Study visa for New Zealand

The New Zealand student visa process is time consuming and students should apply at least 2 months before their course start date. The student needs to provide documents that show the ability to pay for the entire course of education. Such documents include movable or liquid assets such as bank statements and income tax papers.
The applicant needs to provide academic mark sheets and degrees as well as an acceptable IELTS score. A detailed cover letter stating reasons to study in New Zealand along with his/her goals after graduation and details of finances should also be included. The student will also require health records that have to be submitted along with the study visa application to the New Zealand high commission.
