  • International PhD students pay the same as New Zealand PhD students, which is about NZD$6,500 to NZD$9,000 per year for most subjects.

 

Work while you study

  • International students have the same legal minimum rights and entitlements as anyone else working in New Zealand.
  • These include your right to be paid at least the minimum wage, paid annual and public holidays, and rest breaks.
  • If you have a Student Visa you may work:
  • Up to 20 hours a week during term time
  • Full-time during scheduled holidays
  • If you are a Masters by research or PhD student, you may work full-time during term time and scheduled holidays.

 

Post-Study Work Rights

  • New Zealand qualifications are internationally recognised. When students graduate, their qualifications will take them anywhere they want to go in the world – they are a student’s passport to success.  You can also apply for a visa to work in New Zealand for up to 3 years after you finish your study if you have an acceptable qualification. For more information on post-study work rights, go to Immigration New Zealand.
