Many times, when we think of New Zealand, the first thing that comes to our mind is its picturesque landscapes and mountainous terrain. However, did you know that New Zealand has more to offer than its scenery? 

As a student, here are 9 Reasons Why You Should Study in New Zealand

New Zealand is indeed the best choice for you as a student. The NZ government places their education system on a high-pedestal where its budget allocation on education is one of the highest among Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) members. 

Other than that, New Zealand is also home to one of the World’s Top Universities, The University of Auckland with its comprehensive range of courses and strong reputation for its quality. Students can also expect a sufficiently low cost of living when studying in New Zealand where you will need an average of RM463/monthly for its public transportation. 

But what else does this country has to offer other than its top-notched education?

Well, if you are a movie-freak, we are certain you have heard of The Lord of the Rings. This was where the film was entirely shot. Now can you imagine how beautiful this country is? In fact, New Zealand was also named in Lonely Planet’s Best of Travel for 2018. Maybe you can seize this opportunity to explore New Zealand's mesmerising landscape with your friends while you are there!

International students are also fortunate as the New Zealand government allows you to work part-time for a maximum of 20 hours/week and a maximum of 40 hours/week for a full-time job during semester breaks. However, if you are a PhD or Masters by research candidate, there are basically no restrictions on the hours you can work.

Did you also know that there are over 17,000 restaurants in New Zealand featuring a variety of international cuisines? So anytime you crave for food that reminds you of home, New Zealand has it all!
