Free notebook / netbook; free WiFi, free SIM card; up to $6,000.00 scholarship, job placement assistance; work 20 hours while studying; work full time on vacation; after completion of only one (1) year course get a job search visa and pursue permanent residency and employment.

No other country offers this one-year pathway from student to resident.  But the one-year student to resident option ends April 2, 2012.

No other school gives these benefits and more than National Tertiary Education Consortium (NTEC) - a friendly, caring and welcoming institution (free pick-up from the airport and prior to orientation and job skills training).

To give Filipino and international students to qualify for the one-year study to residency option, NTEC accepts intakes or enrolment every 3rd week.

NTEC courses are of high quality and relevance and are all NZQA (New Zealand Qualification Authority) approved.  Two Institutes of learning (National Technology Institute and Concordia Institute of Business) offer 1 – 2 years diploma courses in Computing, Hospitality (Food and Beverage Service; Operations Supervision; Management and Operational Management) as well as Diploma in Commerce and Business Management.

Graduates of NTEC have moved on to full employment and residency.  Here are a few testimonials:

My goal is to settle in NZ, working in the hospitality industry, especially in a management team. I joined Concordia English Academy and Barista and Hospitality short courses. I found NZ to be very open to immigrants and…have a relaxing environment to work and live in. – Karuna Terui, Japan

Teachers (in NTEC) take time to make sure I understand, they are very practical, helping us grow professionally. They helped prepare my CV and assisted me in finding part time job. Best college I’ve ever been to! – Alexey Alexeevich Trifonov, Russia

For more information on how to qualify for courses in NTEC, you can call Immigrant Visa Center, NTEC’s partner immigrant advocacy firm in the Philippines at (02) 634-8717 or send your complete and updated resume to immigrants@visacenter.org
