Work Rights For Student Visa Holders

Friday, November 8th, 2013

In October the NZ Government announced that all English Language Students who apply for a Student Visa for courses of 14+ weeks in duration, at a Category 1 provider, will be eligible to work for 20 hours per week for the duration of their studies (no IELTS requirement). We are delighted to confirm that LSI Auckland is a Category 1 provider, and therefore all our students on student visas will be permitted to work for 20 hours per week. Category 1 refers to the NZQA category for high quality schools – at LSI Auckland we are very proud of our Category 1 status, and it is nice to see the Government rewarding high quality schools. For further information, please don’t hesitate to contact our staff at  LSI Auckland.
