New Zealand Visa for Student
If you are looking for a student visa to New Zealand and that too if you need it like really fast, then wait no more, approach your nearest New Zealand Immigration consultant, because, now a recent immigration policy update will ensure that foreign tertiary students can easily apply for a visa to the Nelson region, where they can enjoy working, living and studying at the same time.
There is a worry among the labour department with respect to this policy keeping in mind the conflict of commercial interest. Hence, the government has taken up the responsibility to assess educational providers for their quality delivered. Immigration NZ is certain about providing the best educational service that the country has to offer foreign students.
NMIT of Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology hosts over 550 International students annually and from next year onwards NMIT is planning a trial partnership with Immigration NZ to help the country achieve its goal of reaching $5 Billion from the International education sector. Through this partnership, NMIT will be authorized to offer prioritized and streamlined visas for migrant students. With this initiative, NMIT will also be accountable for the immigration outcomes of such students. If all goes well, this policy will be effective throughout the nation in 2015.
NMIT has an annual income of about $3 Million from its international student base, according to the Chief Executive, Tony Gray. He said that, with this new initiative with the government, the number of application fallouts can be reduced considerably and that more number of students can be enrolled for the programs.
Michael Woodhouse, Immigration Minister, called this a win-win partnership, which will benefit both the institution as well as the region. The collaboration with NMIT and Immigration New Zealand will pave way for more changes in the policies in the coming future.
Dr Rajan Prasad, spokesperson for the Labour Immigration said that the conflict of Interest arises out of the business relation shared by the government and tertiary providers. This results in the shift of responsibility with matters related to immigration decisions away from government. Hence, he also said that, there is a high chance for this system not to be robust.
He said that, the tertiary institutions should do their part, which includes offering courses at international rates to foreign students as well as ensuring that the quality in maintained and kept exceptional. Whereas, it is up to the Immigration Department to ensure who can or cannot enter or leave New Zealand. Transferring this responsibility into private hands would compromise security as well as sovereignty of the peace-loving nation.
Mr Gray, however, is certain that this initiative is in the right direction and will make it easier for foreigners to apply for a student visa to New Zealand. With this new policy they can also earn while studying in New Zealand.
NMIT's student base consists largely Indians, followed by Chinese and Japanese. The fees are priced at international rates ($ 18,000 Annually), and there are no provisions for student loans, most of the students cannot legally work outside during their residence in NZ as well. From 2014 onwards, full time students can work during their course breaks.
This would also mean fewer part-time job opportunities for the kiwis, but they are still positive about the rising flow of students who wants to study in New Zealand.
