Career Opportunities


With each passing year an increasing number of students from India travel to New Zealand to pursue higher studies, drawn to a large extent by the highly regarded universities of the country. But there is another, often downplayed, reason why students are heading to New Zealand in large numbers- it is the flexibility and scope of working part time in the country while also pursuing one’s study.  International students in New Zealand are allowed to work up to 20 hours per week to support their studies –the minimum wage is set at NZ $14.75. Apart from reducing their financial burden, these work opportunities in New Zealand are a great way for international students  to get acclimatized to NZ’s way of life, culture and get a first-hand experience of the job market.


An MBA course from any of the top universities in New Zealand can cost you a minimum of NZ $40,000. Now if you can find yourself a part-time job, you will be assured of NZ $14.75 per hour, which translates to around NZ $290 per week, assuming you work the maximum allotted 20 hours per week. So, by the end of the year, you will have almost NZ $15,000 in the bank, which more or less takes care of your living expenses and cuts into your tuition fees as well. This is what makes work opportunities for international students in New Zealand worth exploring. 


Education Cost


As part of your student visa application, you must provide evidence that you can cover your living expenses while studying in New Zealand. If you’re studying in New Zealand on a scholarship or a sponsor/family member has agreed to accept financial responsibility for you while you’re here, you may not be required to show proof of funds. Annual fees for state schools start at about $11,000 for primary schools and $13,000 for secondary schools. Annual fees for private primary and secondary schools start at about $25,000.

If you will be studying in New Zealand for more than one year, you‘ll need to prove that you have at least $15,000 to support yourself for the first year. If you’re studying for less than a year, you must have at least $1250 for each month of study to contribute to your living expenses.

Accommodation

Choose from halls of residence, home stays or flats. Accommodation costs vary widely by region: the national median weekly rent for a three to four-bedroom house in May 2020 was $565, or $640

Entertainment 

Explore New Zealand’s stunning beaches, mountains, forests and lakes for free. Other free or cheap entertainment options include live music, festivals, outdoor movies, parks, gardens, museums and galleries. Many tertiary education institutions offer discount cards for students.

Phone and Internet
Choose from monthly account plans or pre-paid plans for mobile phones. A pre-paid plan that includes calling, texting and data starts at about $19. Free Wi-Fi is available in central Auckland, Wellington, Rotorua and Dunedin.

Scholarships


A scholarship is a great way to help pay your study and living expenses. Gaining a scholarship - whether undergraduate or postgraduate - may mean you don’t have to find part-time work, giving you more time to focus on your education.

Many scholarships for international students - including PhD scholarships and scholarships for Masters’ degrees - are offered by the New Zealand Government, other governments, educational institutions and philanthropists.

What amount of money is available through scholarships?

The amount of money available and the type of award varies between institutions. Certain research programs may provide up to 100% of the tuition fee besides covering a part of your living expenditures. You may experience higher competition when you apply for government scholarships in comparison to the university scholarships.

Types of scholarships:

  • New Zealand International Doctoral Research Scholarships (NZIDRS)
  • New Zealand Commonwealth Scholarships
  • New Zealand Excellence Awards (NZEA)
  • NZ-GRADS New Zealand Global Research Alliance Doctoral Scholarship
  • SEG Scholarship
  • Palmerston North City Mayor's Goodwill Ambassador Scholarship
