Pathway Student Visa

It is a category of visa usually applied for by students who intend to complete their qualification plan without the need of applying for a new student visa each time they progress towards a higher level of studies.

If you intend to study for up to 3 consecutive courses on a single student visa in New Zealand, this is the category you should apply for. You’ll need to have a Pathway Student Visa offer of place with a Pathway education provider and be able to pay your tuition fees.

Pathway Student Visas are granted for a duration long enough to complete your qualification plan.  You can’t include your partner or dependent children in a student visa application, but they can apply for their own visas based on their relationship to you.

You would be allowed to work part-time for up to 20 hours a week while studying and full-time in the holidays, depending on your course of study. However, care needs to be taken to ensure that you meet the pre-requisites for any second and third courses on your study pathway to stay in New Zealand on a Pathway Student Visa.
