New Year brings new resources for international students
The Study in New Zealand site is kicking off 2017 with two new tools to support students interested in studying in New Zealand.
The ENZ team has been undertaking thorough research to address the big question on every international student’s mind: how much does it really cost to study and live in New Zealand?
After talking to students and seeking feedback about their experiences, ENZ has compiled a Cost of Living page.
This will be a centralised source of information for students that addresses the subject with clarity and transparency, setting realistic expectations on what they will need to budget for.
The page covers different budgets for a range of study options, noting the varying tuition fees depending on type of course (English language courses through to postgraduate) location and length of study.
Along with links to sites with further information on immigration and accommodation, the page also acknowledges that a typical student lifestyle goes beyond the bare necessities, and outlines everyday expenses in order to help students gain a comprehensive picture.
Of course, the cost of living is just one area of interest of prospective students – ENZ has also created a “Quick Facts” page where students can find 10 key reasons why New Zealand is the ultimate study destination.
