Cost of Living
New Zealand is a value for money study destination.
New Zealand's practical, hands-on teaching style encourages you to think independently, critically and creatively while you’re studying abroad.
Learning in small classes with a high teacher/student ratio, you'll gain real-world experience for your future engineering career. You’ll be supported by friendly, approachable teachers who are leaders in their field and have close ties to industry.
Choose New Zealand for your overseas engineering studies and you'll benefit from a lifestyle that gives you more time to do the things you love.
Our exceptional work/life balance lets you see friends, follow your interests and explore nature - without the crowds. We consistently lead global quality of life surveys, and are ranked the second most peaceful nation on Earth.
Studying engineering in New Zealand is great value for money, and you can offset the costs of living overseas by working while you study.
You may be able to work up to 20 hours during the term and full-time during the holidays - or with no restrictions if you're a PhD or Masters by research student. You'll also improve your English and gain workplace experience while you're studying abroad.
Studying engineering here gives you an edge in the global jobs market and prepares you to succeed anywhere in the world.
You'll gain internationally-recognised qualifications, vocational experience and generic skills such as teamwork and leadership. You may also be able to work in New Zealand after graduating - we need more engineers.
