Going to New Zealand for higher studies? As much as the idea seems exciting, the whole process, right from landing at the airport and making sure you reach the right place, can be a gruelling experience. Planning things ahead of time can prove to be very useful.

Listed here are a few important things that you must keep in mind before you leave.

Document Checklist

  • Check for the validity of your passport and arrange for all the crucial documents like your references, marriage certificate (if applicable), birth certificate etc.
  • You can apply for an international driving license, which will be valid only for a year.
  • All documents pertaining to your bank accounts and medical insurance must be verified and authenticated.
  • Check for the authenticity of your visa; if you are a student, transport and health insurance will be covered in your first year’s fees.

University affirmation

  • Make sure you confirm your acceptance of the offer to study in the university. You can do it online.
  • If you have chosen to live on campus or utilise the accommodation facilities of the university, let them know about it. This also can be done online.
  • Contact your university for more personal queries beforehand.

Other Important Details to Keep in Mind

  • Remember to get all your prescribed vaccines before your departure and if you plan on taking a pet with you, it must get its vaccines as well.
  • Make sure you are acquainted with the current exchange rates.
  • Take some time out and research about New Zealand or any other country that you are moving to.
  • If you plan on renting a house, make sure you inform the landlord a minimum of 3 months in advance.
  • You can purchase a SIM card once you are there and can easily use it if you have an unlocked phone.

Make sure you have thoroughly researched the specific requirements of the university. Be sure to read the immigration rules and conditions. Talk to other students who have studied or are studying in New Zealand. Their experiences will help you cope with the teething problems better once you set foot on New Zealand.
