Are you thinking that you need a change of scenery? Do you want to take a trip that you will never be able to forget, but you have not yet chosen a destination?
Today we tell you why studying and working in New Zealand is one of the best options to spend a season away from home. We explain what makes these kiwi lands so special .
You can study and work in New Zealand on a student visa
If your plan is to go to New Zealand to study English, with courses of more than three months you will obtain the student visa . This will allow you to work part-time, while you are studying, and full-time during school vacation periods .
This, for those who do not come with many savings , is a piece of mind. You can pay for your stay without having to spend months and months saving before taking the leap.
In addition to the student visa , the New Zealand government offers other types of visas that you can also work with .
Getting the permanent visa is easy
In the last five years, 30% of our students get a permanent visa in New Zealand. And the unemployment rate is so low that in this country it is much easier to get a job.
In addition, the new immigration policy allows you to obtain a work permit with a student visa in these cases .
You will not find too many Spanish speakers
Your goal is to improve English . You have sworn to yourself thousands of times that you will, that the next time you travel to an Anglo-Saxon country you will not meet people who speak your language , but, in the end, you always end up falling.
In New Zealand this is not going to happen to you, simply because it will be difficult for you to find people who speak Spanish!
Being such a remote destination, travelers who make the leap to the Antipodes often stay on the road and, if they arrive in New Zealand, they usually visit.
In this way, the wonders of Australia’s little sister are left for the enjoyment of a privileged few.
New Zealand educational institutions have good academic standing
Most New Zealand higher education institutions remain at the top of the rankings of the best universities in the world.
When you finish studying you will have a great added value in your curriculum with which you will be able to differentiate yourself when it comes to finding a job .
Also, if you want to improve your English , in New Zealand you will find thousands of English courses that adapt to your needs.
You will have unbeatable landscapes to lose yourself in them
If you decide to study and work in New Zealand, you will have the opportunity to escape every weekend to the scenes of the “Lord of the Rings”.
The imposing nature is one of the highlights of the Kiwi country . Glaciers, mountains, fjords, light caves or geothermal parks are some of the gifts that New Zealand will give you during your stay.
In addition to its natural wealth, its fauna is not far behind. You can find penguins, sea lions, parrots of all colors and, of course, their characteristic national bird: the kiwi .
You will be a stone’s throw from heavenly destinations
If after delving into the wonderful nature that New Zealand offers you , you have still wanted more, you can catch a plane and in a short time plant in spectacular destinations such as Fiji, New Caledonia, Tasmania or Australia .

Maori culture is present throughout the country : you can hear what the Maori language sounds like on TV, join a Maori hangi or banquet and attend cultural performances with Maori songs and dances.
