Abroad Study

Studying abroad provides a multitude of reasons why it is an incredible opportunity for personal and academic growth. Firstly, it allows individuals to access high-quality education from renowned universities and colleges around the world. By studying abroad, students have the chance to learn from experts in their field, gain exposure to cutting-edge research, and experience different teaching methods that can enhance their academic development.

Moreover, studying abroad offers a unique cultural immersion experience. Living in a foreign country exposes individuals to diverse traditions, customs, and perspectives, fostering a deep understanding and appreciation of different cultures. This exposure broadens global awareness and intercultural competence, allowing students to develop a more inclusive and open-minded perspective.

Language skills are another compelling reason to study abroad. Being surrounded by native speakers and immersing oneself in a language allows for rapid language acquisition and fluency development. The ability to communicate in multiple languages is a valuable asset in today’s interconnected world and can significantly broaden career prospects.

Studying abroad is also a catalyst for personal development. It challenges individuals to step out of their comfort zones, adapt to new environments, and become more independent and resilient. Students gain valuable life skills such as problem-solving, decision-making, and cross-cultural communication, which contribute to personal growth and self-confidence.

Furthermore, studying abroad facilitates the expansion of networks. Engaging with fellow students from around the world cultivates diverse friendships and fosters intercultural dialogue. These connections can provide a lifelong network of international contacts, opening doors to global collaborations and future professional opportunities.

In terms of career prospects, studying abroad sets individuals apart in a competitive job market. Employers often value the international experience gained from studying abroad, as it demonstrates qualities such as adaptability, cultural sensitivity, and a global mindset. Additionally, studying in prestigious institutions or countries known for their expertise in specific fields can enhance one’s credentials and provide a competitive edge in the job market.

The opportunity to travel and explore is another exciting aspect of studying abroad. It allows students to discover new countries, experience different cultures, and visit historical landmarks and natural wonders. This exposure not only enriches their education but also creates lasting memories and broadens their horizons.

Studying abroad provides a global perspective on various issues. Interacting with classmates from diverse backgrounds stimulates discussions and exposes individuals to different viewpoints. This exposure fosters critical thinking and an understanding of global challenges, encouraging individuals to become global citizens and contribute positively to society.

Ultimately, studying abroad is a deeply fulfilling experience that allows individuals to discover themselves, develop independence, and create lifelong memories. It broadens horizons, instills a sense of adventure, and cultivates a global perspective. Despite the challenges involved, the benefits of studying abroad make it an opportunity worth pursuing for those seeking personal and academic growth.

Initially, I had doubts and apprehensions about seeking career guidance from educational consultants. Study abroad was best decision of my life or may be second best, as the best would be to approach Ved International for career guidance. Mr. Ashik Karki provided me many options for my choice.

I trouble him with my never ending list of question but he always got back with a smile on his face and addressed all my queries with patience and kindness. He guided me regarding the selection of college, courses, admission procedure, finance, visa application and what not.

Its because of Ved today I can proudly say that I am a student of HIBT. I take the opportunity to thank Ved International Education Consultancy for their advice and support. Especially, I would like to thank ASHIK KARKI and Mabila Khadka.

“VED International, hope for the future.”

Introducing myself into VED family is one of the best thing happened in my life.   I went to many consultancies but I chose it because the way they gave me suggestions, felt me like they gave to their own brother. Even in every processing step they gave me best suggestion for those similar step.  I started my processing from January first week and my visa came in February first week. I felt so lucky that I chose VED INTERNATIONAL.   So I suggest other students also who are aiming for abroad study in any other country, kindly visit once in VED INTERNATIONAL and evaluate yourself about VED.”

RGIT is an institution where I found supportive faculty members, so that I could enhance my studies in a better way. Also, the affordable fees with quality education is the plus point for every student. I would recommend everyone to join RGIT for quality abroad studies.

Dear Brother,
I have known you and your organization from the last 8 months, and Today i can say that i have made a really good relation with the entire tem of VED and i am a part of It and it makes me feel really happy.

From the very beginning  from taking ielts classes to the visa approved day,the process seems so easy to me because the entire team of VED was so much loving , caring , supportive and more like a family to me, so i never felt like dealing with an organization but felt more like home. So, i wrote dear brother,instead of sir therefore i always felt like being with family at home.

I am so much thankful towards the entire team of VED for everything i recieved from you  and for the things that i learned and will be learning from in future.I wish to always be part of this family and wish for this organization to get more bigger and more successful.

Your loving brother
Well wisher

Applaud for Team Ved

Always confusing to choose the bestest among the bests. I am very glad that I chose team Ved for visa processing. Went to many good consultancies having great visa success but none of them could satisfy and guide  me to take correct decisions about my further study, career,future and my dream of coming to land of kangaroos. The young team members led by M.D. of Team Ved Mr. Ashik Karki supported me like father supporting to his child  from beginning of processing, documentation to grant of visa as well as the time I flew for my destination and are still supporting me to achieve my goals.Anyone willing for abroad study can visit to them and I am sure none of them would be sad. I am very thankful to Team Ved for each effort they put on for my visa. I hope and wish for continuous success of your team.

Best Wishes !!😊😊

‘विदेशको ज्ञान र सीपलाई स्वदेशमा सदुपयोग गर्नसके सुनमा सुगन्ध हुन्छ’

50 Things to know before going Australia.

Is the land down under calling? How could it not be with its thousands of pristine beaches, its funny and unique wildlife and its rusty red centre? Not only does Australia boast some of the most impressive natural wonders in the world (think the ancient Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef), but its cities are hip and cultured and its people are some of the friendliest you’ll find anywhere in the world. If you’re planning your first trip to Oz, there are a few things you should know first including what you should REALLY be cautious of (not just the dangerous animals), how far your dollar is going to go and the best way to understand these strange Aussie folk. No, don’t go to Australia without first understanding these 50 things!

50 essential things to know about Australia before you go:
1. Australia is massive. Okay, you knew that but did you know that it’s just about as big as the USA? To see it in all its glory, you’re going to need lots of time and lots of money.

2. The capital city is Canberra but don’t spend a huge amount of time there. Hit up Australia’s capital of all things cool, Melbourne, instead.

3. The kangaroo population is VERY healthy in Australia – so much so they can be considered a pest and are even eaten for food.

4. Everything will kill you. Kidding. Almost everything will kill you.

5. There’s more than 10,000 beaches in Australia, so you won’t have any trouble finding one to have all to yourself.

6. It takes ages to fly anywhere. If you want to fly from the east to west coast, it will take around five and a half hours.

7. Australians drive on the left side of the road.

8. Don’t tip. No one expects it and wages are very high.

9. You’ll need to buy a travel adaptor. Your European, North American and UK plugs are no good over here.

10. There aren’t kangaroos, wombats and koalas hanging out everywhere. The best chance to see them is by going to a sanctuary unless you want to head inland to spot them in the wild. If you’re in Far North Queensland, here’s where to have the best wildlife experiences.

11. Internet is really slow in Australia compared to other parts of the world.

12. Australians like to shorten all of their words so be prepared to decode what ‘arvo’, ‘avo’ and ‘breaky’ mean.

13. You can’t ‘do’ Australia in a couple of weeks. It’s just far too big. You’re best to pick a small region to explore thoroughly. If you try and do too much, you’ll end up spending most of your trip travelling and not actually experiencing anything.

14. Go to a shop and buy a packet of Tim Tams. They will change your life.

15. There’s a reason why Australia is nicknamed ‘the sunburnt country’ – the sun here will burn you like nowhere else. There’s a massive hole in the ozone layer right above australia meaning that there’s next to no protection from the harsh UV rays so you need to slip, slop and slap on the sunscreen! 15+ sunscreen just isn’t going to cut it here. You’ll need 30+ or 50+ instead.

16. Australia is home to the oldest, living civilization on the planet. The Aborigines have inhabited Australia for over 40,000 years.

17. There are quokkas on Rottnest Island! You’re totally going to want to get a selfie with one.

18. Alcohol is really expensive in Australia due to heavy taxes. Expect to pay at least $10 for a glass of wine or a pint of beer.

19. Traveling to and within Australia is also very expensive. Budget at least $150 per day for a (cheapness) hotel, food and activities.

20. Everyone goes to Sydney, but Melbourne is the much cooler city, full of street art and culture.

21. Always swim between the flags on Australian beaches. The currents and waves are powerful. Far too many tourists drown every year after overestimating their swimming ability in these waters. There’s even a whole TV show dedicated to saving people at Bondi Beach.

22. Most people in Australia live around it’s edge, within 50km of the coast. If you plan on heading into the red centre, it is incredibly remote and home to very few towns and people.

23. Australians love their thongs and walk around in them all day long.

24. There’s some great craft beers but stay away from the mainstream stuff. Yuck.

25. The food in Australia is some of the best you’ll get in the world. The ingredients are so fresh and Australians are really in tune with healthy living and eating. You’ll find acai bowls, avocado toast and green smoothies aplenty.

26. Australia has multiple climates so depending on how far north or south you go, be prepared to pack for quite different weather conditions.

27. Watch where you’re walking when you go hiking or walk through vegetation. There could be snakes.

28. Don’t swim in tropical north Australian beaches during the summer months as poisonous marine stingers are present in the waters. Always heed the warning signs.

29. Some Aussies’ accents are so thick, you might not be able to understand them. This is particularly likely in more rural areas where the accent is much stronger.

30. Any visit to Australia MUST include a visit to the Great Barrier Reef. Climate change is real folks and, devastatingly, it’s killing the reef as we speak. Go see it before it’s too late.

31. If you’re driving, it’s illegal to even touch your phone. Keep your hands on the wheel at all times.

32. If you’re road tripping in remote regions, make sure you’re over-prepared. Petrol stations and supplies can be few and far between and you want to be almost entirely self-sufficient. Make sure you have phone coverage for emergencies.

33. About two thirds of Australia is desert. If you want to drive into the outback, the environment is pretty hostile and unforgiving.

34. Bushfires are a threat over the summer months so monitor the conditions and be prepared if you’re in rural areas.

35. You’ll become a coffee snob before the end of your trip and you’ll find that terms like ‘flat white’, ‘aeropress’ and ‘cold brew’ will have replaced your previous vocabulary of ‘cappuccino’, ‘americano’ and ‘percolator’.

36. You can drive on the beach on Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world.

37. Temperatures can vary considerably within only a few days so be prepared for all kinds of weather. In the Australian summer in Melbourne for example, it can be 36 degrees one day and 18 the next.

38. Breakfast is not a standard inclusion for hotel stays in Australia. Be prepared to buy your own or fork out extra for an expensive breakfast at the hotel.

39. Cards are accepted mostly everywhere, even for a cup of coffee.

40. People do say ‘g’day’, but you’ll hear it more so in country towns and not as often in cities.

41. You can’t really call the Australian winter a real winter. Temperatures in Melbourne don’t really dip below 11°C during the day and further north in Brisbane, winter temperatures can reach over 20°C!

42. Uluru is the most expensive destination in Australia. There aren’t many accommodation options there so be prepared to pay an arm and a leg for a bed.

43. It’s illegal to drink alcohol in public places like beaches, parks and on the street. It sucks.

44. Smoking is prohibited in restaurants, bars, cafés, nightclubs and basically all enclosed public spaces. No one wants to deal with your cancer-causing second-hand smoke thank you very much.

45. Over 80% of Australia’s animals are unique and you won’t find them anywhere else in the world.

46. Don’t try and bring any food into the country. Australia has very strict quarantine laws and customs officers will not be impressed. It’s best to leave all your food on the plane.

47. If you’re paying in cash, everything is rounded up to the nearest five cents. No more annoying one and two cent coins.

48. The flies really are that bad.

49. You don’t have to worry about snakes and spiders too much in the city, but you do in the country.

50. You’re going to have the trip of a lifetime! Seriously though, Australia is the best place on earth.

An Int’l Student’s Guide to Living with Roommates

How to have a great roommate experience
In your first year at a U.S. university, you may share a room with one or two other people. Your roommates may be international students, or they may be Americans. Either way, you’ll need to learn to share your space.

College may be the first time you live with someone who is not a member of your family. If you are new to having a roommate, you might not be sure what to expect. Although every roommate relationship is different, there are some things you can do to make the experience as pleasant as possible. You might even end up with a new best friend.

Connect before move-in day
In many cases, you’ll know who your roommate is long before you move in. Start talking to them as soon as you can. Email, social media, and even video calls can help you get to know your roommate, so you already feel comfortable with them before you have to share a room.

Agree on rules and chores
Setting rules from the beginning can make living together more comfortable. For example, you may want to set a rule that you always use headphones when listening to music or watching a movie. Or you might want to agree that lights out is at 10 p.m. on days when either of you has class in the morning. Be prepared to compromise.

Agree on chores as early as possible, too. Whose job is it to sweep the floor, wash the windows, or take out the trash? Have a conversation with your roommate early so you don’t end up fighting over chores later.

Be Friendly
Living with someone new can be stressful at first. When people are stressed, they’re not always at their best. Try to be friendly but don’t assume that you and your roommate are going to be best friends. For example, you might invite them to eat lunch with you once a week, but don’t assume that you’ll eat every meal together every day.

Your roommate can’t read your mind. They might do something that annoys you without them realizing it. They might even do something that seems rude or offensive. When this happens, remember that your roommate has a different family, background, and culture than you do. Your roommate’s idea of what is polite may not be the same as yours.

Don’t assume that your roommate knows when they’ve offended you or made you uncomfortable. Tell them. For example, in some cultures, people take their shoes off when they enter someone’s home. In other cultures, people leave their shoes on. You might think it’s disrespectful to wear shoes in the room, while your roommate thinks it’s perfectly normal. They won’t know what’s bothering you unless you tell them.

Respect your roommate
Respecting your roommate is the most important thing you can do to have a positive roommate relationship. Be respectful of your roommate’s time, personal space, and possessions. You can show respect by:

Keeping shared living spaces clean – When you share a room, your mess affects your roommate. Throw away your trash, keep your clothes off the floor, and clean up any messes you make.

Giving them space – Don’t open your roommate’s drawers, closets or bags without asking first. Don’t use their things without asking. Everyone needs privacy.

Asking before bringing friends home – Your roommate may have a big test to study for, not feel well, or may simply need time to relax. There are many places you can go on campus to spend time with your friends, but you only have one room of your own. If your roommate doesn’t want company, don’t force it on them.

Following the rules you set together.
If you’re respectful of your roommate’s needs, they will be more likely to respect yours as well. Communicate openly and often to build a positive relationship between you and your roommate.

Few terms what means in UK higher education

Higher education in the UK

A levelThe General Certificate of Education Advanced Level (GCE A level, or more commonly the A level), is an academic qualification taken in England, Wales and Northern Ireland by students completing further education (secondary or pre-university education).

GTE genuine temporary entrant : What do we require ?

The Department of Home Affair’s defines GTE as ‘The genuine temporary entrant (GTE) requirement is an integrity measure to ensure the student visa program is used as intended and not as a way for international students to maintain ongoing residency in Australia’.

All applicants for a Student visa must show they are coming to Australia temporarily to gain a quality education. The Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) requirement is not intended to exclude students who, after studying in Australia, develop skills Australia needs and who then go on to apply for permanent residence.

As an applicant provide a personal statement in English addressing the GTE requirement. If you are not comfortable writing it in English, you can write your statement in your own language and submit a translated copy with your application.

You can provide further details of the written statement in the application form or attach a separate document with supporting documents.

Documents :

  • Transcripts of previous study.
  • Statement of Purpose — brief but relevant addressing GTE criteria, include explanation for gaps in previous study.
  • Current employment documents – current employer, company address, period of employment and details about the position held.
  • Documents showing economic circumstances in home country or country of residence.
  • Ties to home country or country of residence – this may include evidence of financial, family or social ties.


Evidence Levels :

  • SSVF uses a combination of immigration risk outcomes of the student’s education provider and the student’s country of citizenship to indicate whether the student needs to provide evidence of financial capacity and English language proficiency.
  • They are not an indicator for the quality of an education provider or the course they offer
  • They do not have any specific bearing on our assessment of GTE.
  • Evidence Levels are not published publicly as the information is confidential and sensitive. Individual providers can access their EL on a monthly basis by subscribing to the education provider reports.




Happy Teej

Teej, short for Hartalika Teej, is the fasting festival of women in Nepal. It usually takes place in Nepali Bhadra month (August to September in Solar Calendar) and lasts for three days. Teej Puja is particularly held at Pashupatinath to commemorate the reunion of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva. During Teej Festival, Nepalese women will dress in their beautiful red saris, fast to honor Lord Shiva, and pray for a happy marriage.

On this particular day, the streets of Kathmandu have turned into a sea of red with women dressing in beautiful saris.


How and when international students use school websites and social media in planning for study abroad

Short on time? Here are the highlights:

    • Students find university websites the most useful tool in their research when planning to study abroad


  • Websites should prioritise teaching quality, accommodation information, student testimonials, graduate outcomes
  • Digital formats are preferred regarding marketing collateral such as brochures
  • Social media is an ideal place to convey a feeling among prospective students that they will be happy on campus, functioning as a “sneak peek” at the student experience


More than three-quarters (77%) of international students responding to 2019 QS’s International Student Survey said that the most useful source of information for them when researching an institution abroad was the school’s website.

The survey – which is the world’s largest pre-enrolment survey of international students – gathered data on how students use a range of information sources, what information they’re looking for, and how social media use is changing. This year’s survey was conducted from November 2018 to March 2019 among over 75,000 students and 71 universities.

Strong website strategy is a must

The crucial role of the school website in students’ research reinforces the importance of creating an attractive, intuitive, and mobile-optimised website that prioritises the information students care about the most. As we have discussed in other articles, key considerations for international students today are:

The following graphic from the QS report reinforces many of these points.

The types of information that are most influential in choice of institution or school for prospective international students. Source: QS

The survey report notes that,

“High quality teaching [is] a key consideration for prospective international students and demonstrates why universities need to be vigilant in updating and promoting their lecturer profiles online. It also showcases how much prospective students value the opinions and experiences of existing international students. Universities should facilitate this by offering several communication channels between prospective students and current students.”

Students also find general search and university rankings useful

After school websites, students found the following to be the most useful tools in their research: general online search (62%), rankings (47%), course finder websites (35%), and institution information sessions/events (33%).

Fewer than three in ten students mentioned sources like discussions with university staff (28%), family and friends (27%), and university brochures/prospectuses (26%).

Consider parents in marketing

While university brochures were cited only by a quarter of students, notable is the fact that 22% of students said they read these brochures (or prospectuses) with their parents. This is a significant finding since the survey also found that two-thirds of students are influenced by their parents when making study abroad choices. Other recent research has also emphasised the great influence that parents continue to have on student decision making.

When designing and writing copy for brochures, then, marketing staff should therefore keep in mind that their audience includes parents as well as students.

Another important finding related to brochures is that students prefer digital formats (51%) to print brochures (20%), and part of the reason for this is that they want to avoid printed brochures because these are less environmentally friendly. Two points arise from this:

  • We may be at or near the point where printed marketing material can be greatly reduced;
  • Student choice and general outlook is ever more concerned with the environment, a fact that should resonate across the marketing effort as well as on campuses.

Role of social media

Not surprisingly, a great majority (85%) of students said they use social media in their research regarding study abroad, and the survey found that the range of platforms students are accessing has expanded, with YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn increasing in importance.

QS provides an interesting breakdown of when students use social media. Seventy percent are turning to social platforms before they make an enquiry, with smaller – but significant – percentages going on these platforms further along in the enrolment funnel.

The implication here is that students are often looking for a general sense – which we could even consider a gut feeling – of whether a school is the right fit for them on social media. They want to see examples of:

  • Happy, successful students – ideally a mix of domestic and international students;
  • Lovely, vibrant campuses;
  • Exciting recreational activities;
  • Nice accommodation.

Social media is ideally suited for triggering emotion among prospective international students, while other tools – chats with admissions staff, emails, brochures, etc. – can be employed to deliver more detailed, practical information, especially as the student progresses further along the enrolment funnel.

Joint media release – Supporting international students to support Australian jobs

The Morrison Government is making a number of changes to student visa arrangements to ensure Australia remains a priority destination for international students as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.

International students are extremely important to Australia and our economy, contributing $40 billion annually and supporting 250,000 jobs. Many also go on to become great Australian citizens.

While the closure of our international borders has been critical to our success in slowing the spread of the coronavirus, and Australia has been a leader in this regard, it has presented challenges to the education sector and students, both here and offshore.

These five visa changes will ensure international students are not worse off due to the coronavirus pandemic and that Australia remains competitive with other countries.

The changes include:

  • The Government will recommence granting student visas in all locations lodged outside Australia. This means when borders re-open, students will already have visas and be able to make arrangements to travel.
  • International students will be able to lodge a further student visa application free of charge, if they are unable to complete their studies within their original visa validity due to COVID-19.
  • Student visa holders studying online outside Australia due to COVID-19 will be able to use that study to count towards the Australian study requirement for a post-study work visa.
  • Graduates who held a student visa will be eligible to apply for a post-study work visa outside Australia if they are unable to return due to COVID-19.
  • Additional time will be given for applicants to provide English language results where COVID-19 has disrupted access to these services.

Acting Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs Alan Tudge said the changes provide assurance to international students already in Australia and those who haven’t been able to travel due to COVID-19 border closures.

“These measures back the international education sector – our fourth largest export sector – and will assist its recovery,” Mr Tudge said.

“In making these changes, we have been guided by the principles that the health of Australians is key, but that international students should not be further disadvantaged by COVID-19.

“We are a welcoming nation with a world-class education system and some of the lowest rates of COVID-19 in the world. Students want to study here and we want to welcome them back in a safe and measured way when it is safe to do so.

“Doing so will not only support the education sector, it will also have flow-on effects for many local communities and businesses, including accommodation services, tourism, hospitality and retail.”

Minister for Education Dan Tehan said the changes would give international students confidence in their visa arrangements so they can make plans to study in Australia when it is safe to do so.

“Our remarkable efforts in controlling the spread of the virus mean we can begin to welcome back international students in a COVID safe way once state borders re-open and face-to-face learning resumes,” Mr Tehan said.

“As well as supporting jobs, international education builds our connection to the rest of the world and supports a number of critical industries like health, aged and disability care.”

The Government has previously relaxed work restrictions for international students working in the health, aged and disability care sectors during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has also been flexible in cases where the COVID-19 pandemic has prevented international students meeting their visa conditions, such as not being able attend classes in person.

New assessment model for international nurses

Nurses and midwives with international qualifications arriving in Australia will be offered the choice of either a bridging course or OBA to register in Australia from October 1, 2019.

A year after the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) announced the introduction of a new assessment model for internationally qualified nurses and midwives to attain registration in the country, the board has declared that the new system will come into effect from October 1 this year.

At present, internationally qualified nurses and midwives (IQNMs) who arrive in Australia holding qualifications which are relevant but not substantially equivalent to the Australian qualifications have to undergo a bridging program to attain the registration required to work in the country.

However from next month NMBA will introduce a new assessment model giving candidates the option to choose between the bridging course and the outcomes-based-assessment (OBA) which will be available from January 2020.

“The new model known as outcomes-based-assessment (OBA) will commence in January 2020,” the NMBA said in a statement.

“From January 2020, all IQNMs with relevant but not substantially equivalent qualifications will be referred to the OBA,” the statement reads. There will not be any new referrals to the bridging program from next year.

“The priority of the assessment model is public safety and ensuring that all individuals registered as a nurse or midwife in Australia are meeting the same standards, regardless of where they gained their qualifications,” an NMBA spokesperson tells SBS Malayalam.

New assesment for internationally qualified nurses

“Since 2014, IQNMs wanting to register in Australia have been assessed under an interim model of assessment, while the Board undertook an extensive research project to develop a permanent model of assessment. The new model of assessment is based on the recommendations of that research and international best practice,” NMBA added.

OBA to replace bridging course

From the October 1, IQNMs who arrive in Australia will be offered to opt-out either the bridging course or OBA to work in the country. But those applying from the January 1 2020, will not be offered the choice of two models.

Those applying from January 1 2020 will only be able to choose OBA, as this will completely replace the current bridging course from 2021.

“Bridging programs are expected to continue until 2021, for IQNMs who hold a referral to bridging. IQNMs will no longer be referred to bridging programs from January 2020,” reads the statement from NMBA.

What is OBA?

The outcomes-based-assessment model or OBA that will replace the bridging course consists of two parts. This includes a multiple-choice exam, followed by an objective structured clinical exam (OSCE), which is currently implemented in many countries.

While the first part is a computer-based multiple-choice cognitive assessment, the second part is behavioural assessment in the form of an objective structured clinical examination (OSCE).

Those applicants who pass the first stage will be able to go through to the second part of the OBA.

Objective structured clinical examination (OSCE)

According to NMBA, the OSCE is used to assess whether an IQNM possesses the knowledge,

skills and competence of a graduate-level Australian nurse or midwife.

“OSCE implemented in many countries including the United Kingdom is basically to assess how a nurse

or midwife can handle the patients in different scenarios in a simulation environment,

” Kunnumpurathu Bijo, the CEO of Melbourne based Institute of Health and Management, tells SBS Malayalam.

“In the OSCE implemented in the UK the IQNMs need to demonstrate their skills in handling a patient in that country, in the presence of a clinical educator who observes them.

It covers every aspect, like their communication to the patient, clinical decision making and practice standards,” says Mr. Bijio.

“However, in the UK, OSCE can only be attempted three times and needs proper training to crack it,” adds Bijo.

Orientation to be completed

Once the two-stage assessment process is completed.

All IQNMs will also be required to complete an orientation program consisting of three stages.

While stage one is an online assessment to introduce IQNMs to Australia

and the Australian healthcare system, stage two covers the diversity of Australian culture.

This will be completed once the IQNMs are registered with the NMBA.

The third stage of the orientation program will be provided by the IQNM’s employer, based on NMBA guidelines.

“All the nurses and midwives arriving in Australia will have to complete this orientation program from next year,”

says Jaison Thomas an Education Consultant at Sanjose Consultacy in Melbourne to SBS Malayalam.

“The new model is expected to benefit the applicants financially as the adaptation program in Australia

Australia is very expensive now when compared to other countries,” he adds.

New Zealand educators raise the alarm about visa delays

Short on time? Here are the highlights:

    • A new briefing document sets out that processing times for New Zealand study visas have grown considerably this year


  • The longer processing times are a function of increased application volumes during the peak summer period as well as a consolidation of New Zealand’s offshore applicant operations to two major centres in Mumbai and Beijing
  • The government is now actively working with international education stakeholders to try and improve visa processing times


A recently released ministerial briefing document from Education New Zealand (ENZ) makes it clear that the country’s educators are concerned about substantial delays in student visa processing this year.

The brief, which was originally provided to Minister of Education Chris Hipkins on 28 March 2019, was recently published by the ENZ under its “proactive release” policy.

“Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has provided fortnightly visa processing updates to the sector, containing statistics on processing times and approval rates,” notes the report. “This data shows a significant slowdown in processing times…ongoing visa processing delays are impacting negatively on New Zealand’s attractiveness and competitiveness as an international education market.”

While all types of institutions have been affected by the slower processing times, ENZ notes that delays have been especially severe for the institutes of technology and polytechnics (ITPs) and private training establishments (PTEs) sectors. INZ statistics, that were also published as part of the ENZ brief, highlights that the percentage of files for ITP-admitted students that were decided within 30 days dropped to just under 54% for the period 1 November 2018 through 11 March 2019, compared to 91% of applications decided within 30 days for the same period the year prior.

Similarly, the proportion of visa applications processed within 30 days for PTE-admitted students, dropped from 91% to 65% for the same reference period.

The brief makes clear as well that the severity of the delays varies not only by provider type but also by the student’s home region, and adds, “ENZ’s international team is hearing every week from agents and students frustrated by the process and documentation requirements for student visa applications…Where markets are experiencing an increase in risk and/or delays, agents are questioning whether they should continue to market New Zealand.”

ENZ adds that the widespread delays could impact on New Zealand’s current goal to increase the value of its education exports to NZ$6billion by 2025. It estimates the lost revenues for ITPs alone at more than NZ$33 million in just the four months from November 2018 through February 2019.

Restructuring and the summer peak

For its part, INZ attributes the slower processing times this year to higher application volumes during the peak summer period as well as two structural changes within the department.

First, late last year, New Zealand consolidated all of its visa processing operations for offshore applicants into two major centres. Under this new approach, the first, in Beijing, is responsible for Chinese visitor and student visas. The second, in Mumbai, now processes student visas for all applicants from the rest of the world.

ENZ has observed significant differences in processing performance between the two centres, with processing times in Mumbai lagging well behind those in Beijing. INZ officials point out that Mumbai is working to manage higher annual volumes of applications this year, and also handles a higher proportion of first-time applicants than does Beijing.

“INZ’s Mumbai office is the primary hub for first-time student visa applications, and is boosting processing capacity to manage the increase in volume, with additional staff already recruited,” adds INZ’s Assistant General Manager, Education and Tourism, Jeannie Melville.

Second, the department has now also implemented more stringent visa screening process under its Striking the Balance strategy, which, as the name implies, seeks to strike “the right balance between facilitating legitimate travellers and protecting migrants and New Zealand.” In a separate statement, ENZ reports that, “Since the start of the peak student visa processing season in November 2018, INZ has seen an increase in applications from students who require a greater level of assessment and verification. These applications take longer to process and, as a result, people have not received visas within the period of time they expected.”

Speaking to Radio New Zealand, Immigration Minister Iain Lees-Galloway expressed the government’s commitment to improving visa processing times. “I have raised those concerns with Immigration New Zealand,” said the minister, “and have asked that they report to me regularly on this issue. Officials from INZ and ENZ have been directed to work together to find a solution to this issue.”

Tundikhel the central point of the city where many events take place. A grand horse parade takes place here today as it is called Ghode Jatra” Festival of Horses”. Legend has it that the demon Tundi was killed here. Ghode Jatra, the Horse Racing Day falls in mid-March or early April (April 5, this year).

Tundi had terrorized people for a long time until one day he was slain and people rejoiced by riding horses over his body. So it’s believed that the clamor of horses’ hooves at Tundikhel during the festival of Ghode Jatra keeps the demon’s spirit at bay as it is believed he is still a threat to the city.

It is said that the faster the horses run, the quicker Tundi’s spirit will be subdued; hence the horse racing and all the acrobatics at Tudikhel. The festival is attended by the army top brass, the top government officials and diplomats.

Huge crowds gather around Tudikhel to watch but they are not allowed to enter the Tudikhel. The army also takes it as an opportunity to display their skills as paratroopers drop down from planes flying close overhead.

Another event related to Ghode Jatra takes place at Bal Kumari in Patan where a horse is fed alcoholic spirits until it is intoxicated and an equally drunk person in a traditional Newari attire rides it. People shout to frighten and enrage the animal until it runs wildly with the rider clinging on to it for dear life.

Learning House Important Update: West Virginia State University

I wanted to bring you some important updates as it relates to application processing for West Virginia State University, Fall 2019.

Application Processing Timeframe

The agreed processing timeframe for application processing is 10 business days.  This is based on the date the application is fully completed, prescreened and submitted to the university for processing.  We have experienced some short-term teething problems (mainly due to GPA calculation).  However, these have now been fixed and we have received the full assurance that applications will be processed within the agreed timeframe.

MS in Computer Science (MSCS) Admission Criteria

Just a reminder that the base approval criteria for the MSCS is a 295 GRE and 6.0 IELTS.  Candidates who have a GRE below 295 can still be considered if they have a strong GPA.  However, we would not expect them to have below a 290.  Candidates without GRE, with a GPA of 3.25 can also be considered.  Note scholarship decisions are also made at the time of admission, based on GPA.  Scholarships range from $10,000-$14,000 ($5,000-$7,000 per annum).

US Consulate Visit

During my visit to India last week, I met with the US Consulate in Delhi to introduce the new MSCS.  The feedback I was given was that since there is no cap on F-1 visas, they are motivated to issue visas to genuine students who have clear intentions when they graduate.   I shared with them the program outline, and advised them that this program was being launched to help a local skill-shortage in this field.  Approved candidates would also secure Federal scholarships up to $14,000.  They responded well to this and agreed to share the information across all Consulates.  They also indicated the importance of GRE scores, and I confirmed WVSU also required these (and would waive them only as an exception).  I am hoping this visit will have a positive influence on Fall approvals.

Ozford Highlight

ELICOS Graduations

Everyone at Ozford wishes you the best of luck and hopefully we will see you back in Australia soon!
Year 12 Further Maths

At the end of last term, the Year 12 Further Maths class sat their first SAC, an application task for the Data Analysis topic. The theme for this year’s task was to analyse recent horse racing results, using the statistical techniques learnt in class, to see if there was a correlation between a horse’s starting price (odds of winning) and its finishing position. Each student analysed a different set of race results. In most cases there was not really a strong association between the odds and placings. This goes to show that betting on horse racing is not a good idea unless you are prepared to lose money!

This term we are studying Financial Arithmetic. Students learn how things like investments, loans, mortgages, annuities etc. work and will sit their SAC in a few weeks. Hopefully they will be well informed when it comes time for them to make an investment or one day buy a house. Certainly a better option than horse racing!

Quick Student Job Hunting Tips


1.      Read relevant online magazines, newspapers and blogs about the sector you are interested in to keep up with the latest trends and vacancies.


2.      Job search websites like E4S offer job postings from multiple online recruiters and can make finding opportunities very easy. Employment4students is just one such example – set yourself up with a few other quality outfits too.


3.      Get yourself a job hunt buddy. Why go it alone? If two of you are looking for similar jobs in the same area, then pool your resources and cut down on research time.


4.      Get to know your college or university careers staff.


5.      Go old school for half an hour a week and have a look through your local newspaper for opportunities. Smaller local businesses often stick to more traditional methods of recruiting so never right off the power of print.


6.      Likewise, keep an eye on the noticeboards of local shops and supermarkets.


7.      Set up a dedicated email address for job applications and replies. Not only is it easier to track, but it can look more professional if your main email account has a “nickname”.


8.      If it looks too good to be true, then it might actually be too good to be true. Always keep an eye out for student money job scams when researching opportunities.


9.      University job shops, although often overlooked, are always a great first port of call for student job vacancies as recruiters know exactly the audience they’re targeting.


10.  Keep it in the family. When you’re on the job hunt, especially if you’re still living at home, your immediate family will often know of local opportunities. But, why not cast the net wider and tap those extended family connections (doesn’t cousin Peter’s niece’s uncle work at Asda?) In never hurts to ask after all.


11.  Search the e4s extensive database of student jobs and graduate jobs in your area.


12.  Set up an email alert from the results page of those searches so that we can keep you up to date with new opportunities.


13.  Widen your job search preferences. We very rarely get the exact job we’re after the very first time. Be inspirational but also realistic. No one starts out as a managing director.


14.  Set up Google Alerts to get notified when news relating to your job search or desired sector reaches Google News. It can save time you would otherwise spend trawling the major news sites.


15.  Gumtree is a bit like Marmite; you either love it or hate it. Online classifieds can be tedious if the same jobs are being posted and reposed over and over, but you do find some gems on there now and again. Especially in the casual and part time sections of the website.


16.  If there’s a company that you really want to work for but you haven’t seen any positions advertised, it’s always worth dropping them a call or letter with your CV to make them aware of you keenness and qualifications.


18.  Get your CV in front of the as many appropriate recruiters as you possibly can. You can never make too many applications so long as the recruiters are the right ones for you.


19.  5.2 million people have registered their CV with CV Library to ensure they get found. It will only take up a few minutes of your time, so just do it!


20.  ALWAYS ensure your CV is kept up to date with contact details, education history, qualifications, key skills, work experience and interests.


18.  When writing your CV and covering letter, make sure there is consistency in terms of design, layout and professionalism.


19.  Priorities your greatest achievements on your CV.


20.  Don’t waffle on your CV or covering letter.


21.  Make sure your contact details are on the CV (sorry guys, but we do see some that lack that basic feature. Not from you of course, though!)


22.  Say it with numbers. Where applicable, try to quantify any results and achievements in your previous work experience. eg. I increased sales by 200% within 3 months.


23.  Use the occasional bullet list format rather than prose if appropriate. It can break up the rest of the text and help summaries your major achievements and top qualities.


24.  Ensure you are concise when constructing your CV. It is often beneficial to limit yourself to one page (two maximum) so be concise.


25.  Hold off on using fancy graphics on your CV. Keep it simple.


26.  Only include the most appropriate education details on your CV. If you’re applying for a job after college, there is no need to list your primary school.


27.  Check, check, check again – and the double check for spelling and grammatical mistakes.


32.  Update your references regularly and, if you have multiple referees, then use the most appropriate ones for each individual job application.


33.  Work experience, internships or placements are a fantastic way to get the proverbial foot in the door at a company to gain valuable experience and connections. You can find the latest opportunities on the e4s website.


34.  Take a course. Similar to work experience and internships, if you can afford to live whilst studying then an extra course is a great way to enhance your knowledge, CV and chance of securing that dream job.


35.  Volunteer – either in the UK or overseas. Okay, you won’t earn money – but you’ll be doing good for others and making yourself much more employable.


36.  Apprenticeships are becoming ever more popular with job seekers across a wide number of sectors, as the combination of excellent training, skill development and a qualification at the end of it, whilst getting paid, is an attractive proposition. Check out some options at Apprenticeships.org.


37.  Does a family member own their own business or have influence at one owned by someone else? See if they can sort you out with some work experience, if even for just a couple of weeks.


37.  Working from home is a great way to earn some money while you are still looking for a more traditional student job. It also builds up skills to add to your CV.


38.  Are you crafty? Make your own toys and handicrafts to sell.


39.  Find some online freelancing work.


40.  Always keep looking for new opportunities. eg: NEWS JUST IN: Good with computers? Why not help other PC users remotely with technical issues using the new Google Hangout & Remote Desktop marriage?


37.  Earn money filling out online surveys.


38.  Is there an entrepreneurial side to you? If you’ve a product to sell, identified a gap in the market, formulated a sound business plan and have a little finance, then why not setup an eBay shop?


39.  If you have a second language, why not find some online translation work?


40.  You’re a student, you know how tutoring works – so start tutoring other students. Read about how to find online tutoring work.


41.  Fill some spare time testing websites for businesses.


42.  Own a camera? Then here’s how to sell your photos online.


49.  Facebook doesn’t only have to be used for keeping up with friends and family and other students. Get the message out to all of your Facebook friends that you are in the jobs market.


50.  “Like” relevant recruiters’ Facebook Pages and add them to specialized Facebook Interest Lists so that they are easy to keep track of.


Skills You Need To Become A Successful International Student

It takes more than just being smart to succeed at university. Aside from leading a healthy student lifestyle, there is a range of essential study skills and qualities that every student must have to excel at university. Some of these can be learned, practiced and honed but it’s ideal to have some sort of foundation before you arrive on your course.


Your time at university will require you to demonstrate excellent time-management. You’ll be juggling assignments for different modules, that you will have to complete to a high standard, as well as attending all of your lectures. You may also have a part-time job to factor into your schedule too. Being able to prioritise your responsibilities will see you do well at university.


Having strong organisation skills will make your time at university much easier. Whether it’s working out a detailed study system or simply investing in a lot of folders and binders for your notes, being organised can help you reduce stress and anxiety during busy exam and assignment periods.


Note-taking is one of the most useful university study skills to master. You may be given handouts to refer to in lectures but you’ll be expected to take notes as well. You’ll be given a lot of information by your professor and it is up to you to make notes of the most important elements. These notes will help you with revision for exams and when you’re completing assignments.

Independent Learning & Research

Lectures only make up a small portion of your time at university. You may only have a few hours a week scheduled in your timetable but you’ll be expected to make up the rest of the time doing independent learning and research. You’ll need to know where and how to find the relevant information you need; as well as how to structure your study sessions yourself.

Good Work Ethic

The students that do well at university are hard-working and driven, but they also understand the importance of achieving the perfect study-life balance. Having a really good work ethic means you’re less likely to let things distract you from your academic studies. Attending every lecture, being on time and handing in assignments by the deadline are all qualities of a hard-working student that is likely to succeed.


Knowing your strengths and weaknesses can be a really useful skill to have as a student. It allows you to develop new skills and focus on improving the areas in which you are weakest. Whilst also allowing you to build upon your existing strengths. This means you’re more likely to work more efficiently.

English Language Skills

If you’re studying in an English speaking country, whether you’re an international student or not, you will be required to demonstrate an ability to read and write in English. Correct spelling and grammar is important and having a firm grasp of the English language is vital for your success in your lectures, exams and assignments. From advising you on the perfect English course to helping you prepare for your IELTS exam, our expert team can support in many ways. By implementing the above study skills for international students, you’ll be able to thrive on your university course – wherever you decide to go. Contact IEC Abroad to receive more advice for international students studying abroad.

Tuition Protection Service (TPS) In Australia

Student TPS Overview

The Tuition Protection Service (TPS) is an initiative of the Australian Government to assist international students whose education providers are unable to fully deliver their course of study. The TPS ensures that international students are able to either:

  • complete their studies in another course or with another education provider or
  • receive a refund of their unspent tuition fees.


Australia has a well established international education sector with over 1200 education providers delivering a high quality education to international students. For many years now Australia has been a world leader in protecting the tuition fees of international students studying in Australia on a student visa. Recent changes to the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act have further strengthened protections for international students through the introduction of the Tuition Protection Service (TPS).


In the unlikely event your education provider is unable to deliver a course you have paid for and does not meet their obligations to either offer you an alternative course that you accept or pay you a refund of your unspent prepaid tuition fees (this is called a provider’s ‘default obligations’), the TPS will assist you in finding an alternative course or to get a refund if a suitable alternative is not found.

Step 1

  • Your education provider stops providing or does not start providing your course as agreed and does not meet their default obligations.
  • The TPS contacts you and creates an account for you.

Step 2

  • Register with or log-on to the TPS and provide proof of identity

Step 3

  • The TPS online system will assist you to find options for completing your study in Australia.

Step 4

  • Accept preferred suitable offer.
  • You commence study as agreed.
  • TPS transfers any unspent pre-paid tuition fees to your new provider.


  • If there are no suitable alternative courses or offers, you may apply for a refund of the amount of any unspent pre-paid tuition fees you have paid the provider. These are any tuition fees you have already paid that are directly related to the course which you haven’t yet received. Any remaining unspent tuition fees are refunded to you.

अष्ट्रेलियामा श्रम शोषणमा पर्नेहरुका लागि निःशुल्क कानुनी सहायता

शोषणमा पर्ने आप्रवाशी कामदारलाई न्यू साउथ वेल्स सरकारले कानुनी सहायता उपलब्ध गराउने भएको छ । अष्ट्रेलियाका विभिन्न शहरहरुमा काम गर्ने आप्रवाशी, विद्यार्थी तथा ब्यागप्याकर्स (छोटो समय अष्ट्रेलियामा रहँदा काम गर्ने यात्रुहरु) रोजगारदाताबाट श्रम शोषणको मारमा पर्दै आएका छन् ।

अन्यायमा परेका कामदारको सहायताका लागि न्यू साउथ वेल्स सरकारले १६ लाख डलर विनियोजन गरेर उनीहरुको हितमा निःशुल्क कानुनी परामर्श तथा सहायता गर्ने घोषणा गरेको छ ।

सिड्नीमा चारवटा सामुदायिक कानुनी सहायता केन्द्रहरु तोकिएको छ । शोषणमा पर्नेहरुले इनर सिटी लिगल सेन्ट, रेडफर्न लिगल सेन्टर, किंग्सफर्ड लिगल सेन्ट र म्यारिकभील लिगल सेन्टरमा जान सक्नेछन् ।

आप्रवासीहरुको सहजतालाई मध्यनजर गर्दै उनीहरुको भाषा जान्ने ब्यक्तिलाई नियुक्त गरिनेछ । विषेशगरी अंग्रेजी बोल्न नजान्ने तथा त्यहाँको रिति थिती नजानेका ब्यक्तिहरु श्रम शोषणमा पर्दै आएका छन् । यस्तो समस्या विद्यार्थीहरुले पनि भोग्दै आएका छन् ।

यी चारवटा लिगल सेन्टरहरुले कमजोर स्थिती भएका मानिसहरुको कानुनी समस्यामा सहयोग गर्दै आएका छन् । उनीहरुको कामको दायरा थप भएको एनएसडब्ल्यूका महान्यायाधिवक्ता मार्क स्पिकम्यानले जानकारी दिए ।

यसैक्रममा रेडफर्न लिगल सेन्टरले अष्ट्रेलियामा अध्ययनरत अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय विद्यार्थीलाई कानुनी सहायता प्रदान गर्न माई लिगल मेट नामक एप संचालनमा ल्याएको छ । यस एपले बनाएको भिडियोले कस्तो प्रकारको समस्यामा कस्तो प्रकारको कानुनी प्रक्रिया अपनाउने भनेर सिकाउँछ । अधिवक्ता शन स्टिमसनले उक्त एपको परिकल्पना गरेका हुन् ।

There’s so much beauty right here in our greater backyard that we used to neglect. The grass seems greener on the other side, and we’re often filled with wanderlust for faraway places. But if we just stop to look, it’s incredible how many different types of landscapes and cultures fill this country.



We’ve stepped foot in 47 states and covered a lot of ground over the years. Even after living in 7 different cities plus doing a handful of cross country road trips, we feel like we barely made a dent (I also can’t help that our list continues to grow longer and longer). Today, we put together a list of many of our favorite destinations in the US to give you a good start.

Of course, there are many more than 101 places worth visiting in the US. If you need even more suggestions, click the links below to see full guides on each destination.



  1.  Denali National Park

Denali is one of the more accessible national parks in Alaska.

  1.  Mendenhall Glacier

13-mile glacier near Juneau.


  1.  Talladega Superspeedway, Lincoln

Talladega Superspeedway for NASCAR – we’re not big of NASCAR, but it has a huge following in the US and is part of the culture. It’s probably worth checking out once.


These vibrant and beautiful slot canyons are crowded. If you want to find a less crowded option, head to Waterholes Canyon.

Hike down into the canyon to greeted by waterfalls plunging into turquoise waters. Permits are hard to get, so here are our tips.

A short hike (1.3 mi round trip) takes you to a viewpoint where you can see the horseshoe shaped bend in the Colorado River. We also took a boat ride through, which offered a unique perspective.

Easiest way to get here is via helicopter from Vegas. Although, the views are more impressive from the top looking down.

  1.  Sedona

Don’t miss the Devil’s Bridge hike and Slide Rock State Park.

The park is split into Saguaro East and West. West photographed better, while East was less crowded.

They only allow 20 people in per day. These permits shave been the hardest to get. See our top Wave permit tips here.

If you can’t get into the Wave, this is the best alternative. Photographers love White Pocket because it hasn’t been photographed a million times like the Wave


If you’re a socal resident and you love Disneyland, the annual pass is the way to go.

One of my favorite places in the world. Popular stops are McWay Falls and Pfeiffer Beach.

Explore the islands through kayaking or diving for a really unique experience.

This park is massive and has diverse landscapes. Summers are brutally hot, so this park is best in the winter.

Jtree doesn’t have the prettiest hikes, but it’s a climber’s paradise. It also photographs beautifully at sunset and stargazing and astrophotography are amazing.

  1.  Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is a beautiful crystal clear lake. Skiing is great in the winter, and hiking in the summer. The Nevada side is less popular but just as beautiful.



Traffic is almost impossible to avoid. Load up on music and audiobooks while you wait. Check out our LA bucket list, free things to do, instagram spots, and food guide. If you like Korean food, LA has the best we’ve found outside of Korea.

Napa is the most popular wine country in the US. If you love food and can get a reservation at the French Laundry, we absolutely recommend it.

  1.  Redwood National Park

See these California coast giants. They can grow up to 300 ft tall.

Can we all retire and become beach bums? Life is too easy in sunny San Diego. It’s one of our favorite cities we’ve lived in the US. Check out our free things to doinstagram spots, and SD bucket list.

It’s known for the famous Golden Gate bridge, year round fog (named Karl), and colorful mismatched Victorian houses. The culture of SF has changed over the years, but it’s still one of my favorite cities with easy access to the outdoors too.

Walk among the largest trees in the world (by volume).

  1.  Sonoma

Although the popularity is increasing, if you want a less touristy wine country experience than Napa, go to Sonoma.

Our favorite national park. It’s become extremely popular and crowded especially in the Valley. The park is massive, so explore outside the valley to avoid the crowds or visit in late fall to winter. Keep in mind, most waterfalls dry up in the winter.



12 miles of the deepest and most dramatic part of the Black Canyon.

  1.  Denver

Watching a concert at Red Rocks is a unique experience. Or head there for your morning workout. You’ll have plenty of workout buddies.

One of the things that you should always look at when you are looking to study overseas is the cost of living. Even though people will go to places that have higher costs of living (the United States, the United Kingdom) to study, going to somewhere that has a lower cost of living can really help reduce your costs during college. New Zealand is actually one of the most inexpensive places that you can go if you are looking to study in another country.

Consumer goods in New Zealand are of the same style and quality that you will find overseas by other manufacturers. Here are some of the prices that you will see when looking at different products. All of these are in New Zealand dollars (NZ); you can use a conversion calculator like the one found here.

  • Average washing machine: $700-$800
  • Average round of golf: $20 to $50
  • Average movie ticket: $12
  • 4 door sedan: $25000
  • Cup of Coffee: $4
  • Petrol per liter: $2.00
  • Milk (2 liters): $4
  • Fast food sandwich: $4 to $5
  • Average meal at a restaurant: $20 to $25

The goods and services tax (GST) is 15% in New Zealand, which may feel high until you realize that other taxes are a bit lower than you will see in other countries. The cost of living survey in 2012, which ranks cities from the most expensive places to live (#1) to the least expensive named Auckland and Wellington, two major cities in New Zealand, to be two of the cities with the lowest cost of living (56 and 74, respectively). This means that these cities are actually much better to live in than areas like New York City, London, and Beijing, and are actually very good places for you to consider if you think that you want to study abroad but you are not sure where you want to go.

There are, of course, other services that you have to look at when it comes to the cost of living in a particular country. You need to look at other factors as well. Here are some of the numbers that you will see when it comes to how much essentials cost in New Zealand:

  • Utilities: Most people will spend about .25 per Kilohertz of electricity, depending on the company that they get their electricity from. For an average family, that puts it at around $2000 a year, but it will be much less if you are living in a flat on your own or with one or two roommates. Throw in other utilities, and it costs somewhere from $150 to $200 a month for all your utilities.
  • Internet costs approximately $85 a month, and, like many countries, will have a limit on exactly how much you are allowed to use throughout the month.
  • Rent is anywhere from $800 to $2000 per month, depending on where you live in relation to a city, suburb, or university. It will also depend on the size of the place that you are renting out.
  • The cost of your education, which we will explore more in other areas of the site, will range anywhere from $10000 to $18000 per year, depending on what school you attend and what your program of study is. Graduate programs cost a bit more, from $14,000 to $24,000 per year.
  • Health care is incredibly good. You will pay anywhere from $25 to $60 for a doctor’s appointment; hospital costs are usually free (but surgeries have waiting lists unless it’s an emergency), $5 for prescriptions. Health insurance is relatively affordable as well, even for international students.

As you can see, there are a number of factors that play into the cost of living in New Zealand (or honestly, no matter where you end up studying). The cost of living is low enough that you should be able to make it without a lot of problems.

The good thing is that there are plenty of ways for you to get the money you need. Since most student visas allow you to work while you are studying, you will be better prepared to deal with any financial things that come up. For more information on working while studying, check out our section that explains it a bit better. We will look at some of these categories of living essentials in more detail in other sections of the site. The immigration office offers a lot of information about the cost of living on their website, if you are looking for more information to base your decisions on.

Educational System

There are some similarities and a lot of differences between the education systems in Nepal and the U.S. For instance, we have 3-year as well as 4-year bachelor’s programs in Nepal. In the U.S., however, bachelor’s programs are no shorter than four years. Therefore, it is important to understand the education system in the U.S. and to know where you fit in.


High School


In Nepal, our education system uses ‘board exams,’ where students take the same set of exams administered by an educational or university board. In Nepal, we have the SLC board exam which is taken at the end of grade ten. Known as the ‘iron gate’, a lot of importance is given to the SLC. After SLC, students typically join a Plus Two, A-Levels, PCL or Intermediate Level program.


By contrast, high school in the U.S. is grades nine through twelve. Furthermore, each school is autonomous and students do not take board exams in the U.S. In general, a student who has successfully completed Plus Two, A-Levels, PCL, Intermediate Level, or a similar program, can be compared with a high school graduate from the U.S. system.


Undergraduate Studies


We used to have a 2-year bachelor’s program in Nepal. We now have many 3-year bachelor’s programs, 4-year bachelor’s programs, and some programs which are even longer in duration. In contrast, bachelor’s programs in the U.S. are no shorter than four years and are one form of ‘Undergraduate’ programs. Students who have completed twelve years of education are eligible to join undergraduate programs in the U.S. There is a name given to each of the four years of bachelor’s study – namely freshman, sophomore, junior and senior years.


There exists another form of undergraduate education in the U.S., which is the associate’s degree. An associate’s degree is a 2-year degree earned at a community college. Community colleges usually serve a small community around them. Per year college tuition is usually much less expensive than per year tuition at a 4-year college. Students who opt for an associate’s degree may choose upon completion to transfer to a 4-year college/university in the U.S. to continue studies for a bachelor’s degree.


Hence, students seeking bachelor’s degrees in the U.S. have two options. They can either directly join a 4-year bachelor’s program, or study at a community college and then transfer to a 4-year bachelor’s program. Students should carefully evaluate these two options. You may find that studying at a community college is less expensive, but then it is generally difficult to obtain scholarship when you transfer to the 4-year institution. Furthermore, community colleges may not have housing and students might have to live off campus.


Graduate Studies

We have M.Phil and Post Graduate degrees in Nepal that do not exist in the U.S. Both master’s and PhD level studies are referred to as ‘Graduate’ studies in the U.S. A master’s degree is usually earned after two years of study beyond a 4-year bachelor’s program and a PhD degree takes somewhere between four to eight years.

Why Study at New Zealand ?

New Zealand, although it is the same size as Japan or Great Britain, but there are a lot of reasons that you should consider going there for your studies abroad. Many people will call natives of the country “Kiwis,” after the bird that only resides there and nowhere else in the entire world. There are a number of reasons that you should consider studying in New Zealand instead of considering other countries; that’s what we’re going to look at in this section of our website.

1. The people

Kiwis are some of the most amazing, loving, and welcoming people that you will ever meet. If you are a stranger, a native New Zealander is going to treat you like you are a friend. They are used to meeting new people, first because they travel a lot themselves, and also because a lot of people come to visit New Zealand as well. The culture on the islands is quite laid back and easy going, as well. So you’re not going to feel tense like you would if you went to a large city like London or New York City to study. There are just over 4 million people who reside on the country, and it is one of the safest places to live in the world. Another cool thing about the people is that there are so many different kinds of people. For being such a small country, the diversity is greater than you see in many European countries.

2. The stability

Some people say that, because the country is in a small corner of the world that doesn’t really get bothered by anyone, that New Zealand seems to be secluded from the rest of the world. This isn’t true at all. As mentioned above, the people are really welcoming to outsiders. But, it can also be a great thing! The economy is actually incredibly stable, the cost of living is low, and the government is more stable (and less argumentative) than the governments that you will see in other countries. This is probably the reason that immigration is embraced, which we will talk about more in some of our later points.

3. The Weather

Nothing can get better than the weather in New Zealand. The winters are mild, with temperatures around 10ºC (50ºF) and slightly wet. In higher altitudes, you will see snow, but it’s not common in lower altitudes. In the summers, the climate is warm and dry with temperatures around 25ºC (77ºF). As you would expect in the southern hemisphere, the summer lasts from December to February; winter lasts from June to August. Spring and fall are similar, with cooler temperatures and little rain.

4. The educational system

This is the number one reason to go anywhere for school, but New Zealand is amazing for their educational system. First, the tuition is some of the lowest in the world. You get a British-based education (due to their British influences) for a percentage of the cost. The degrees are recognized around the world as being up-to-date and practical. You will get a high quality, hands on education that you deserve. The New Zealand even goes so far as to checking each and every course, program, and certificate for quality so that they can be recognized around the world as high-quality education. Not only that, but the support services for international students are among the best in the world. They have a lot of expertise and experience in helping international students so that they can succeed in their programs.

5. Never run out of things to do

This is an amazing opportunity for anyone who looks for adventure. In New Zealand, there are literally thousands of things to do. Do you like to hike? There are plenty of mountains for you to explore. Do you enjoy being a beach bum? Then you get to enjoy the beaches throughout the year. Want some excitement? There are always new things to do . The scenery is different depending on where you go; you could drive an hour and have a completely different geography. We’ll look at this more in our sports and recreation section.

6. Work opportunities

There are plenty of work opportunities available for international students. On a student visa, you are allowed to work up to 20 hours a week through the semester; during vacations you can work up to 40 hours. So, instead of having to worry about finances, you get to supplement your education with income. You may even be able to nab internships and other practical work. The international studies office at your university can help you find a job to sustain you during your time in New Zealand. Another great thing is that you can get a permit at the end of your degree program and work for 12 months in the country under a special “work permit” that is alongside your student visa, which is what we’ll look at closer in the last point.

7. Ease of visa acquisition and residency

The visa acquisition process is incredibly simple, and unlike many other countries, you will not be rejected right away. You get to talk to people and tell them your side of the story if there is something that may prevent you from getting a visa to come into the country. If you can explain why you’ve decided to go down there and your international studies program helps you to create a Statement of Purpose (a statement you give to the visa officer to tell them why you are coming to New Zealand to study), you will usually get a visa. The country is welcome to immigration, more so than almost any other country in the world. The last advantage is that, after you graduate, as mentioned above, you can work in the country for up to a year. If the job you are working at is related to the degree that you received, you can actually apply to get permanent residency, which you will most likely get within 6 months of your application. We look at visa acquisition and residency more in our Visa and Passport section.

Now do you see why there are over 100,000 people who go and study in New Zealand every single year? Will you join them and become an honorary Kiwi while getting your education in a beautiful and unique country like New Zealand? Then keep looking around our site; we can help you determine how to move forward with the application process and how to choose the right school for you. We want to give you everything that you need in order to help you to make the best decision.

New Zealand at glance

New Zealand is a sovereign island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The country has two main landmasses—the North Island (Te Ika-a-Māui), and the South Island (Te Waipounamu)—and around 600 smaller islands. It has a total land area of 268,000 square kilometres (103,500 sq mi). New Zealand is about 2,000 kilometres (1,200 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long period of isolation, New Zealand developed a distinct biodiversity of animal, fungal, and plant life. The country’s varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks, such as the Southern Alps, owe much to the tectonic uplift of land and volcanic eruptions. New Zealand’s capital city is Wellington, and its most populous city is Auckland.

Sometime between 1250 and 1300, Polynesians settled in the islands and developed a distinctive Māori culture. In 1642, Dutch explorer Abel Tasman became the first European to sight New Zealand. In 1840, representatives of the United Kingdom and Māori chiefs signed the Treaty of Waitangi, which declared British sovereignty over the islands. In 1841, New Zealand became a colony within the British Empire and in 1907 it became a dominion; it gained full statutory independence in 1947 and the British monarch remained the head of state. Today, the majority of New Zealand’s population of 4.9 million is of European descent; the indigenous Māori are the largest minority, followed by Asians and Pacific Islanders. Reflecting this, New Zealand’s culture is mainly derived from Māori and early British settlers, with recent broadening arising from increased immigration. The official languages are EnglishMāori, and New Zealand Sign Language, with English being very dominant.

developed country, New Zealand ranks highly in international comparisons of national performance, such as quality of life, health, education, protection of civil liberties, and economic freedom. New Zealand underwent major economic changes during the 1980s, which transformed it from a protectionist to a liberalised free-trade economy. The service sector dominates the national economy, followed by the industrial sector, and agriculture; international tourism is a significant source of revenue. Nationally, legislative authority is vested in an elected, unicameral Parliament, while executive political power is exercised by the Cabinet, led by the prime minister, currently Jacinda ArdernQueen Elizabeth II is the country’s monarch and is represented by a governor-general, currently Dame Patsy Reddy. In addition, New Zealand is organised into 11 regional councils and 67 territorial authorities for local government purposes. The Realm of New Zealand also includes Tokelau (a dependent territory); the Cook Islands and Niue (self-governing states in free association with New Zealand); and the Ross Dependency, which is New Zealand’s territorial claim in Antarctica. New Zealand is a member of the United NationsCommonwealth of NationsANZUSOrganisation for Economic Co-operation and DevelopmentASEAN Plus SixAsia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Pacific Community and the Pacific Islands Forum.

New Zealand uses the New Zealand Dollar ($NZD) as their currency.

Institutions in New Zealand are permitted to set their own tuition fees. This means that what you pay will be different depending on your institution of choice. International students can expect to pay between $22,000 and $32,000 for a bachelor’s degree, and between $26,000 and $37,000 for a postgraduate course. However, if you choose a course such as medicine, engineering or veterinary science, your fees are likely to be higher. All PhD students pay the same, which is $6,500 to $9,000 per year. For information about the cost of your specific course, contact your institution.

There are scholarships available for international students at all levels, including students wanting to gain a PhD. These scholarships are offered by the institutions themselves, or the government. Contact your institution to get more information about your eligibility, or use the official New Zealand scholarship directory.

Living costs depend on where you choose to live in New Zealand. As in most countries, the bigger cities will require a larger living budget than the smaller cities and towns. It is recommended that you allow between $15,000-$27,000 per year. If you will be studying in New Zealand for more than one year, you will be required to prove that you have at least $15,000 to support yourself for the first year. If you are studying for up to a year, you are required to prove that you have at least $1,250 for each month of study.

If you have a student visa, you are able to work up to 20 hours per week during term time, and full time out of term time. Students completing Masters by Research or PhD are able to work full time throughout their studies, including term time.

In order to study in New Zealand, you might have to purchase health insurance. This will depend on where you are from. If you hold a student visa, you are not eligible for publicly funded health services. The exception to this rule are students from Australia and the United Kingdom or PhD students. These students are entitled to publicly funded health care for immediately necessary treatment only. If you are from any other country, or need to access further medical treatment, you will need to make sure that you have valid medical and travel insurance throughout your stay. Your chosen institution will be able to provide more information regarding this.


If you will be staying in New Zealand for more than 3 months, you may need to apply for a student visa. Students from Australia or other countries that have an agreement with New Zealand do not need to apply for a visa.

Once you have your visa, you can stay in the country for up to four years and have permission to work up to 20 hours per week. You must be enrolled with an approved institution and have the money to pay for your course.

You can either apply for your visa at your home country’s New Zealand embassy or consulate, but the application fee is 10% cheaper online.
For more information about visas, please visit the New Zealand Immigration website.


There are three official languages in New Zealand; English, Maori and New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL). Te Reo Maori became an official language in 1987. NZSL, the main language of the deaf community in New Zealand, became an official language in 2006.

With only 3.7% of the population speaking Maori, the language is in danger of extinction. Authorities are working to make sure this doesn’t happen, implementing Maori classes in schools, as well as television channels broadcasting exclusively in Maori. Studying in New Zealand would be a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in a historic culture, picking up some Maori language and NZSL.

The majority of courses are offered in English. If your native language is not English, you may have to prove that your English skills will meet the teaching standards. If you do not, it is common for institutions to offer language programmes to improve your skills. Contact your institution if you want more information about this.



Auckland is located in New Zealand’s North Island, and is the largest city in the country. The city has the highest Polynesian population in the world, and is widely multicultural. Auckland is recognised as important in the fields of commerce, the arts and education. There are many tourist attractions, including the Harbour Bridge and the Sky Tower. In 2016, Auckland was rated one of the most liveable cities in the world.


Sitting on the banks of the Waikato River, Hamilton is the country’s fourth most populous city. After the English invasion, the old Maori settlement was renamed after Captain John Fane Charles Hamilton, the commander of HMS Esk. The city was initially an agricultural service centre, but now has a diverse economy, with education and research playing an important part in this. The city is home to roughly 40,000 higher education students and 1,000 PhD-qualified scientists.


Eating & Drinking



Global Dining

As well as having the lion’s share of the nation’s best restaurants, Auckland has excellent markets, a plethora of cheap Asian eateries, a hip cafe and bar scene, and wine regions on three of its flanks. And coffee culture is booming (don’t tell anyone from Wellington…).

City of Cones

Auckland is, quite literally, a global hotspot: over 50 separate volcanoes have formed this unique topography – and the next one could pop up at any time. Take a hike up one of the dormant cones dotting the landscape for a high, wide and handsome city panorama.


From the calm, child-friendly bays facing the Hauraki Gulf to the black-sand surf beaches of the west coast, to the breathtaking coastline of the offshore islands, beach lovers are spoiled for choice around Auckland.

Bay of Islands & Northland




Beaches & Bays

Beautiful bays line Northland’s east coast, making it a favourite destination for families, surfers and fishing fans.

Giant Forests

Kauri forests once blanketed NZ’s entire north, and in the pockets where the giants remain, particularly in the Waipoua Forest, they’re an imposing sight.

Historic Sites

New Zealand was settled top down by both Māori and Europeans, with missionaries erecting the country’s oldest surviving buildings in Kerikeri. In nearby Waitangi, the treaty that founded the modern nation was first signed.

Waikato & the Coromandel Peninsula




Beaches & Surf

Find safe swimming and world-class surf at legendary Manu Bay. Beaches on the Coromandel are extremely popular in summer, but glorious isolation can still be yours.

Waitomo Caves

Don’t miss black-water rafting (along underground rivers) at Waitomo Caves, NZ’s most staggering cave site…or just float lazily through amazing grottoes of glowworms.

Taranaki & Whanganui




National Parks

Isolated Whanganui National Park is steeped in Māori lore. Lording over New Plymouth, Mt Taranaki (Egmont National Park) is a picture-perfect peak with fabulous tramping.

Underrated Cities

Midsized cities New Plymouth, Whanganui and Palmerston North are usually overlooked by travellers but you’ll find fantastic restaurants, hip bars, wonderful museums and friendly folk.

Empty Beaches

Hit Surf Hwy 45 south of New Plymouth for black-sand beaches and gnarly breaks. Whanganui offers remote, storm-buffered beaches, while the Horowhenua District has acres of empty brown sand.

Taupo & the Central Plateau



Outdoor Activities

Lake & Rivers

New Zealand’s mightiest river (the Waikato) is born from NZ’s greatest lake (Taupo): aquatic pursuits abound (kayaking, sailing, fishing) and hot springs bubble up nearby.

Dramatic Lands

Three steaming, smoking, occasionally erupting volcanoes – Ruapehu, Tongariro and Ngauruhoe – are an imposing sight, and the focus of skiing in winter and tramping the rest of the year.

Extreme Taupo

Skydiving, bungy jumping, white-water rafting, jetboating, mountain biking, wakeboarding, parasailing, skiing – you want thrills, you got ’em.

Rotorua & the Bay of Plenty

Geothermal Activity

Indigenous Culture


Volcanic Hubbub

The Rotorua landscape is littered with geysers, geothermal vents and hot springs. New Zealand’s only active marine volcano, Whakaari (White Island), is 48km off the coast.

Engage with Māori culture in Rotorua at traditional dance and musical performances, haka (war dances) and hangi (Māori feasts).

Outdoor Sports

Paragliding, surfing, skydiving, zorbing, jetboating, blokarting, white-water rafting, mountain biking, kayaking…or just have a swim at the beach.

The East Coast




Coastal Scenery

Follow in the footsteps of early Māori and James Cook along this stretch of coastline, home to the East Cape Lighthouse and Cape Kidnappers’ gaggling gannet colony.

Wine Regions

Sip your way through Gisborne’s bright chardonnays, then head to Hawke’s Bay for seriously good Bordeaux-style reds and fine winery dining.

Art Deco Napier

Napier’s art-deco town centre is a magnet for architecture lovers, the keenest of whom time their visit for the annual Art Deco Weekend in February.

Wellington Region


Eating & Drinking


Museums & Galleries

Crowbarred into the city centre are quality display spaces including the interactive Te Papa museum and internationally flavoured City Gallery Wellington.

Coffee & Craft Beer

With more than a dozen roasters and scores of hip cafes, Wellington remains the coffee capital of NZ. Start with Havana Coffee Works or Fidel’s.

Bar Hopping

Between the boho bars around Cuba St and Courtenay Pl’s glitzy drinking dens, you should find enough to keep you buzzed until sun up.

Marlborough & Nelson




Marlborough Wine Region

Bobbing in Marlborough’s sea of sauvignon blanc, riesling, pinot noir and bubbly are barrel loads of quality cellar-door experiences and regional food.

National Parks

Not satisfied with just one national park, the Nelson region has three: Nelson Lakes, Kahurangi and Abel Tasman. You could tramp in all three over a week.

Kaikoura Wildlife

The top of the South Island is home to a menagerie of creatures, both in the water and on the wing. Pretty little Kaikoura offers myriad wildlife tours.

The West Coast


Outdoor Activities


Natural Wonders

Around 90% of its territory lies within the conservation estate. Don’t miss Punakaiki’s Pancake Rocks and the Oparara basin.


Expect dramatic views along hour-long tracks and hardcore epics, like the wind-scoured, wildlife-rich Cape Foulwind Walkway.

Pioneering Heritage

The West Coast’s raffish pioneering heritage comes vividly to life in places like Reefton and Shantytown (Greymouth), and in ghost towns like Waiuta.

Christchurch & Canterbury


Outdoor Activities


Christchurch & Akaroa

Earthquakes have damaged Christchurch’s architectural heritage, but the Canterbury Museum, Botanic Gardens and New Brighton St still showcase the city’s history. Nearby, Akaroa proudly celebrates its French heritage.

Tramping & Kayaking

Explore alpine valleys around Arthur’s Pass, kayak on Akaroa Harbour, or visit Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park for tramping and kayaking amid glacial lakes.

Banks Peninsula & the Southern Alps

Descend from Banks Peninsula’s Summit Rd to explore hidden bays and coves, and experience nature’s grand scale: the river valleys, soaring peaks and glaciers of the Southern Alps.

Dunedin & Otago




Birds, Seals & Sea Lions

Seals, sea lions and penguins patrol the Otago Peninsula, while rocky Taiaroa Head is the planet’s only mainland breeding location for the magnificent royal albatross.

Bannockburn & Waitaki Valley

Barrel into the craggy valleys of Bannockburn for excellent vineyard restaurants or delve into the up-and-coming Waitaki Valley wine scene for riesling and pinot gris.


Explore the arty and storied streets of Dunedin, or escape by foot or penny-farthing bicycle into the heritage ambience of Oamaru’s Victorian Precinct.

Queenstown & Wanaka

Outdoor Activities



Extreme Queenstown

Few places on earth offer so many adventurous activities: bungy jumping, river rafting, skiing and mountain biking only scratch Queenstown’s adrenaline-fuelled surface.

Mountains & Lakes

Queenstown’s photogenic combination of Lake Wakatipu and the soaring Remarkables is a real jaw-dropper. Or venture into prime NZ wilderness around Glenorchy and Mt Aspiring National Park.

Southern Wineries

Start with lunch at Amisfield Winery’s excellent restaurant, then explore the Gibbston subregion and finish with a riesling tasting at Rippon, overlooking gorgeous Lake Wanaka.

Fiordland & Southland


Outdoor Activities

Cruises & Coast

Epic Landscapes

The star of the deep-south show is remarkable Milford Sound, but take time to explore the rugged Catlins coast or remote, end-of-the-world Stewart Island.


Test yourself by tramping the Milford or Hump Ridge Tracks, or amble easy hour-long trails along the Milford Hwy.

Watery Thrills

Cruise or kayak around glorious Doubtful Sound, test the surf in Curio Bay or get sprayed by waterfalls in the Catlins.

Education System

Education in New Zealand

Our education system reflects our unique and diverse society, which welcomes different abilities, religious beliefs, ethnic groups, income levels and ideas about teaching and learning.

About education system

Education in New Zealand is a student-centred pathway providing continuous learning progression and choice so that:

  • students progress every year, and
  • their learning at one level sets the foundation for the next steps along a chosen pathway.

New Zealand’s education system has 3 levels:

Our education system reflects our unique and diverse society. We welcome different abilities, religious beliefs, ethnic groups, income levels and ideas about teaching and learning. We have processes in place to give our students consistent, high-quality education at all levels.

Find a school — Education Counts website 

Find an early learning service — Education Counts website 

Directories of education providers — Education Counts website 

Primary and secondary education

Primary and secondary schools are the second level of education.

Your child’s education is free between the ages of 5 and 19 at state schools (schools that are government owned and funded) if they’re a New Zealand citizen or a permanent resident.

Schooling is compulsory from age 6-16. In the majority of schools, your child can start school on the day they turn 5 years old (they don’t have to wait until the start of a new school year). However some schools have a policy of starting children at school together as a group at the start of each term (cohort entry). Most children stay at school until they’re around 17 years old.

The education system for schools is made up of 13 Year levels. Your child’s primary education starts at Year 1 and goes to Year 8 (around 5-12 years of age). Your child’s secondary education goes from Year 9 to Year 13 (around 13-17 years of age).

Local schools

Many children go to a school close to where they live. Many schools have an enrolment scheme called zoning.

If you live in an area close to a school (the school’s zone), your child is guaranteed to get a place at that school. If you want your child to go to a school outside the area where you live, you may have to apply, and a place isn’t guaranteed.

Depending on the schools in your area, you may have the choice to send your child to a single-sex or co-educational school.

State, state integrated and private schools

Most schools in New Zealand are owned and funded by the state (state schools). They teach the national curriculum and are secular (non-religious).

State integrated schools are schools with a special character. They are funded by the government and teach the national curriculum. They’ll have their own sets of aims and objectives to reflect their own particular values, and are set within a specific philosophy or religion. You’ll pay compulsory attendance dues.

Private schools get some government funding but are mostly funded through charging parents school fees. They develop their own learning programmes and don’t have to follow the national curriculum.

Māori-medium education (Kura Kaupapa Māori)

Māori medium education is where students are taught all or some curriculum subjects in the Māori language for at least 51% of the time (Māori Language Immersion Levels 1-2).

Māori language in English medium is where students are learning te reo Māori as a language subject, or are taught curriculum subjects in the Māori language for up to 50% of the time (Māori Language Immersion levels 3-5).

National curriculum

The national curriculum covers subjects that are taught at primary and secondary schools and the standards students should reach in each subject.

Your child’s primary education will focus on foundation learning across a range of subjects and competencies but especially in literacy and numeracy. At secondary school they’ll learn a broad and balanced curriculum, with some specialisation possible in Years 11-13.

Schools that teach in the English language use the New Zealand Curriculum. Schools that teach in the Māori language use Te Marautanga o Aotearoa (a curriculum based on Māori philosophies).

New Zealand Curriculum for English-medium schooling — TKI website 

Te Marautanga o Aotearoa for Māori-medium schooling — TKI website 

National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA)

The National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) is the national senior secondary school qualification.

Your child will usually be assessed during their last 3 years at school (Years 11-13). They can achieve NCEA at 3 levels in a wide range of courses and subjects.

Understanding NCEA — New Zealand Qualifications Authority website 

Learning support

The vast majority of children and students attend their local school or early learning centre, and learn and achieve alongside their peers. Additional learning support is available in every local early childhood centre or school.  It’s planned to support students, educators, families and whānau in a range of different ways depending on individual needs.

Learning support

Home and distance learning

If attending a school isn’t the best option — you might live a long way from the nearest school, travel overseas or have other reasons — your child can learn with New Zealand’s correspondence school, Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu (Te Kura).

Te Kura teaches early childhood, primary, secondary and special needs students using multimedia and online learning. Your child can also study one or two courses if a subject they want to study isn’t available at their school.

Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu (Te Kura) website 

Further education

Technical and vocational education

At senior secondary school level students may begin to specialise in vocational learning. They can get help into work or further education from a number of programmes and institutions.

Youth Guarantee

Youth Guarantee courses provide students aged 16–19 with an opportunity to study towards NCEA Level 1-3 or Level 1-3 certificates at tertiary providers free of charge. These courses are usually vocationally focused.

Trades academies

Trades academies teach trades and technology programmes to students in Years 11-13 (ages 15-18). They are run through schools and other providers.

Institutes of technology

Institutes of technology and polytechnics teach professional and vocational education and training from introductory studies to degrees.

Industry training organisations represent particular industries (for example, agriculture, building and construction, motor trade). They offer training and qualifications for those sectors. They funded by the government and industry.

Private training

Private training establishments offer specific vocational courses at certificate and diploma level (for example, travel and tourism).


New Zealand has 3 wānanga (state-owned Māori teaching and research institutions). They teach according to āhuatanga Māori (Māori tradition) and tikanga Māori (Māori custom). They offer certificates, diplomas and degrees. Some teach in specialised areas up to doctorate level.


New Zealand has 8 state funded universities. Each university offers degrees in a large choice of subjects and has strengths in specialised professional degrees.

All of the universities are well recognised internationally. They work with universities in other countries on research and teaching programmes, and with the business community in New Zealand and overseas on research and development.


One of the things that you should always look at when you are looking to study overseas is the cost of living. Even though people will go to places that have higher costs of living (the United States, the United Kingdom) to study, going to somewhere that has a lower cost of living can really help reduce your costs during college. New Zealand is actually one of the most inexpensive places that you can go if you are looking to study in another country.

Consumer goods in New Zealand are of the same style and quality that you will find overseas by other manufacturers. Here are some of the prices that you will see when looking at different products. All of these are in New Zealand dollars (NZ); you can use a conversion calculator like the one found here.

  • Average washing machine: $700-$800
  • Average round of golf: $20 to $50
  • Average movie ticket: $12
  • 4 door sedan: $25000
  • Cup of Coffee: $4
  • Petrol per liter: $2.00
  • Milk (2 liters): $4
  • Fast food sandwich: $4 to $5
  • Average meal at a restaurant: $20 to $25

The goods and services tax (GST) is 15% in New Zealand, which may feel high until you realize that other taxes are a bit lower than you will see in other countries. The cost of living survey in 2012, which ranks cities from the most expensive places to live (#1) to the least expensive named Auckland and Wellington, two major cities in New Zealand, to be two of the cities with the lowest cost of living (56 and 74, respectively). This means that these cities are actually much better to live in than areas like New York City, London, and Beijing, and are actually very good places for you to consider if you think that you want to study abroad but you are not sure where you want to go.

There are, of course, other services that you have to look at when it comes to the cost of living in a particular country. You need to look at other factors as well. Here are some of the numbers that you will see when it comes to how much essentials cost in New Zealand:

  • Utilities: Most people will spend about .25 per Kilohertz of electricity, depending on the company that they get their electricity from. For an average family, that puts it at around $2000 a year, but it will be much less if you are living in a flat on your own or with one or two roommates. Throw in other utilities, and it costs somewhere from $150 to $200 a month for all your utilities.
  • Internet costs approximately $85 a month, and, like many countries, will have a limit on exactly how much you are allowed to use throughout the month.
  • Rent is anywhere from $800 to $2000 per month, depending on where you live in relation to a city, suburb, or university. It will also depend on the size of the place that you are renting out.
  • The cost of your education, which we will explore more in other areas of the site, will range anywhere from $10000 to $18000 per year, depending on what school you attend and what your program of study is. Graduate programs cost a bit more, from $14,000 to $24,000 per year.
  • Health care is incredibly good. You will pay anywhere from $25 to $60 for a doctor’s appointment; hospital costs are usually free (but surgeries have waiting lists unless it’s an emergency), $5 for prescriptions. Health insurance is relatively affordable as well, even for international students.

As you can see, there are a number of factors that play into the cost of living in New Zealand (or honestly, no matter where you end up studying). The cost of living is low enough that you should be able to make it without a lot of problems.

The good thing is that there are plenty of ways for you to get the money you need. Since most student visas allow you to work while you are studying, you will be better prepared to deal with any financial things that come up. For more information on working while studying, check out our section that explains it a bit better. We will look at some of these categories of living essentials in more detail in other sections of the site. The immigration office offers a lot of information about the cost of living on their website, if you are looking for more information to base your decisions on.

About this course

Test of English as a Foreign Language(TOEFL) is a standardized test to measure the English language ability of non-native speakers wishing to enroll in English-speaking universities. The test is accepted by many English-speaking academic and professional institutions. TOEFL is one of the two major English-language tests in the world, the other being the IELTS.

TOEFL is a trademark of the Educational Testing Service  (ETS), a private non-profit organization, which designs and administers the tests. ETS issues official score reports, sent independently to institutions, for two years following the test.

Formats and content

Internet-based test

Since its introduction in late 2005, the TOEFL Internet-based Test (iBT) format has progressively replaced the computer-based tests (CBT) and paper-based tests (PBT), although paper-based testing is still used in select areas. The TOEFL iBT test has been introduced in phases, with the United StatesCanadaFranceGermany, and Italy in 2005 and the rest of the world in 2006, with test centers added regularly. The CBT was discontinued in September 2006 and these scores are no longer valid

Initially, the demand for test seats was higher than availability, and candidates had to wait for months. It is now possible to take the test within one to four weeks in most countries. The four-hour test consists of four sections, each measuring one of the basic language skills (while some tasks require integrating multiple skills), and all tasks focus on the language used in an academic, higher-education environment. Note-taking is allowed during the TOEFL iBT test. The test cannot be taken more than once every 12 days.

  1. Reading

The Reading section consists of questions on 3-5 passages, each approximately 700 words in length. The passages are on academic topics; they are the kind of material that might be found in an undergraduate university textbook. Passages require an understanding of rhetorical functions such as cause-effect, compare-contrast, and argumentation. Students answer questions about main ideas, details, inferences, essential information, sentence insertion, vocabulary, rhetorical purpose, and overall ideas. New types of questions in the TOEFL iBT test require filling out tables or completing summaries. Prior knowledge of the subject under discussion is not necessary to come to the correct answer.

  1. Listening

The Listening section consists of questions on six passages, every 35 minutes in length. These passages include two student conversations and four academic lectures or discussions. The conversations involve a student and either a professor or a campus service provider. The lectures are a self-contained portion of an academic lecture, which may involve student participation and does not assume specialized background knowledge in the subject area. Each conversation and lecture passage is heard only once. Test-takers may take notes while they listen and they may refer to their notes when they answer the questions. Each conversation is associated with five questions and each lecture with six. The questions are meant to measure the ability to understand main ideas, important details, implications, relationships between ideas, organization of information, speaker purpose, and speaker attitude.

  1. Speaking

The Speaking section consists of six tasks: two independent and four integrated. In the two independent tasks, test-takers answer opinion questions on familiar topics. They are evaluated on their ability to speak spontaneously and convey their ideas clearly and coherently. In two of the integrated tasks, test-takers read a short passage, listen to an academic course lecture or a conversation about campus life and answer a question by combining appropriate information from the text and the talk. In the two remaining integrated tasks, test-takers listen to an academic course lecture or a conversation about campus life and then respond to a question about what they heard. In the integrated tasks, test-takers are evaluated on their ability to appropriately synthesize and effectively convey information from the reading and listening material. Test-takers may take notes as they read and listen and may use their notes to help prepare their responses. Test-takers are given a short preparation time before they have to begin speaking. The responses are digitally recorded, sent to ETS’s Online Scoring Network (OSN), and evaluated by three to six raters.

  1. Writing

The Writing section measures a test taker’s ability to write in an academic setting and consists of two tasks: one integrated and one independent. In the integrated task, test-takers read a passage on an academic topic and then listen to a speaker discuss it. The test-taker then writes a summary of the important points in the listening passage and explains how these relate to the key points of the reading passage. In the independent task, the test-taker must write an essay that states their opinion or choice, and then explain it, rather than simply listing personal preferences or choices. Responses are sent to the ETS OSN and evaluated by at least 3 different raters.

Task Description Approximate time
Reading 35 passages, each containing 1214 questions 6080 minutes
Listening 69 passages, each containing 56 questions 6090 minutes
Break Mandatory break 10 minutes
Speaking 6 tasks 20 minutes
Writing 2 tasks 50 minutes

One of the sections of the test will include extra, uncounted material. Educational Testing Service includes extra material to pilot test questions for future test forms. When test-takers are given a longer section, they should give equal effort to all of the questions because they do not know which question will count and which will be considered extra. For example, if there are four reading passages instead of three, then one of the passages will not be counted. Any of the four could be the uncounted one.

Paper-based Test

The TOEFL Paper-Based Test (PBT) is available in limited areas. Scores are valid for two years after the test date, and test-takers can have their scores sent to institutions or face time.

  1. Listening (30 – 40 minutes)

The Listening section consists of 3 parts. The first one contains 30 questions about short conversations. The second part has 8 questions about longer conversations. The last part asks 12 questions about lectures or talks.

  1. Structure and Written Expression (25 minutes)

The Structure and Written Expression section have 15 exercises of completing sentences correctly and 25 exercises of identifying errors.

  1. Reading Comprehension (55 minutes)

The Reading Comprehension section has 50 questions about reading passages.

  1. Writing (30 minutes)

The TOEFL PBT administrations include a writing test called the Test of Written English (TWE). This is one essay question with 250 – 300 words on average.

Test score


  • The TOEFL iBT test is scored on a scale of 0 to 120 points.
  • Each of the four sections (Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing) receives a scaled score from 0 to 30. The scaled scores from the four sections are added together to determine the total score.
  • The reading and listening sections are tested first, followed by a ten-minute break. The speaking and writing sections are then completed following the break. A maximum amount of 250 minutes is allowed to complete the whole exam process.
  • Each speaking question is initially given a score of 0 to 4, and each writing question is initially given a score of 0 to 5. These scores are converted to scaled scores of 0 to 30.

Paper-based Test

  • The final PBT score ranges between 310 and 677 and is based on three subscores: Listening (3168), Structure (3168), and Reading (3167). Unlike the CBT, the score of the Writing component (referred to as the Test of Written English, TWE) is not part of the final score; instead, it is reported separately on a scale of 06.
  • The score test takers receive on the Listening, Structure, and Reading parts of the TOEFL test is not the percentage of correct answers. The score is converted to take into account the fact that some tests are more difficult than others. The converted scores correct these differences. Therefore, the converted score is a more accurate reflection of the ability than the raw score is.

Accepted TOEFL Scores

Most colleges use TOEFL scores as only one factor in their admission process, with a college or program within a college often setting a minimum TOEFL score required. The minimum TOEFL iBT scores range from 61 (Bowling Green State University) to 111 (University of Oxford)

ETS has released tables to convert between iBT, CBT and PBT scores.[17]


TOEFL ITP (“ITP” stands for “Institutional Testing Program”) tests are paper-based and use academic content to evaluate the English-language proficiency of non-native English speakers. The tests use new and previously administered TOEFL test questions and are used for placement, progress, evaluation, exit testing and other situations. The test scores, format, and content of the test match the “TOEFL PBT” with the exception of not including the TWE (Test of Written Expression).

Unlike the TOEFL iBT and PBT tests, TOEFL ITP tests are administered by the institution and for internal use. It should not replace the need for the TOEFL iBT test, which is administered securely and includes Speaking and Writing components. There are two levels of TOEFL ITP: Level 1 (intermediate to advanced) and Level 2 (high beginning to intermediate). TOEFL ITP scores are mapped to the CEFR and test takers are provided with a certificate of achievement.

TOEFL Junior Tests

ETS also offers the TOEFL Junior tests, a general assessment of middle school-level English-language proficiency. It is intended for students aged 11+. The tests are administered in two formats: TOEFL Junior Standard (on paper) and TOEFL Junior Comprehensive (via computer). The TOEFL Junior Standard test has three sections: Reading Comprehension, Listening Comprehension, and Language Form and Meaning. The TOEFL Junior Comprehensive test has four: Reading Comprehension, Listening Comprehension, Speaking, and Writing. TOEFL Junior scores are mapped to the CEFR and test takers are provided with a certificate of achievement.


The International English Language Testing System or IELTS is an international standardized test of English language proficiency for non-native English language speakers. It is jointly managed by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia, and Cambridge English Language Assessment and was established in 1989.

An IELTS result or Test Report Form is issued to all test takers with a score from “band 1” (“non-user”) to “band 9” (“expert user”) and each institution set a different threshold. There is also a “band 0” score for those who did not attempt the test. Institutions are advised not to consider a report older than two years to be valid unless the user proves that they have worked to maintain their level.

In 2016, 3 million tests were taken in more than 140 countries, up from 2 million tests in 2012, 1.7 million tests in 2011, and 1.4 million tests in 2009.

Happy Indra Jatra 2019 ,Yenya-the biggest street celebration of Ye (Kathmandu )

The eight-day long Indra Jatra festival falls in September and is one of the most exciting and revered festivals of the Newar community of the Kathmandu Valley.  This also marks the beginning of a month-long festival season of autumn. It begins with the erection of a wooden pole made of pine at Basantapur Sqaure in front of the old Hanuman Dhoka Palace.

For the pole-raising ceremony, hundreds of spectators gather at the Palace Square and on the surrounding temples. The chariot of Kumari, the Living Goddess, is taken out in a procession through the main streets of Kathmandu.

Masked dancers known as Lakhay take to the streets almost every evening accompanied by loud drums. The festival commemorates the time when Indra came down from heaven in human form to look for an herb.

Each night of Indra Jatra the shrines and ancient palace buildings around Kathmandu Durbar Square are aglow with oil wicks. Each night on the platform in front of the temple of the Living Goddess, there is an enactment depicting the ten earthly incarnations of Lord Vishnu. The large image of Akash Bhairab’s head is put on display out in the open directly facing his temple at Indra Chowk.

In the afternoon of the day before full moon, ecstatic mobs gather near Hanuman Dhoka Palace for the long-awaited Living Goddess’ chariot procession to catch a glimpse of the revered little Newar girl who has been deified as Kumari representing Goddess Taleju.

The chariot of the Kumari followed by two other smaller chariots carrying a representative of Ganesh and Bhairav is taken to different parts of the old Kathmandu through the narrow alleys where people gather to watch and py homage. The festival of Indra Jatra ends with the lowering of the (lingam) pole bearing Indra’s flag amidst religious ceremonies.
