Universities in New Zealand

There are eight universities in New Zealand, all of which feature in the QS World University Rankings, a particularly impressive feat when you consider the country’s population is only around 4.7 million. In addition, New Zealand’s higher education system also includes 18 institutes of technology and polytechnics, which offer vocational courses of varying lengths and levels, focusing on practical skills and hands-on experience.

The New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) is at the heart of New Zealand’s higher education system, ensuring that quality standards are maintained. Many students will be pleased to know that class sizes in New Zealand are small, which means you can expect good levels of tutor/student interaction. The country’s higher education system was ranked 16th in the world in the QS Higher Education System Strength Rankings 2016.
Apart from the major universities listed, we also have contacts with all of the institutions in New Zealand and Australia.
