The Government has announced that English language students choosing New Zealand for their study experience will have the opportunity to work part-time while on a Student Visa of 14 weeks or more.

We welcome and are grateful for the new work rights, and we are pleased that it will enable us to broaden the types of market and student that we can cater for. The policy levels the playing field with Australia and we look forward to renewing a healthy rivalry with our friends across the Tasman.
