To get a scholarship, you need to meet certain criteria, which may vary from university to university, but the basic criteria that they can be based on are area of study, academic merit, community service, ethnicity, financial hardship, the industry or trade, leadership, the region you grew up in, or where you plan to study.

Work:

If you have the right skills and experience, it’s always a good time to look for work in New Zealand. With skill shortages across various sectors in the New Zealand labor market, graduates are in high demand in New Zealand. In particular, there is a strong demand for skilled workers in the health, information and communications technology, agriculture and farming, and engineering industries. An international education can be a strain on a student’s budget. In New Zealand, most students enrolled in a course of 12 months’ duration or longer can work part-time for up to 20 hours a week during semester and during holiday periods. Students with skills in demand and who wish to stay in New Zealand long-term may apply for a Skilled Migrant visa, which will allow them to live and work in New Zealand permanently.
