  • What is a Category 1 School?
    In the most recent review, NZQA reported they are ‘Highly Confident in the Educational Performance of NSLS’. This makes us a Category 1 provider. This was awarded to NSLS by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority in 2010, 2014 and again in 2018. This is an achievement that we are very proud of and we feel it reflects the professionalism of all staff and the high level of academic achievement that our students attain.

Student Visa Work Rights: If students study with us for 14 weeks or longer, their student visa will automatically allow them to get a part-time job during term and to get a full-time job during the holiday period. 2. Pathway Student Visa: We are one of the Pathway Education Providers. A Pathway Student Visa allows an international student to undertake a progression of up to three consecutive programmes of study with selected education providers on a single visa. The visa will be valid up to a maximum of five years. 3.
