After completing one of the above degrees at Massey University, students can apply for the Post Study Work Visa which allows them to work for any employer. The duration of the visa is between 1 and 3 years, depending on the NZQA level of the course.

What about my partner?

Partners of student visa holders who are in New Zealand studying a Level 9 or 10 qualification can apply for the “Partner of a Student” work visa. This will allow your partner to work in New Zealand while you are studying.
