Study in a NZ university
Follow a pragmatic teaching model in a dream setting
New Zealand degrees are recognised internationally.
Studying in New Zealand opens up prospects that you may not yet be aware of in the longer term: for instance being granted a "post study" work visa and being able to settle in New Zealand for several years or permanently.
Not to mention that the labour market in Asia will also be accessible to you; NZ has strong links with Asian countries.
The cost of education is much lower than in the United States and lower than that of our Australian neighbour, it takes between 14 000 € and 17 000 € per year for the tuition fees for international students, which makes NZ very competitive given the level of education and the living environment.
The studies have a certain cost, but not much more than some schools in Europe and the possibility of finding part-time work quite easily will help you to finance part of your tuition fees.
indeed, the student visa allows you to work up to 20 hours a week for the duration of your studies, and even up to 40 hours during your holidays.
To help you finance your studies, there are also many scholarships available to international students.
Deadlines for registration vary from one university and program to another. For a start in March, the first deadlines are around October 1st and others go until December. So you could go to study in New Zealand immediately after you get the results of your high school degree, instead of waiting for the main start of year in March.
The main start of term here is in March. If this sounds like a constraint but this is actually an asset: you have the time to save money between July and March and/or you can improve your English while staying in your country in the meantime (or you can also come to NZ to study English!).
And if you have not finalised your choice of studies during the summer in your country, you will be able to seize the opportunity that NZ offers to you to start in March instead of waiting another 6 months for the start in September in Europe!
The New Zealand accent is not the easiest to understand but it is not a problem. In addition to getting used to it quickly, teachers here come from all over the world and universities are tolerant of the level of English for newcomers. A minimum is still required.
For a Bachelor, they generally require a minimum score of 6 at the IELTS or 60-78 at the TOEFL and for a Master 6.5 at the IELTS and 79-93 at the TOEFL are required.
Nearly all New Zealand universities also offer in-house refresher courses from a few weeks to several months, commonly referred to as the Foundation. However, the cost of these courses is added to the tuition fees of the course you choose. You can then take the tests to validate your registration.
