What are my tertiary education options?

New Zealand offers a wide range of tertiary educational opportunities.  

Home to a world-class education system, several of our universities were recently listed among the 2018-19 QS World University Rankings. In addition, there are over 100 other polytechnic and private training institutes throughout the country. 

Study abroad and exchange programmes are offered at many tertiary institutes. And, if you’re considering completing your full undergraduate studies, a bachelor’s degree is often completed within three years – as opposed to four years in many other countries.  

Course options are also wide-ranging. Everything from earning a business degree, to an aviation diploma is on offer.

The biggest perk of studying in New Zealand is the lively and adventurous environment for students to explore. Whether you’re interested in discovering our scenic beauty or the culture of our urban landscape, there’s something for everyone.
