New Zealand, famous for its amazing scenery, is a great country - a fun place to visit and a superb study destination. These features are now enjoyed by more than 20,000 international students studying in New Zealand at all levels of the education system. They enrol on short term courses such as English language programs, secondary schools courses in preparation for enrolment into tertiary institutions, or vocational courses and degree programs.

New Zealanders are well travelled and have a great interest in people from other cultures, so visitors and international students soon feel more than welcome. Ask any student who has studied in New Zealand. Campuses are very international with students from all corners of the globe studying and socialising together.

Qualifications and levels of study

There are 10 levels of study in New Zealand schools and universities. The lowest level is a Certificate and the highest is a Doctoral degree. Each level is more complex than the one below it. These are the names of our qualifications and their levels:

  • Certificates are at Levels 1 to 4
  • Diplomas are at Levels 5 and 6
  • Bachelors degrees and Graduate Diplomas are at Level 7
  • Postgraduate Certificates and Diplomas, and Bachelors degrees with Honours are at Level 8
  • Masters degrees are at Level 9
  • Doctoral degrees are at Level 10.

All major education providers are registered with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA). So you can be sure that you’re studying for an approved qualification. And it’s been assessed to ensure that it’s high quality. Some private training establishments don’t use NZQA qualifications. You’ll need to check and make sure their courses are suitable for you.

At polytechnics and institutes of technology you can study for a certificate, diploma or degree. These institutions offer more practical and vocational courses. At colleges of education you can study for a degree in education and teaching.

A university bachelor’s degree usually takes three to four years. Most degree structures give you the opportunity of combining your "major" subject (like chemistry) with supporting subjects known as "minor" subjects (like mathematics).

After that, you can study for a post-graduate qualification such as a graduate diploma, master’s degree or doctorate.

New Zealand has many educational institutions, more than you would expect for a small population. So there's a lot of choice
