Visa to Study Options

New Zealand is a fantastic place to study. It offers excellent universities, schools, and other educational institutions. You will also enjoy the way of life here. Your route to studying in New Zealand is via a visa to study.

There are several options available, as well as things you need to know. This includes the rules around work during and after your studies. You will find an overview of these issues on the following pages, or you can call us to speak to one of our expert immigration advisers.

Why New Zealand

Depending on the course of study, you can also work while you are studying, and potentially be granted an open Work Visa after your studies so you can then actively seek full-time work in New Zealand.

To get a student visa approved, you will need to show that you are a genuine student. That will include proof that you have enough funds to pay your tuition and support yourself without working (even though, on many Visas, you are entitled to work part-time.)

How to get student Visa

The application process, much like most countries, is online. The documents we need will include:

  • An Immigration NZ application form and fee
  • Proof of your identity
  • Your study plan (In some countries INZ has a template to use)
  • Evidence of sufficient funds
  • Your Offer of Place and Fees Statement

Immigration New Zealand will use your study plan to determine if your study is sensible, relevant, and a logical pathway. You are also expected to show a motivation to return home after you complete your study. If a part of your application is missing or there is not enough proof, Immigration New Zealand may refuse to issue a visa to you. However, around 90% of applicants get an Approval in Principle (AIP).

Once you get an AIP, you can pay your tuition fees, get a receipt, send it to Immigration NZ, and your visa will be issued. The process can take between two and six weeks to complete. Don’t worry – we will help you every step of the way.
