Visa Requirements

The New Zealand Government provides an opportunity to all International students to study in the country but as a prerequisite, you’ll have to obtain a student visa first. The visa you require will depend on the category of study you would want to pursue, and how long you plan to stay in New Zealand. You can study with a selected education program that features a Memorandum of Understanding with the Immigration office, which will allow you to apply for a visa that lasts as long as your program goes. You can also apply for scholarships through the university you are attending; if you receive one of these, then your visa will last as long as the scholarship does, up to four years. In order to get a student visa, you have to be able to show that you have enough funds available so that you can meet your living costs while you are here for your educational Venture.
