Getting a Student Visa
New Zealand is one of the best places in the world to study – you can study here if you get a student visa. The option is available for any level of education. This includes primary and secondary schools as well as post-secondary education – university, for example. You can also come to New Zealand on a student visa to study English.
Students in primary education and many secondary school students will need to come to New Zealand with a parent or guardian. For other students, you can live wherever you want. The student visa you’ll get will usually be for the duration of your course. While here you will get access to the country’s fantastic teaching plus you’ll expand your horizons by living in another country.
