The main purpose of a student visa is to allow international students to study full time in New Zealand. However, in some cases students from overseas can have the conditions of their student visa varied to allow them a limited opportunity to work while studying.
Before securing employment, it is important to check that you are allowed to work in New Zealand under the conditions of your visa. More information can be found on the Immigration New Zealand website.
