Study Experience is the first French agency when it comes to higher studies in New Zealand. Every year, we assist students in their project to study in New Zealand. From short courses to Bachelor’s and Master’s degree, or even PhDs, our advisors can help you choose and prepare your student experience in New Zealand.
Our agency is accredited by ENZ (Education New Zealand), which means our advisors were trained and certified by the Ministry of Education in New Zealand. In addition to this, we are the official representative in France for six New Zealand universities: University of Auckland, Otago University, University of Canterbury, Auckland University of Technology, Lincoln University and Victoria University of Wellington. Learn more about these universities here.
Here is a summary of the different types of training you could pursue in New Zealand, and for which we can assist you:
Gap year: one year in full immersion on the University of Canterbury campus. This program combines English classes and academic modules at university. Live like a local student!
Bachelor’s degree: after your baccalaureate, you can join a university for a bachelor’s degree. Undergraduate degrees in New Zealand are usually completed in three years, and are recognized throughout the world. A variety of subjects are available, such as engineering, commerce, arts, humanities, science or sports.
Professional and vocational training: the equivalent to a French BTS or DUT. These programs take two years to complete and give students the required skills to dive straight into the professional world.
After a Bac+2: students who have already earned a BTS or a DUT in France can transfer to year three of a bachelor’s degree at some of our partner universities. This is a unique opportunity to discover an English-speaking education system, and to earn a prestigious diploma.
Master’s degree: these two year programs combine academic teaching with independent research. French students completing a master’s degree in New Zealand have the opportunity to remain in New Zealand to work for two years.
PhD: few people know that French students wishing to pursue a PhD in New Zealand benefit from reduced tuition fees. This is the result of an agreement signed between New Zealand and France. French students pay up to four times less than other international students.
