International students to benefit from new work rights and visa changes

New Zealand Ministers have announced new and improved rules for working whilst studying in NZ and obtaining a visa -there’s never been a better time to study in New Zealand! Changes will make it easier for some international students to work during their studies and allow streamlined visa processing in partnership with selected high quality education providers.

The new initiatives include:

  • Extending work rights to all international students studying at high quality providers in the English Language sector (enrolled in courses of at least 14 weeks’ duration)
  • Providing full-time work rights to all tertiary international students undertaking study of one academic year or more during scheduled holidays
  • Giving international PhD and Masters by research students unlimited work rights
  • Piloting a partnership initiative that will give trusted providers more say in visa decisions for their students
