As a Category 1 School we can offer our students Work Rights.

This means students who study at Seafield on a student visa of 14 weeks or longer, can work up to 20hrs per week while they study!

Living and working in New Zealand

The purpose of the International students’ visas is for full time study. International students are allowed to work part time, but there are rules and conditions on the part time work they can do, which are very important to know. Details on the same can be found on the INZ website in the work rules for students section.

To receive payment all students need to have a bank account and an IRD number. An IRD number is an eight or nine digit number unique to you – it’s important because all your tax and personal details are linked to it.

Please refer to How to apply for an IRD number.
