    Default Studying,living,abroad

    Hello everyone my name is Bobby,
    I have recently become very interested in New Zealand, I am currently in the U.S. Coast Guard as an aviation maintenance technician I've been in the field for around 4 years, but honestly I'm unhappy living in the U.S. and want to experience a new place so I am getting out of the Coast Guard sometime at the end of this year, and my options are open I have my G.I. Bill which I can use abroad, they pay for my schooling and give me a monthly living allowance and abroad I think the rate is 1500USD. So with that said I think i'd like to go to school in New Zealand, I do plan on visiting later this year, but I already have the feeling through research that I am gonna love the place, and I'm not a naive person I know there are down sides to everyplace, but I believe the up's will far outweigh the down's. So what I want to ask is about student visa's and if there are any veterans out there who are doing kind of the same thing, maybe the road you took? And if anyone has any advice for me in general? I would very much appreciate it. :)

    With Kind Regards,

    Hi Bobby, welcome .

    To start off, perhaps you'd like to take a look through this. There are a few links on the left side of the page which might help as well.
