Postgraduate Diplomas in Professional Accounting at Level 8 are only offered at universities so they can be quite expensive. Mga at least NZ$31k sa tuition pa lang. Graduate Diploma in Professional Accounting might be a good alternative for you. Tuition fee is closer to around NZ$20k. After 1 year of study outside of Auckland, may 2 year post-study work visa. More than enough time for you to find skilled employment.
May client ako before na Graduate Diploma in Professional Accounting. Didn't have difficulty finding a job after the course at nakaapply din ng residence.

Hello po sa lahat. Im planning po to choose student pathway for new zealand. Ang school ko po ay Aspire2 International level 7 graduate diploma in IT and meron sila Aucland and Christchurch campus.I understand na npa ka risk po ng student visa kasi wlang guarantee na mkakuha ng work. Questions lang po before I pay the tuition.
1) Ok po ba yng school na Aspire2 International?
2) Saan po ba adisable na place for study, cost of living and finding work for IT, Auckland or christchurch?
3) If let say po graduate kna, uuwi ka pa ba ng pilipinas to apply for opem working visa?kasi po ang sabi mg agency 1 year student level 7 graduate diploma in IT with 1 year open working visa.
4) I believe po na ang IT course nasa long term shortage skill list po ng NZ immigration, malaking po ba chance na mkahanap ng work and resident sa NZ?
5) how much po ba if room lng yng e rent mo for if nasa auckland ka and sa christchurch?
You might wanna consider how recent INZ developments in response to the global coronavirus pandemic will affect your particular case daxiebrown

Hi daxiebrown, I gotta agree with archangel that it'd be wise to observe the situation as it evolves. No harm in doing your research in the meantime though.
I'm a licensed adviser based in Metro Manila and would be happy to answer your questions.
I've had clients go to Aspire2 with good outcomes (ie skilled employment related to their study, residence). Programmes are reasonably priced and class sizes aren't overwhelming. Cost of living is lower in Christchurch. If you're granted a post-study work visa, it isn't restricted to a location so you could opt to move to AKL if you prefer to move. You can apply for this while in NZ so you're not required to return to the Philippines after graduation to extend your stay.
Chch has a clear advantage however. If you take a Graduate Diploma outside of AKL and it's completed by 31 Dec 2021, the post study visa you're eligible for is 2 years. If you study in AKL, it's just a 1 year you get.
You should know that Graduate Diplomas in IT are not on the LTSSL. The qualifications required by the list basically are bachelor degrees. This just means that you won't qualify for any immigration instructions linked to the LTSSL. Nonetheless, you could still find work in the industry. My clients who've taken Graduate Diplomas in IT have moved on to good employment.

Lots of things have changed - borders closed, application processing put on hold, schools closing campuses, etc. I could walk you through it.
