    Default Getting a teaching qualification in nz

    Hi folks,
    I have been teaching biology for almost 10 years in high schools both Home and abroad.
    I did BSc. BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE without education.I intend to move to nz to pursue a certificate in education.
    Is it possible to come on a tourist visa first and then get a school to pursue my education?.
    thanks

    You could arrive on a tourist visa, but you would need a student visa before you would be allowed to start a course, and you would also be liable for international fees.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    You can read up about the Student Visa here if you haven't already done so. There are a few links on the left hand side as well.
