Student Calling on the Phone

Work while Studying in New Zealand

Getting a part-time job while you study can help you pay your living expenses, meet new people and learn about the New Zealand workplace. It’s also a great way to practice your English.

New Zealand student visas usually allow full-time students to work up to 20 hours a week during the academic year and up to 40 hours a week during the summer break. This applies to both secondary school and tertiary students. Research master's and PhD students can work 40 hours a week all year round.
