How long will a New Zealand study visa be granted for?

The maximum period of time you can stay in New Zealand and study is 4 years. The period of time that a student visa will be granted for depends upon various factors.
* Your student visa is normally the same length as the tuition you have paid for if you are a full fee paying student.
* If your course is with an education provider that Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has a Memorandum of Understanding with, applications are considered for the length of course student visa.
* If in receipt of a full scholarship, your student visa is normally valid for the period of your scholarship, up to a maximum of four years.
