New Zealand propose changes on student v
The results of the major board exams have been declared and now many students may plan to look at some of the foreign universities for higher studies. While New Zealand has become one of the prospective nation to pursue higher studies for many Indian students. The country's immigration department has announced major changes for a student visa that would enable the "best students" to stay on and contribute to the country's economy.

The changes to the "Study to Work" visa aiming to attract students in helping them get work and residence would come into effect from 25 July 2011. New Zealand's international student population has grown rapidly in recent years. India has become the third largest source of international students to the country.

According to reports, nearly 11,600 Indian students enrolled in New Zealand in 2010. As per the rules now, the students would need to study in the country for at least two years in order to get the "Study to Work" visa.

New Zealand is also taking a call on those education providers who have been enrolling students with poor academic record and have least chance to come out successful.The new rules proposed may help to filter the quality of students.
