Offshore Student Visa

This visa allows you to get an internationally recognised education while having the time of your life. If you’re from overseas, you can apply for offshore student visa to study full-time in New Zealand. You’ll need to pay the full cost of your courses and enrol with an approved education provider.

While on a student visa, you study full-time at the course stated on your visa – this includes schools, tertiary (study after secondary school) and English language study. You can also work part-time up to 20 hours a week while studying or full-time in the holidays, depending on your visa conditions.

You can also apply for a Pathway student visa which will allow you to study 3 consecutive programmes with approved education providers on a single visa.
