Must I study full time on a New Zealand student visa?

Generally you will need to enrol on a full time study course unless you meet all the following exceptions:
* You meet the visitor visa requirements
* Your course is less than 9 months in duration
* You have paid you school fees in full
* Your education provider is approved to accept international students by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.
* It is also possible to study part time if you are in the last semester of a course that will provide you with qualifications that mean you may meet the criteria for a skilled migrant visa.
