A New Zealand education sets you up for success, whether you plan to return home, stay on in New Zealand or see where you could go in the global jobs marketplace.
If you’ve set your sights on working in New Zealand, you may be able to stay on after you’ve completed your studies.
You can apply for a 12-month post-study work visa to find a job. If you do find a job, you can apply for a further two-year post-study work visa.
After that, you may qualify for a New Zealand resident visa under the skilled migrant category.
