 Study in
New Zealand

 The famous professor "Darsea" (pictured above) conceded to us an interview about study in New Zealand for overseas students. He was keen to tell everybody how great his country is, and the quality of tuition one will find in New Zealand. A few times he had to interrupt the interview due a fish or another swimming around, but he responded the questions so well we decided to publish it. Read below the frequent asked questions and answers about study in New Zealand.

1) Professor Darsea, How do you see the quality of the education in New Zealand ?

A.: My son, I've been swimming in the 7 seas of the world and I can tell you the education here is one of the best in the world. From the first year in the primary school to the latest PHD possible, New Zealand has a reputation of serious, enjoyable, and top education around the world. One good thing is that many of our courses are recognized not only in Australia, but also in many other countries in the world.

2) Professor, is it necessary to obtain a Student Visa prior to arrive in New Zealand to study?

A. It will depend on the duration of the course. If the course you intend to take has less than 12 weeks of duration, it is not necessary a Student Visa, if longer, than you may need a visa. The New Zealand Department of Immigration is the best people to ask this type of question, but also, the educational institution you are planing to enrol will be able to orientate you regarding the visa procedures for international students.

3) Once enrolled in a course, Can I work legally ?

A. Yes and No. It all will depend on the duration of the course and the type of course itself. Part time courses, as well as courses with less than 3 months of duration don't give the right for the student to work in New Zealand. In case of a long duration course, the student is allowed to work up to 20 hours per week. You always will need a visa or permit given by the Department of Immigration to work in New Zealand. Again, for more up to date information contact the New Zealand Immigration Department or the school you are about to enrol.

4)Which City is the best city to study in New Zealand ? 

A. It also will depend on the course you want to take. There are some university and Technical courses only available in certain city and not in all main cities. For English courses even smaller cities offer good quality courses. You have to have in mind than some cities can be very cold during winter, especially on the South Island. It all will depend on your personal preference (bigger city, smaller city, etc) and the course you're about to take. But I can say that I love all New Zealand Cities and towns. Each one has something different to offer.

5) Professor, Is it New Zealand safe for students ? 

A. New Zealand is a very safe place to everybody, not only students. In reality New Zealand is one of the safest countries in the world, and criminality does exist, but in a very small scale. Here, overseas student will fell safe and confident to achieve their academic goals without too much trouble.
6) Professor Darsea, Does it cost too much to study in New Zealand.

A. Again, yes and No, and the answer depends on the exchange rate of your money into the New Zealand Dollar. I can say anyway yhat New Zealand is a cheaper place to study than many other countries, such as United States, England, Australia, Germany, and many others. That is one the reasons many Americans and Europeans come to study in New Zealand because we offer better cost for high quality of tuition and many of our University courses are reconized overseas..

7) Is that too complicated to enrol in a New Zealand Educational Istitution? 

A. It is a piece of cake as we say here. You can contact the institution directly and they will tell you everything you have to do and how to pay. With exception of the English courses, which requires only the payment, other courses such as Vocational Courses will require a certain level of English language. For University and Post Graduation, of course a higher level of English language and your past academic history will also be required. You can check here in Portal Oceania some participant schools which offer courses for International students and contact them directly.

8) What New Zealand can offer to an International Student while studing in New Zealand?

A.: New Zealand has one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world with a very high degree of environmental protection. The country changes from green pastures with sheep into a volcanic landscape on the North Island. On the South Island the Alps produces an impressive wall of mountains, crystal clear creeks, and fantastic glaciers. Our beaches are beautiful with very clean and unpolluted waters, full of fish, crayfish (lobsters) and without any doubt; our restaurants have the freshest and tastiest seafood in the world. Our big cities Auckland and Wellington are big enough to satisfy any need without being too big and oppressive. New Zealand is not a very big country in terms of area, and because that everything is not too far away from the most needed facilities. New Zealanders love outdoor living, sports, fishing, surfing, snow ski, boating, and many other activities to make life very enjoyable, We have very good nightclubs, restaurants, cafes, hospitals, and so many things to do, that you will be only limited by how much you can spend and your available time outside the classroom. But the best of all, New Zealanders are very friendly and simple people and will be ready to receive you in their country with open arms.

Don't waste time. Come to study in New Zealand.
