Being one of the most beautiful countries and offering breath-taking and awe-inspiring scenery, New Zealand also gives you a wide range of study opportunities when it comes to studying and making a wonderful career. The natives of New Zealand are called ‘Kiwis’, which is a bird found only in New Zealand and nowhere else. In recent years, it has become one of the favorite places for international students to continue their studies. Following are some of the pain points to justify the statement:
Advanced and Sophisticated Education System
New Zealand boasts an advanced educational structure, which is one of the main attractions for the international students. The eight institutions that form New Zealand’s core study circle are located across the country’s main two islands: North and South. Due to this uniform distribution, it gives numerous chances to the student to study, work and see the vibrant culture and experience the natural beauty. In addition, these universities give a chance to students, who are interested in studying endangered marine species or earthquake engineering. The NZ Government takes very special care and is highly active about the education system to ensure the degrees given by their universities are recognized worldwide.
Weather is one of the most attractive aspects of the country. You won’t be getting any better weather in the world than here. The winters are mild and the temperature is around 10ºC (50ºF) and slightly wet. The snow can be found in the higher altitudes but it is not a common occurrence in lower altitudes. In summers, the temperature remains close to 25ºC (77ºF), making them a delightful time-period to experience NZ in its true spirit. The season circle goes like, the summer lasts from December to February and winter lasts from June to August. Spring and fall are similar, with cooler temperatures and little rain.
Perfect Place to Go for an Adventure
If you are an adventure junkie and are studying in New Zealand, you cannot think more of a perfect combination like this. If you want a break from studies or you want to have, you can easily choose from many affordable adrenaline-pumping activities like Zorbing, Bungee Jumping, and Ziplining. New Zealand beaches and beautiful coastline offer you a complete soothing and relaxing experience to remove your fatigue and immerse yourself into the unparalleled natural scenery to be found anywhere else.
The People (Kiwis)
Kiwis are some of the nicest and friendly people you ever hope to meet. They treat international students or visitors as a friend and give them a warm welcome. As they themselves are avid travelers, they are used to meet people from different ethnicity, and admire the fact of meeting an immigrant coming to their nation. The people of New Zealand are also laid back and are of fun-loving nature, making it easy for a student to adapt to the new surroundings. There are just over 4 million people living in the country and with the country so small, you will be amazed to find so much cultural diversity there and can expect to meet someone from your homeland.
A DEGREE RECOGNIZED AND VALUED BY UK EMPLOYERS
The educational system of the Kiwis is very much influenced by the ‘British Education System’. In fact, it is almost based on the British standards, which benefits the students who are applying for the jobs in the UK, as they are highly sought after by the employers. As not only they have a degree which is equal to the universities of UK but also an invaluable international experience. Not only to UK, NZ universities education is recognized in Australia, Canada, USA and many other parts of developed and developing countries.
High Standard of Living at Low cost
The standard of living of the Kiwis is among the world’s best. They are very well paid for their work but the main advantage is that the cost of living there is cheap in comparison to other top destinations. This makes them a viable option for the students to achieve their dreams.
Safe and Peaceful Environment
The political system of New Zealand is worthy of appreciation as the crime rate in the country is almost negligible. This is due to the peaceful and joyous nature of the natives. The main reasons for is the economy is in an incredible state, the cost of living is low, and the government is stable.
Despite being a small country with a population just over 4 million, New Zealand provides some of the excellent job opportunities to the people. As an international student, you are allowed to work 20 hours a week by the government and during vacations, you can work for 40 hours per week. Moreover, you can also get an internship from the universities, which will further reduce your tuition fees. One of the main advantages of studying there is that you will get a 12-month work permit on your student visa. And if you are able to land a job related to your field of study, you can apply for the Permanent Residency (PR) for which you will receive your answer within 6 months.
