    Doing PhD in New Zealand

    Doing PhD in New Zealand

    The PhD is an advanced research degree requiring a thesis based on original work. Directed by an appointed supervisor and an academic committee, it usually takes three to five years of full-time research. The resultant research is embodied in a thesis that is then assessed by examiners appointed by the University’s Senate.

    Why do a PhD?
    A PhD will help you to pursue an academic or research career. The degree is offered in all faculties and departments of the University, provided adequate supervision is available.

    Why New Zealand?
    Studying in New Zealand offers you the opportunity to obtain a world class qualification in one of the world’s safest and most beautiful countries. One great advantage is that new international PhD students pay domestic tuition fees!

    After graduation, international students may apply for either a post-study two-year work permit, or proceed directly to apply for residency in New Zealand provided that they meet the New Zealand Immigration requirements.
    Visit Immigration New Zealand Apply and Settle Homepage stream/work/workandlivepermanently to find out what is it like working and living here in New Zealand.

    Fee and visa arrangements for spouse and family
    New international PhD students are accorded domestic status for the purpose of tuition fees. Dependent children will also be classified as domestic students in New Zealand primary and secondary schools. The annual PhD tuition fee for 2008 is NZ$4,295.

    Your spouse or partner will be able to apply for an open work permit valid for the duration your course of study, while you can work up to 20 hours a week part-time.

    On completion of your PhD, you can apply for a one-year Open Work permit through Immigration New Zealand. If you are able to find a suitable job in your chosen field, you can then apply for a two-year work permit. During that two-year work permit time, you are then eligible to apply for Permanent Residency under the Skilled Migrant Category, provided that you meet the points requirement set out by Immigration.

    Entry requirements
    Acceptance into a PhD is based on academic merit, but you must also demonstrate a proven ability to carry out research independently, and possess a high level of critical research skill and theoretical understanding.
    In general, acceptance is based on a Bachelors (Honours) degree with First Class or Second Class (division I) Honours, or a Masters degree with First Class or Second Class (division I) Honours, or its equivalent. Acceptance is also subject to the availability of staff for supervision, and appropriate facilities. If English is not your first language, you will need to supply evidence of your English language proficiency. Some faculties and departments require a higher level of English language proficiency.

    For details, visit Welcome to The University of Auckland - The University of Auckland international/englishrequirements

    How to apply

    New Zealand: Học phí PhD sinh viên quốc tế = sinh viên bản địa (USD 3.800/year)

    Giảm học phí và chiến lược thu hút nhân tài.

    Từ năm 2006, tất cả nghiên cứu sinh người nước ngoài làm luận án tiến sĩ tại New Zealand được hưởng mức học phí chỉ bằng với nghiên cứu sinh bản địa. Cụ thể là mỗi một du học sinh đang làm tiến sĩ tại New Zealand chỉ còn phải đóng 3.800 đô Mĩ mỗi năm thay vì 19.000 đô Mĩ như trước kia. Đây là một niềm vui nghẹt thở với bất cứ một du học sinh nào đang làm tiến sĩ tại xứ sở kiwi. Nhờ có chính sách này mà họ đã trút được 80% gánh nặng học phí.

    Quy định hạ tối đa mức học phí cho nghiên cứu sinh quốc tế là một trong những quyết sách nằm trong chiến lược thu hút người tài trong lĩnh vực nghiên cứu của ngành giáo dục New Zealand nói riêng và chính phủ nước này nói chung. Cũng giống như Úc, New Zealand đang đứng trước nguy cơ thiếu hụt đội ngũ nghiên cứu kế cận khi giới trẻ ngày càng kém mặn mà với công việc nghiên cứu trong khi thế hệ ‘baby boomer’ (ra đời sau Thế chiến thứ 2) lại đang ở độ tuổi nghỉ hưu. Nhanh hơn người bạn láng giềng của mình, ngành giáo dục New Zealand đã đi trước một bước trong việc giảm học phí hệ đào tạo tiến sĩ nhằm thu hút nghiên cứu sinh nước ngoài để lấp lỗ hổng thiếu hụt trong nước.

    Ngay lập tức, chính sách giảm học phí của New Zealand đã cho thấy những tín hiệu khả quan. Ngay trong năm đầu tiên thực hiện quy định mới về học phí áp dụng với đối tượng du học sinh, số lượng sinh viên quốc tế đăng kí theo học PhD đã tăng vọt từ 693 lên 1084, tức tăng 56%. Đến năm học kế tiếp là 2007, con số này tiếp tục tăng thêm 40% nữa. Chiến lược thu hút những người làm công tác nghiên cứu quốc tế của New Zealand coi như thành công. Tuy nhiên, tham vọng của những người làm chính sách của đất nước này không chỉ dừng lại có vậy. Họ hy vọng rằng những du học sinh đến New Zealand làm nghiên cứu sau khi hoàn thành luận án tiến sĩ của mình sẽ tiếp tục ở lại và làm việc. Nếu điều này thành hiện thực thì quả là chính sách thu hút nhân tài trong lĩnh vực nghiên cứu của đất nước này đã đạt hiệu quả như mong muốn.

    Kinh nghiệm New Zealand dành cho Úc.

    Thành công bước đầu trong việc giải quyết vấn đề thiếu hụt đội ngũ nghiên cứu của New Zealand khiến nước Úc không thể khoanh tay. Vừa mới đây, Brett Parker, một nhà phân tích chiến lược cấp cao cho Bộ Giáo dục New Zealand, đã được một trong những trường đại học hàng đầu của Úc là Đại học Melbourne mời sang nói chuyện về những kinh nghiệm của đất nước mình trong lĩnh vực này. Ông này cũng nói rõ một trong những nguyên nhân chính cho việc đưa những chính sách tương tự áp dụng cho du học sinh đi vào hiện thực là muốn thúc đẩy công tác nghiên cứu khoa học cho đất nước mình.

    Một trong những vấn đề hóc búa mà New Zealand gặp phải là phải kiếm cho ra ngân sách để bù lỗ vào khoảng thiếu hụt do cắt giảm tối đa mức học phí làm tiến sĩ đối với du học sinh. Ông Parker cho biết đấy chính là những quỹ tiền thưởng được cấp một khi nghiên cứu sinh hoàn thành luận án tiến sĩ của mình. Như vậy là tiền thưởng cho nghiên cứu sinh hoàn thành luận án sẽ bù vào khoản học phí được cắt giảm trước đó.

    Do vậy, đây chính là một hình thức ‘thưởng trước’ cho nghiên cứu sinh quốc tế nhằm khuyến khích hoạt động nghiên cứu của những người này đồng thời lại giảm được nỗi lo gánh nặng về vấn đề học phí. Trong thực tế, tỉ lệ nghiên cứu sinh là người nước ngoài hoàn thành luận án tiến sĩ (65%) luôn cao hơn nghiên cứu sinh bản địa (45%). Do đó, vấn đề bù lỗ cho ngân sách coi như được giải quyết.

    Nghiên cứu sinh và mức sống nghèo khổ 20.000 đô.

    Đại học Úc cũng đã có những bước tiến hành trong việc củng cố và khuyến khích tình hình nghiên cứu dù chưa có được những chính sách quyết liệt kiểu như New Zealand đã làm. Đại học Sydney thiết lập và phát triển một nguồn thông tin trên Internet nơi những người có dự định làm tiến sĩ có thể gặp gỡ và trao đổi với các giáo sư có thể hướng dẫn mình trong tương lai. Rõ ràng, đây là một trong những việc làm rất hiệu quả trong việc thúc đẩy quá trình nghiên cứu đi từ dự định tới tiến hành thực sự.

    Tăng số lượng học bổng cũng là một trong những công việc Sydney đã làm nhằm thu hút thêm số người tham gia công tác nghiên cứu. Năm ngoái, thành phố lớn nhất nước Úc này đã cấp thêm 100 suất học bổng cho những người làm công tác nghiên cứu. Tuy nhiên, mức học bổng cấp cho người làm tiến sĩ hiện nay của Úc chỉ hấp dẫn được nghiên cứu sinh quốc tế, những người đến từ các nước thứ ba. Trong thực tế, mức học bổng 20.000 đô Úc một năm cấp cho người làm nghiên cứu sinh tại Úc vẫn là còn dưới mức sống nghèo khổ theo tiêu chuẩn của Úc. Hiển nhiên, mức học bổng đó không tài nào hấp dẫn nổi sinh viên Úc trong việc làm tiến sĩ và nghiên cứu khoa học. Do đó, cũng có đề xuất tăng mức học bổng cho người làm tiến sĩ lên mức 26.000 đô Úc một năm. Có như thế mới mong hy vọng kéo một bộ phận thanh niên ưu tú của Úc quay về với công tác nghiên cứu.

    Theo con số thống kê từ các trường đại học của Úc, con số sinh viên đăng ký theo học và làm việc trong các lĩnh vực nghiên cứu đã sút giảm từ hai năm qua. Hy vọng chính phủ Úc sẽ nhanh chóng có những biện pháp thích hợp để có thể thu hút hơn nữa người tài cho lĩnh vực nghiên cứu.

    Chính sách thu hút nghiên cứu sinh quốc tế của New Zealand.

    NZ: Domestic status for international PhD students

    Domestic status for international PhD students

    Since January 1, 2006, new international PhD students may be accorded domestic status for the purposes of tuition fees - meaning that you’ll pay domestic rates rather than international rates. A new international PhD student is defined as a foreign student enrolled for the first time after 19 April 2005 in a Doctor of Philosophy programme at a New Zealand university. To be eligible, students must reside in New Zealand during the duration of their doctoral programme. Students may undertake research activities overseas during their doctoral programme for a cumulative total of no more than 12 months.

    Additional benefits of this New Zealand Government policy include access to state schooling for dependent children and your partner's eligibility to apply for an open work permit, valid for the duration of the PhD study. This domestic fees policy represents a unique opportunity for international students.

    Read about the application and registration process if you wish to apply for a PhD. Applicants should indicate clearly that they are international students applying to be admitted under the new tuition fees policy. Go to Applying for a doctorate.

    For assistance and information with PhD administration, contact the School of Graduate Studies.

    Dependent children of all international PhD students will be classified as domestic students in New Zealand state schools from 1 January 2006.
    International students who have graduated from a course that would gain points under the Skilled Migrant Category will be eligible for a twelve-month open work permit.

    Once graduates have gained work this way, they can go on to apply for either a post-study two year work permit or proceed directly to apply for residency under the Skilled Migrant Category.

    Partners of all international postgraduate students are able to apply for an open work permit valid for the duration of the student's course of study. This policy change came into effect from 4 July 2005.

    These changes are the result of a review of immigration student policy carried out by the Department of Labour. The department worked closely with other government agencies and Education New Zealand (ENZ), New Zealand's international education industry body.

    OECD Reviews of Tertiary Education New Zealand

    ebook: OECD Reviews of Tertiary Education New Zealand

    In many OECD countries, tertiary education systems have experienced rapid growth over the last decade. With tertiary education increasingly seen as a fundamental pillar for economic growth, these systems must now address the pressures of a globalising economy and labour market. Within governance frameworks that encourage institutions, individually and collectively, to fulfil multiple missions, tertiary education systems must aim for the broad objectives of growth, full employment and social cohesion.

    In this context, the OECD launched a major review of tertiary education with the participation of 24 nations. The principal objective of the review is to assist countries in understanding how the organisation, management and delivery of tertiary education can help them achieve their economic and social goals. New Zealand is one of 14 countries which opted to host a Country Review, in which a team of external reviewers carried out an in-depth analysis of tertiary education policies.

    This report includes:

    . an overview of New Zealand's tertiary education system;

    . an account of trends and developments in tertiary education in New Zealand;

    . an analysis of the strengths and challenges in tertiary education in New Zealand; and

    . recommendations for future policy development.

    This review of tertiary education in New Zealand forms part of the OECD Thematic Review of Tertiary Education, a project conducted between 2004 and 2008 (Thematic Review of Tertiary Education).

    Study options extended for New Zealand working holiday visa holders

    Study options extended for New Zealand working holiday visa holders
    May 07 2009 by Bryan Palmer

    From July, the terms of the New Zealand working holiday visa are to change to attract more people from abroad to travel, work and study in New Zealand without the need for a specific student visa.
    New Zealand Immigration minister, Jonathan Coleman, said the changes are intended to make New Zealand even more attractive to young students and graduates. From July, visa holders will no longer be limited to one course of study for up to three months.

    New Zealand is to negotiate with countries to allow young people to study for up to six months while on the working holiday visa.

    Coleman says that working holiday visas are a great way to cement international relationships. He said, “working holiday schemes are a great way of encouraging young people to visit New Zealand. They raise New Zealand’s profile and, in foreign policy terms, signify a strong bilateral relationship.”

    He added that the schemes also bring a lot of money into the New Zealand economy, “total expenditure of working holiday makers was last year estimated to be around $103 million. That is a huge contribution to our economy.”

    The New Zealand immigration department hopes that changes being made in July will make the scheme more competitive against countries like Canada and Australia, which are also popular destinations for young people looking to live abroad for a year.


    Study options extended for New Zealand working holiday visa holders - Immigration News - Global Visas

    ============

    Changes to the New Zealand working holiday visa announced

    Important changes to the New Zealand working holiday visa scheme have been announced by the Immigration Minister Dr Jonathan Coleman, who says the changes are a positive step towards making the New Zealand working holiday scheme more attractive to young travellers.

    Currently, New Zealand working holiday visa holders have the right to study a single course for up to three months. As of July 2009, the New Zealand working holiday scheme will allow holders of that visa to study multiple courses while working and travelling in New Zealand, and depending on the nationality of the working holiday visa holder, the study period can be extended from three months to six months.

    Amanda Gripske from the New Zealand Visa Bureau said that while the opportunity to study in New Zealand is not usually high on the agenda for most working holidaymakers, it certainly is a positive step towards opening up the New Zealand working holiday to more people.

    "The New Zealand working holiday has always been a hugely popular scheme, particularly for young British and Irish travellers who are keen for a bit of adventure and the fresh outdoors.

    "Hopefully the changes implemented in July will give young travellers even more reason to travel to the other side of the world and truly experience New Zealand – and with UK nationals scoring an extra 11 months on the standard 12-month New Zealand working holiday visa, living the student life for a while won't cut too much into their holiday."

    Thirty countries participate in the New Zealand working holiday scheme, which Dr Coleman says represents the positive relations the country has with so many other nations.

    "Working holiday schemes are a great way of encouraging young people to visit New Zealand. They raise New Zealand’s profile and, in foreign policy terms, signify a strong bilateral relationship," Dr Coleman said in a press release.

    The New Zealand working holiday visa allows young travellers from any of these 30 countries to travel and work in New Zealand for up to 12 months, provided they meet certain health, character and financial requirements. In 2008, approximately $103 million was injected into the New Zealand economy from working holidaymakers alone.

    Dr Coleman is hoping that improvements such as these will keep New Zealand's working holiday programme at a competitive level with countries such as Australia and Canada, who reel in thousands of working holidaymakers every year.

    If you are interested in a New Zealand working holiday, take the online assessment to see if you are eligible for a New Zealand working holiday visa.

    The New Zealand Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in helping people with their New Zealand working holiday visa.

    Number of international students studying in New Zealand grows

    New Zealand is looking increasingly attractive to Indian students as a safe destination to study and then settle, the online Sindh Today reported.

    The number of Indian students studying in New Zealand has been steadily increasing over the past five years, and this year the New Zealand Government has been marketing itself as a safe alternative to neighbouring Australia where many Indian students have faced racist attacks.

    New Zealand has only around 6,000 Indian students, Australia has nearly 90,000, but this figure is a huge rise from the 500 Indian students in New Zealand five years ago.

    “India has become an important source for students in recent years. The New Zealand government very much welcomes this growing Indian student body,” says New Zealand High Commissioner to India Rupert Holborow.

    New Zealand invests about NZ$3 billion annually in the tertiary (universities and polytechnics) education system where most of the Indian students are enrolled. Following a number of racist attacks on Indians in Australia, New Zealand government has started marketing the country as a nation with a different culture from its neighbour.

    “What we want to do is to remind education agents in India that New Zealand is a different country from Australia – in the nicest possible way,” Robert Stevens, chief executive of Education New Zealand, was quoted as saying by the New Zealand Herald in June.

    The Sindh Today reported that many Indians living in New Zealand agree. There are also a lot of job opportunities for students and graduates in New Zealand despite the global recession.

    Students who have completed a qualification in New Zealand or who have completed a course with a minimum completion time of 3 years can take up the Study to Work Policy permit to undertake employment after their studies.

    They may also be eligible for a work to residence visa and take a step towards settling in New Zealand permanently if they meet the age, health and character visa requirements.

    Other ways of emigrating to New Zealand include the skilled migration category where applicants that meet the New Zealand basic visa requirements and undergo the process of application can be granted the right to live and work in New Zealand.
