Higher Education.

Eight universities may be counted in New Zealand. University education has quite solid traditions for such a young country: the first University of Otago was opened in 1869. And naturally the British model was accepted as its basis.

The universities of New Zealand offer their students a wide set of specialties, each of them being famous for teaching a certain group of disciplines. The University of Otago, for instance, is proud of its Faculty of Medicine, the University of Canterbury – of its Faculties of Engineering and Forestry.

Lincoln University may be recommended to those who are interested in trade and future architects and businessmen will undoubtedly choose the relevant faculties of the University of Auckland.

You study three years to get a degree of Bachelor in New Zealand, another year and you already are a Bachelor with Honors. This Diploma, first, shortens the way to the degree of Master, and second, it is especially preferred by the Employers.

Some specialties are studied longer for: for instance, you study for a Bachelor in Engineering – four years, for a medical doctor – six years. The structure of training in the university and obtaining a joint degree allows for combining the main subject of studies (for instance – chemistry) with a secondary one (for instance, mathematics).

After that you may continue the training with a post-graduate course, Master’s Degree and a Doctoral Degree. Obtaining a Joint Degree will take five years, and another 1 or 2 years of training will be needed for the Master’s Degree. The training for PhD which results in obtaining a Doctoral Degree (PhD), usually lasts 3 years.

Universities of New Zealand do not enroll students with a Russian Diploma for Completed Secondary Education. As a rule, applicants for studies in the University should complete one or two courses in a Russian Higher Educational Institution or at least be trained in New Zealand – in a preparatory division (Foundation), in a vocational – technical educational institution or in a secondary school.

The best manner to enroll is the completion of a Foundation Department of the specific higher educational institution. There are such departments in five universities - University of Auckland, Auckland University of Technology, Massey University, University of Otago, University of Waikato.

New Zealand is an ecologically clean country with very friendly people where the security of life is a very important component.

Education in New Zealand is based on educational programs of the world known British system and it is qualified as being of very high quality in the English-speaking circles. Prestigious education is on offer here without any problems, the great expenditures and the inconveniences for life in the Northern Hemisphere.

Secondary education.

There are about 440 secondary schools and colleges in New Zealand. The bigger part of them is state-owned but there are private ones as well. School life in New Zealand starts from the age of 5. After becoming 5 years old the child is enrolled at a school and starts to study without waiting for the beginning of the next school year. The training in the primary school is from the age of 5 to the age of 11 (1-6 grades), after having completed this degree the children pass to the Intermediate School. This is a connecting unit between the primary and the secondary school, which does not have an analogue in the Russian educational system. Here children are trained aged 11 to 13 which corresponds to the 7th and 8th grades. From the age of 13 pupils pass to training in college or at a secondary school (the 9th to the 13th grades).

And so, you have to study 13 years to obtain complete secondary education in New Zealand. Mandatory school uniform is introduced in schools. Prior to receiving their certificates, pupils pass through several examination stages. As a result of the first of them they receive a certificate for incomplete secondary education which is issued after the completion of the 11th grade. (This document, for instance, is equal to the document Russian pupils get after having completed the 9th grade).

Work may be done with such a certificate, one may get enrolled in a college or in one of the 25 polytechnical schools (an analogue of the technical schools). But to get enrolled in a university you must have spent another 2 years behind school doors. Young people choose a certain quantity of subjects of studies in the 12th grade – usually from 4 to 6, – needed for further studies in the higher educational institutions. The main matriculation examinations are to be passed after the 13th grade, the pupils get certificates for having completed secondary education. A defined quantity of credits with regard to certain subjects of studies after the completion of the school provides possibility for being enrolled in a university without entrance exams.

In New Zealand there are both private and state-owned schools. Usually, private schools have religious direction (catholic, Christian). The fee for training in a private school is a little higher but the state equally financially maintains all the schools which should also satisfy the requirements of the Ministry of Education in the country. In New Zealand there are mixed and differentiated colleges for boys and colleges for girls. The investigations indicate that the results and the behavior in such schools are better than in the mixed ones.

Every year hundreds of pupils and students arrive in New Zealand from various countries for training, to study English and for combining tourism with studying the language. The Ministry of Education of the country ratified a Code of Care for Foreigners – pupils and students.

There are divisions for foreign students following a certain code with each school. Highly qualified lecturers work there, called upon to help the pupils foreigners with all the problems arisen both in connection with the training and with regard to everyday life related problems. Usually pupils-foreigners are offered an intensive course in English at an initial stage of training prior to providing them with possibility to study in the general flow. After having completed their studies in a school of New Zealand, pupils foreigners are enrolled in the University in conformity with their results obtained from their school examination and they do not need to pass IELTS. Pupils foreigners live with families in New Zealand which provides them with possibility to learn English faster and to get accustomed to the particularities of the life in New Zealand. The secondary schools and colleges issue certificate from the 1st to the 3rd levels.

Vocational technical education.

The vocational technical educational institutions “polytechs” are very popular in New Zealand where students from New Zealand and foreign students may obtain vocational qualification or Bachelor’s degree.

The polytechnical institutes as a whole are orientated at the applied specialties – hotel management, tourism, information technologies. Further to the long-term programs, there are also short-term courses for training for work in various spheres in a lot of polytechnical institutes.

Usually the training in polytechnical institutes lasts from 6 months to two years. The programs are made in such a manner that the students who have completed one year in the “polytech” could directly pass into the second year of studies in the university which has partnership relations with the institute.

Conditions for enrollment in a polytech are: general certificate of education, 550 points in TOEFL or a result 5.5- 6,0 in IELTS. Some “polytechs” offer training courses for prospective students. Certificates for 4 levels and a diploma for 5-6 levels are obtained in the polytechnical institutes.

Language centers

There are both language centers organized with the schools and the universities and private language schools in New Zealand. All the programs may be divided into several categories:

A course in general English (standard or intensive) anticipates from 20 to 30 academic hours per week a part of which are for independent classes. Within the framework of this basic course the trainees train and master all the language habits: they learn to speak a little English and perceive speech by hearing it, they learn how to read and write.

Children’s vacation programs, in which training is combined with a rich sports program, excursions, and entertainment events.

English + sports. Various kinds of sports which you may go in for all the year round in New Zealand strike your imagination: mountain skiing, underwater swimming, mountaineering, sailing, golf, horse-riding.

Specialized courses: English for academic purposes, business English and so on.

Examination courses for training for international exams (IELTS or TOEFL)

A week of training in New Zealand costs from 300 to 380 NZD, so that even if we calculate the value of the flights, because of the low value of the training and the way of living, the courses with duration of 1 to 3 months will be cheaper for you than the analogous language programs in Great Britain and the USA.
