on Mãori
    tradition and custom, usually in the Mãori
    language.

Cost of studying
  • One of the advantages of studying in New Zealand
    is value for your money. Living expenses and
    tuition costs are comparatively affordable.
  • Tuition fees vary depending on the type of course
    (arts or science undergraduate/bachelor or
    postgraduate) and the duration of the course.
  • Accommodation
  • Like other parts of the world, the cost of rental
    accommodation varies greatly depending on where
    you study and the style of accommodation. As a
    guide, the national median rental in May 2013 was
    NZ360 per week for a three-bedroom home. In
    central parts of Auckland and Wellington, the
    median was nearer NZ460 a week with more
    desirable homes up to NZ660 per week.

Employment prospects
  • 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.
  • 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.
