Work Benefits
Unlike many other countries, New Zealand allows its international students to work while on a student visa; this is a huge advantage in terms of gaining work experience and being able to save up money. Additionally, international students may also stay and work in New Zealand for up to a year after graduating. What’s more, if the work you’re engaging in is relevant to your degree, you may stay in New Zealand for as long as 2 years, after which you will be able to apply for permanent residency.
