Study in New Zealand

Why study in New Zealand?

Who wouldn’t wish to study in New Zealand - the origin place of elves, dwarves, and hobbits?

Besides this awesome location, you can always count on their educational system: despite having only 8 universities, one of them is ranked in top 100 by QS World University Rankings.

Also, being the less-deadly version of Australia, New Zealand offers students a great nightlife, combined with great landscapes and polite people - all without the danger of being bitten by spiders bigger than your fist.

New Zealand has eight state-funded universities, 16 Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs) and about 550 Private Training Establishments (PTEs), which include English language schools.

Choose the type of institution that’s best for your career path:

  • Universities offer higher degree-level education. Programmes are research-led and generally academic rather than vocational. In the 2020 QS World University Rankings, seven of New Zealand’s universities were in the top 100 in at least one subject.
  • ITPs and a few larger PTEs offer vocational degree-level education.
  • PTEs tend to offer specific vocational programmes, mainly at certificate and diploma level.

Practical Information

How to apply to universities in New Zealand

You should know that a New Zealand school year starts in February and ends in November, with a month-long break in June / July.

When you apply online (or on paper, if you hate trees), you should know that the documents you will need to provide are:

  • A personal statement of intent;
  • Your transcripts from secondary school, including any university courses that you may have taken;
  • Any relevant test scores (ACT or SAT);
  • Proof of funding, or intent to apply for funding for your tuition;
  • Proof of paying the application fee;
  • Your financial aid applications.

You can always have your questions answered at the admission office at the university, so write down your questions and go wild with their e-mail address.

Helpful ways to make sure you qualify for a New Zealand university

Take Preparation Courses: These kinds of courses enable degree-seeking students to get an extra educational boost just before they start their Master’s degree or other post-graduate degree programmes. Try a pre-M.B.A., pre-Law, or pre-Medicine programme, as well as any other foundation or preparation courses that will allow you to study in the degree programme of your choice;

Improve your English through an English-language prep course: If you’re attending a degree programme in New Zealand, you will need to prove that your language skills are good enough to participate in the classes and understand the lectures, seeing how some schools will require strong English skills. These courses will also prepare you for any of the English-language tests that universities require.

English-language tests

The minimum grades and scores international students are required to have vary wildly from university to university, and sometimes from programme to programme.

Still, the English proficiency tests usually accepted are:

  • Internet-based TOEFL (iBT);
  • Paper-based TOEFL;
  • Cambridge English: C1 Advanced or C2 Proficiency;
  • Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic;
  • Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB).
