NZ and Australia are the next best secret, thats why you wouldnt get much info on here. 9ja folk messed up the Uk, ireland,us, and canada and a few other destinations. You will be fine here if you are legitimate. very multicultural. lots of jobs , Never witnessed racism..u'L be suprised how influence the hip hop culture has...laid back..they have many public holidays usually to mix the weekend. nz passport can reside indefinitely in aussie and vice versa...if you can keep cool and invest financially in a course that is needed (skilled) will pay off a path to residency and susequently citizenship. skools are good and expensive. bottom line is u need lots of cash for studies and accomodation as they rarely give scholarships. u L be on the nxt flight home if u become homeless and dont attend classes. avoid hustling or illegal Africans. ur 9ja passport must not expire here cos no 9ja embassy. avoid christchuch cos of flood and earthquakes. Your hard work pays off here but u l be 38 hrs away from naija.

I did...dont come study course wey dem no need if u want to stay to get residence. finance, bis admin, chemistry are nt needed so package ursef...nursing,social work, physical therapy, engineers e.t.c. so yeah all up to u.

@dinlin
Diploma,bsc,msc,phd-at what levels of study are you referring to?

Pls make it clearer that folks should not depend on this 20hr/wk work oo.
Re: General New Zealand Student Enquires by dinlin: 11:35am On Jul 22, 2014
@cconcept, it depends. when I got here diploma in early chilhood studies was a years course that could lead to residence. clinary certificate for chefs was on the list. diploma in hospitality, diploma in applid sciences(anaethetic technician) b.sc occupational therapy, masters in clinical psycology. medical laboratory degree,mbbs for docs and ph.ds in any field as univ. lecturers and so on..are on the shortage list....so it varies widely. 20 Hrs a wk may only help with accomodation. visit NZ immigration for more info.

Thanks bro...you're already doing a great job here!
Now, let's say one want a course in demand as yours to be finished in a year in order to get residency and start work, how much would such person spend for that one year course?
actually most of us are looking for greener pastures that's why one would like to know what it will cost him or her to acquire education or a skill that will earn him financial freedom in less time.
so, how much would they like to see in ones account statement ie for a person coming for that one year course?
thanks in advance!

@JustCare, a sayin goes like this "the numbers after 7 is more than just 8". what I mean here is that u got to build on the little info that you get on here. do ur own further finding and google search. see what more you can discover. My few ABC here might not be adequate to spark ur dreams in motion...tuition is abt 16 to 21 depending on institution you choose...how much in ur bank statement? Am sure you are not naive or new to making overseas travel application. Hence, a typical statement that u will submit if u were gona study in the Uk or Us would do i guess. dont use bogus or fake papers...10 years ban mate..and they do confirm every bit of info u suppy to the T. they also run an advance passanger screening on u..so if uve applied to UK,US,Canada,australia..better be truthful as they share info on a central system to protect their borders...naija application is considered a high rish..so like I said previously..visit NZ immigration and double check d info there...its worth it

@cconcept, NZ is family friendly, multicultural with maoris(natives), the white majority, asians, pacific islanders and others..most africans are refugees..people party alot here and hav a drinkin problem...an average naija student shuld pass easily as they do more practical hands on training than theory(naija vice versa)...big hiphop culture.lots of jobs dependin on skills, closest neighbour is 3hrs flight away to sydney..stay in cities for job access.. auckland is the largest city n u need a car to get arnd and its right hand drive..sub tropical climate...its winter now in july...hamilton city is good..wellington is windy but nice, avoid christchurch. dunedin is bitter cold but great uni Otago. queenstown if u r into skiing and climbing stuff, Nelson if u love wines..Auckld uni, AUT uni, massey uni, Otago uni, waikato uni..are world recognised..tho they are better in specific courses...eg..otago boast best health programs in Nz...no snakes or wild animals.. u gotta work hard to pay bills...

bro, I once applied as a conference attendant before and was denied by NZ embassy in pretoria..I want to now applied for a vocational study or a certificate study like a year...what's my chance? Can I see one of $5000? And a school told me they have denied many Nigerians that I shouldn't border to apply that I would be denied because many Nigerians have miss-used the opportunity...how true is that?

It looks like with all these risk factors,Nigerians have a date with IPG. What do you think?
Re: General New Zealand Student Enquires by dinlin: 9:50pm On Jul 25, 2014
Yeah u r right. lucky if one gets a date with IPG...oh boy! they can take their time running worldwide checks on u..they liase wit IOM for 9ja checks..ve heard checks taking up to 2 years..lol

What is IOM? I guess not every Nigerian gets a date.
I have been reading a lot of complaint on IPG racial profiling,seems some advocacy groups are taking them on.nobody even knows the country list they work on.its very secretive.

2yrs to do checks?...

@cconcept, yeah faceless section of NZ immigration(even a case officer doent know much if u ask why your application is taking forever to decide, cos they put u on hold until they establish ur identity and history) ...heard they prevent terrorists from getting through the borders...they supposedly got an uncle of saddam tryna seek asylum..I bet 9ja is on the list as well..They work with international organisation for migration, Nigerian branch.
