WHY STUDY IN NEW ZEALAND?

We could write many pages to try and put New Zealand into words, but instead we invite you to watch this great 2 minute video, created by the 100% Pure New Zealand campaign organisers.
Building a career in New Zealand.
New Zealand is a highly developed country and also has a fast growing economy. The small population, only 4.5 million, combined with the low unemployment rate, make it challenging for most companies to find qualified professionals, so there is a need to train and retain the talents coming from overseas.
These new Kiwis* have the opportunity to qualify themselves and pathway into the New Zealand work force.
How do I start?
We are going to show you the pathway to your career provided by NZIE, for each one of these areas of study.
You’ll find New Zealand is very affordable compared to many other English-speaking countries around the world. This is one of the many reasons why over 100,000 International students come to New Zealand to study.
