Flexible education system

- You may choose to study at an ITP (Institute of Technology and Polytechnic) in New Zealand such as Otago Polytechnic and Southern Institute of Technology. It is more affordable, and courses provided are more practical focused as students get more involved with the industry of their chosen course.
Either way, both paths are recognised by New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) which gives graduates equal competitive advantage for the same job opportunity upon graduation. The country also provides well-established support services that cater to the different needs of overseas students.
