Student Visas


New Zealand offers many different levels of study and is a fantastic option to gain an internationally recognised qualification or to attend an international primary or secondary school.

New Zealand is a popular destination for studying at New Zealand universities and can often lead to residence.

Most international students need to apply for a student visa before they are able to study in New Zealand.

You can generally work while you are studying and in many cases be approved a Post Study work visa for up to 3 years so you can continue working in New Zealand full time.

This could lead to you being able to apply for residence after your study, once obtaining a suitable job and meeting the residence criteria.

Talk to us about your options.  We work closely with Miguel at ILTS Overseas Education to place students in their chosen courses.

Miguel will hold a consultation with you to determine the best options of study for you providing you with a roadmap of your study.

Primary and secondary students who are dependent children of many visa holders, such as work to residence, essential skills, post study work visa, student visas, are able to apply for student visas to allow them to study as domestic students at primary or secondary schools.

Fees are significantly lower than international student fees.

Most schools also offer the chance to study as an international student, with or without your parents being in New Zealand.

There are many different types of student visas available depending on your circumstances, your goals, and reasons for coming to NZ.   It is best to book a consultation with one of our licensed immigration advisers to provide you with your options, pros and cons.
