STUDENT EMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE
Students may be permitted to work part-time while they are studying, and full-time on completion of study. Students may need to apply, and pay a fee, to Immigration New Zealand for a ‘variation of conditions’ to their student visa/permit, to be eligible to work in New Zealand. Diploma students are normally entitled to work part-time.
Students with valid work permits can use Student Job Search services (an enrolment fee applies). Student Job Search helps students find summer vacation and temporary or part-time work. See www.sjs.co.nz for further information. See also www.seek.co.nz, www.careers.govt.nz and www.trademe.co.nz/jobs.
On completion of your Diploma studies, you are able to apply for a Post-Study Work Visa, which will allow you to stay in New Zealand for a period of up to 12 months to find suitable employment. You may also apply for a work visa. Completion of a diploma may also entitle you to immigration points should you wish to consider migration to New Zealand. Full details of visa and permit requirements, advice on rights to employment in New Zealand while studying, and reporting requirements, are available through Immigration New Zealand, and can be viewed on their website at www.immigration.govt.nz
