New Zealand welcomes international students from all around the globe to their education institutions. New Zealand’s qualifications are world-class, and they have a number of systems in place to make sure the international students are looked after well.

 ·         Quality Education- The New Zealand Government has established strong national quality assurance systems, designed to help institutions maintain the quality and consistency of training programmes and assessment practices. NZQA is the quality assurance body for non-university providers, such as English language schools.

 Private training establishments must be registered with NZQA in order to offer you an officially recognised (approved) course. Immigration New Zealand will only issue a student visa if the course, programme or qualification you are planning to do is approved by a quality assurance body.

 ·         Code for Caring International Students- For all the international students, their provider must be a signatory to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. The Code sets the minimum standards of advice and care that are expected of providers who enrol international students. The Code applies to care and welfare of students only, not to academic standards.

 ·         Job and Residence Opportunity- New Zealand’s immigration policies include a graduate work pathway for international students who have achieved a New Zealand qualification, to enable them to gain work experience in a field directly related to the studies they have completed.

Depending on their area of study, they may have the opportunity to stay and work in New Zealand for up to four years, and possibly even gain residence.
