Study Abroad New Zealand - Study Abroad in New Zealand
There are many study abroad programmes in New Zealand. Becoming increasingly popular due to the growing interest in New Zealand as a country, this country is known for it's spectacular beauty and interesting indigenous culture.
Most study abroad programmes are available to high school students in particular. Students choose to come to New Zealand and study in a High School for a year or less. This gives the student the chance to experience a new country, culture and make the most of different learning experiences.
The only thing students need before enrolling in a study abroad programme is an intermediate knowledge of the English Language. Without this knowledge it will be extremely difficult for all involved.
Accommodation, food and all amenities are provided to the student. This will usually be in the way of a host family. These families are chosen and approved by the New Zealand Government.
Not only is this an unreal, once in a life time experience. The opportunity to study in a new country will open many doors to students. This will help with work placements as well as with enrollment into a higher education or tertiary course.
University in New Zealand - Study Abroad in New Zealand
New Zealand universities offer an outstanding study abroad experience. The flexibility of the New Zealand university system gives you a great selection of courses and subjects, as well as the opportunity to truly immerse yourself into the Kiwi culture. Consider taking at least one Maori studies course to learn about the diversity of New Zealand’s history and population.
Every international student who wants to study abroad in New Zealand is granted a student visa. These courses must be listed for Overseas Students. Whether you want to study English abroad or take a Master Degree, you will certainly gain a student status in New Zealand. International students granted a student visa abroad in New Zealand are eligible to work up to 20 hours per week during term time, and even full time during vacations.
New Zealand's eight universities are part of the international university community. Degree programmes from New Zealand universities are recognised internationally by all leading universities. Within the scope of a Study in New Zealand Abroad Program / Open Semester Program international students study in New Zealand and are regularly enrolled at a university in New Zealand, taking regular exams. At the end of their studies in New Zealand they receive a certificate listing all the taken courses and grades. An application for a Study Abroad Program is relatively unbureaucratic. However, the courses are chosen on the spot at the university in New Zealand, therefore it is difficult to design a course schedule before taking up studies in New Zealand.
Visiting Student Programs:
Within the scope of a Visiting Student Programs international students are enrolled as guest students / guest auditors at a university in New Zealand. They have to “apply” for the specific courses at the university in New Zealand, which can be a quite bureaucratic procedure. However, compared to the Study Abroad Program, international students know in advance which courses they take.
Summer Sessions / Summer Schools:
Summer Sessions or Summer Schools are a good value alternative option to Visiting Student and Study Abroad Programs in New Zealand. Courses are held during summer vacations wasting no valuable term time. In most cases, the home university will treat these courses like „normal“ courses which last a whole term. Summer Sessions run from January to March, alternatively some universities in Australia also offer Winter Sessions running from July to November.
