Their culture is easy-going and politically stable and as a result, you get to meet a lot of friendly and peace-loving people. Now is the chance to make new friends and grow with like-minded people! Further, the country’s population is rich in diversity, so you will fit right in.
- Work opportunities- You will be allowed to work up to 20 hours per week through your semester on a student visa in NZ! This can be convenient for you to supplement your education in a foreign land. Additionally, you can gain a ‘work permit’ besides your visa for two years after your course ends.

Our New Zealand Students
Niharika Ma’am was very helpful in early sphere of the application process and was very patient with me. She refine my interviewing skills gave me the confidence in my communication skills to help me better prepare for the college interview sessions. The way application was made, made me bag not one but two IVY League Universities. KUDOS!! to Niharika ma`am & Ednet team!!
Before I came to Ednet, I never thought I could get into Swan. I had limited my potential to much lower colleges. But its only with the hard work put from everyone`s side that I could
Ednet has been instrumental in getting me into my dream school. Through Niharika Ma’am guidance, I was able to present myself in a completely new light, highlighting my strengths and ideas in the best possible manner. Everyone at Ednet is extremely approachable. I was able to improve my essays and create a better image.
Ednet is not like a usual consultancy organization for me. Everyone here really spent a lot of their time on everyone`s applications. Niharika ma’am and everyone at Ednet at times went out of the way to help me. From reaching out to them at midnight to sitting at the office whole day, I realise what an important role Ednet played in my application process. I am glad I came here.
I have been working with ednet consultants for the last three years and they have helped me in every stage of the application process. Niharika ma’am, the head counselor helped me channelize my thoughts and make a decision regarding which universities to apply to. She also helped in drafting a plan to achieve my objectives. Following this the admissions department enlists all the requirements and activities to be done. The editorial department plays a great role in brainstorming and helping us write the essays. Overall, ednet consultants has been a major player in getting me admission into a respected university like NYU.
Niharika ma'am, you have been a true guidance and support throughout the year. Thankful for all the efforts made by you and the Ednet team. And Reena ma'am thank you for always motivating me.
My experience at Ednet was absolutely amazing. I was guided at every step of the way. I always felt comfortable while applying to one of the top universities and I think I have got through the top universities only because of the impeccable professionalism of the consultants at Ednet.
The entire team of Ednet is very helpful and I thank them for helping me at every juncture of the admission process. Special thanks to Reena ma'am for help in filling admission forms and overall guidance and support.
Thank you so much! I know you’ve worked really hard on each of my applications, especially this one. You’ve edited all my essays so beautifully and read each of my thoughts I penned down even if they made no sense at all. If Reena ma’am, Betsy ma’am and Gayatri ma’am hadn’t constantly been after me, I might not have been able to meet a single deadline. I have been with them for just a year but still feel more connected to them than I do to any of my teachers in school.Their efforts were so genuine and they always managed to make me smile.Thank you ma’am for always being there for me, motivating me and supporting me. I first came to you in class 10 for my subjects after which I visited many counsellors for my college applications. Ma’am no one could guide me the way you and your team could and so I came back to you. You helped me start my high school journey and end it too. Thank you so much ma’am for caring for me like your own child. Thank You.
Putting together an application to business school is a daunting task. Niharika was instrumental in guiding me through the entire process and helping me prioritize. What I had been lacking was a sound second opinion on my essays. In addition to discussing my essay thoughts at length, Niharika would go through them with sincerity and provide a constructive critique. I greatly appreciate Niharika’s time, commitment, and accessibility.
