Benefits of a New Zealand PhD
With New Zealand’s PhD package for international students, you can enjoy the following benefits:
- Pay the same fees as New Zealanders
- As a PhD student you have unlimited work rights under the terms of your student visa
- On completion of your PhD, you can apply for a 12-month Post-study work visa through Immigration New Zealand to allow you to search for employment. If you are able to find a suitable job in your chosen field, you may then apply for a two-year Post-study work visa (employer assisted).
- Your dependent children are classified as domestic students and can attend New Zealand’s primary and secondary schools at the same subsidised rate as New Zealand children.
