Work While you Study (and after)

These are great benefits! This is a big one! Many countries don’t let you work part-time while you’re on a student visa, but New Zealand does let you do that. Sure, you might not want to work while you’re studying. But you can do so for those of you who want to make a little extra money.

As well as being able to work while at school, you can also work for a whole year after you finish college. Another thing you can do is stay for two years after you graduate if the job is related to your degree. Then you’ll be able to apply for long-term residency. It’s possible that your time in New Zealand while you were in college, could turn into a career.
