Students all over the country are readily signing up in their thousands to a cause that affects them far more than any other group in society – the future of our environment.

One Friday in mid-February has become perhaps one of the most significant days of the year for students all over the country.

The latest rankings by the London-based agency Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) have rated NZ universities in the world’s top 50 in 20 different subjects, and they place our university system as the 18th best in the world.

A life of work faces all of us when we leave school, so let’s start thinking about where the jobs might be. A good place to get an idea of what industries are on the rise is on the job listing site SEEK.

Stay home and study, or move to one of the hottest places in NZ for university. From the start of this year, more students will be able to study more subjects and complete more qualifications at the University of Waikato - in Tauranga.

Chances are you will hear some odd accents around your colleges this year. Don’t worry – it’s likely one of the new teachers recruited from around the world to help relieve the shortage of teachers many schools are experiencing.

We all know New Zealand is popular with international students, but did you know it was the number #1 study abroad destination in the world?

In the next year or two, you’re set to hear plenty from your careers advisers and career visitors to school about skills and the fact you will need these for work and success in the future.

 

The most searched for career in New Zealand last year was police officer, according to search data on the Careers NZ website.

The study options for many students around the country keen on a future in the agriculture sector got slimmer over the summer break.

Summer jobs are a great way to get some money together, but they can also be a foot in the door to permanent, full-time employment.

You have heaps to sort before you start studying next year. Make your Student Loan application the top of your list. Use SchoolLeaver's guide to help.

So, you’d like to get an apprenticeship or trainee role? That’s great news. Vocational skills are the lifeblood of many businesses. But, how do you get someone to take a chance on you when you don’t have any previous work experience?

It’s official – the apprenticeship programme run by our marine industry training organisation is the best in the world.

 

If we are going to make an impact on climate change, pollution and other planet environmental problems, we are going to need to think and be sustainable.

Do you ever try start an important task, only to end up scrolling mindlessly through Snapchat, Instagram, or Facebook? Social media can be a huge distraction when it comes to working productively.

A server crashing with an hour to go in the exam room is the latest hiccup in the drive to have NCEA exams available online within the next two years.

Artificial Intelligence- ah yes, the big bad wolf that’s coming to get our jobs. We’ve all heard about the robots of the future and how it’ll be machines doing everything one day, but there’s more to it than that. Sure, robots can do a lot, and it’s ...

Thought about Physiotherapy? It’ll be even easier to become one from next year when Wintec opens NZ’s third school of physiotherapy after AUT and Otago University.

Exams are close. Really close. Time to reach for those last minute study and cramming plans if you are going to get the grades you want (or maybe need).
