If you join your course in Feb 2024, you finish your course by Oct 2024.

However, if you enroll in April 2024, your course will end April 2025. This is because you will have a long break of 4 months during end of the year from Oct 2024 – Jan 2025 when Class I EK’s & Electrical Marine Control. Eng. are conducted (Oct & Nov 2024) and the 2 months Christmas break (Dec + Jan) is there.

You should enroll a minimum of 2 months before the course start date so that you have sufficient time for doing your IELTS / PTE Academic English language test, arrange funds for the NZ student visa and apply for your New Zealand student visa as well.

There are no scholarships or installment facilities available. The full academic course tuition fees must be paid before you can get your final unconditional visa.

Visa Duration:

The length of visa that you get is 12-13 months.


Students stay off campus in Auckland. Expected monthly expense for food and accommodation will be around NZ$ 1,200 per month on a conservative budget when living in a shared house in Auckland. A typical house will have 4 rooms and each student will have one room for  himself. The washroom and kitchen are shared amenities. Students buy the groceries, cook food at home and divide the cost amongst themselves. Students must make their own accommodation arrangements. We will guide you with this process but can’t arrange a house for you in Auckland.

Part Time Work:

You can work 20 hours per week during term-time and full-time during vacations like Christmas. 

The minimum pay in New Zealand is NZ$ 22.70 per hour. By working part-time at the minimum wage in NZ, you can earn up to NZ$ 1,816 per month which will offset the money you spend every month on your living expenses and earn you a bit extra. You can hope to earn above the minimum wage if working night shifts or weekends. 

In difficult times like Covid , recession, etc., part-time work may dry up and hence you should have your own funds rather than relying on part-time work for your sustenance in New Zealand.

Students work part-time in Mc Donalds, KFC, pizza delivery shops, food takeaway shops, departmental stores as cashiers / helpers, security guards, etc.

Total Expenses:

Here we will calculate all total expenses over 12 months stay in Auckland, New Zealand for the MEC2 course.

▪ Tuition Fees: NZ$ 26,000

▪ Medical Insurance: NZ$700

▪ STCW advanced  courses and ancillary courses: NZ$ 4,000

▪ Tanker Courses (if required): NZ$ 2,000

▪ Flight Ticket (return): NZ$ 3,000

▪ Visa Fees: NZ$ 430

▪ Living Expenses for 12 months @ NZ$ 1,200 per month = NZ$ 14,400

▪ MNZ fees: NZ$ 1,000

▪ Miscellaneous: NZ$ 1,000

Total: NZ$ 50,530

(Approx INR 25.30 Lakhs @ 1Nz$ = INR 50)

If working on tankers, add an extra NZ$2,000 i.e., 1 Lakh INR to the above cost.

If doing the combined Class I CoC whilst not holding the Class 2 from NZ, then add an extra NZ$3,250 to the above cost considering the higher cost of NZ Class I CoC for non-NZ MEC2 CoC holders.

By working part-time, you earn NZ$ 1,816 per month. Assuming you worked part-time for 10 months, you earned: NZ$ 18,160. Some months you may be working full-time for e.g., during vacations and earn double the money that you earn by working part-time, but we have not considered that. 

So net expense = NZ$ (50,530 – 18,160) = NZ$ 32,370

(approx. 16.20 Lakhs INR).

Visa Procedure:

▪ We will assist you with the visa procedure.

▪ As the visa procedure is totally online now, we can assist you even if you are residing in other countries for e.g., Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Burma, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, etc.

▪ The visa processing time is 4 weeks. At times it can take longer also if the rush at the visa office is longer or some visa offices shut down due to Covid, floods, strikes / riots, etc.

▪ MIT Auckland will issue the unconditional offer letter (visa letter) after you have submitted the IELTS (or PTE) Academic test result. There are no tuition fees to be paid to the college to get the visa letter.

▪ The total funds to be shown for the NZ student visa consists of:

Tuition Fees: NZ$ 26,000

Living Expenses: NZ$ 20,000

Flight Travel: NZ$ 2,000

Total = NZ$ 48,000 = 24 Lakhs INR

▪ The funds can be shown by your parents, your spouse, you’re in laws and your own brother / sister. Your Uncle / Aunt / Relatives / Friends, etc., cannot show the money on your behalf.

▪ You can show money as cash savings in bank account from salary, fixed deposits > 6 months old, educational loan / personal loan or a mix of the above.

▪ If you are taking a gold loan or selling property / car, showing agricultural income, then the funds must be kept for a minimum of 6 months before they can be shown for the NZ visa. The reason being that it is difficult for Immigration New Zealand to verify the authenticity of these income and hence you will be asked to keep this money for 6 months in your bank account before you can show for the NZ student visa. Even then the visa officer may refuse to accept these as genuine sources of funds.

▪ If you have funds but are not able to show the documentary evidence of the source of this money, there is a FUND TRANSFER SCHEME for NZ visa, wherein you can inform the visa officer in the online visa application form that you will transfer the full living expenses to a New Zealand bank account before being offered an unconditional visa. This request may or may not be, however, accepted by the officer.

▪ We do assist students from India in processing of educational loan / personal loan. Although loans are never guaranteed we are able to get loans processed for 70% of our applicants.

▪ You must do a NZ approved medical. We will guide you with that procedure.

▪ We will send you a sample filled up visa form so that you can use that as a reference to fill up your online visa application form. We will then login to your online account to check the visa form that you have filled. Then you will upload all the necessary documents online. We will ask you to send PDF files of all documents to be uploaded on the visa website to us on WhatsApp to check before you upload the documents. After uploading the documents, you will pay the NZ student visa fees of NZ$ 430 using your debit / credit card. It will take up to 4 hours to complete the online visa form, upload all the documents and pay the visa fees. All of this can be done from the comfort of your home as the procedure is totally online. Only for the NZ visa medical do you have to move out of your house. NZ student visa comes by email only. You do not have to submit your passport at the visa office. The above is the rule applicable for students from India and the procedure may vary a little bit in other countries.

The visa procedure is simple. The problem that students usually face is in arranging the show money for NZ student visa as you cannot show borrowed money from friends / relatives. Also unaccounted money must be kept for 6 months, or you must opt for the Funds Transfer Scheme (FTS) which may or may not be accepted by the visa office. The logic is that NZ says that not only the student should have the money, but it should be a clean source of money and hence they are very strict regarding the source of money being shown for visa purposes.

If applying for an educational loan / personal loan, do contact us soon after signing off from the ship. The longer you stay at home after signing off, the more difficult it becomes to avail yourself of a loan from the bank.

Permanent Residency (PR) in New Zealand:

The 1-year post study work visa has been removed for the 2/E course from July 2022 as this course is categorised as Level 7 non-degree and the seafaring jobs are not in the NZ  green list. If you hold 4 years, BE Mechanical or BE Marine, then you can do a MSc Mechanical Eng. course in NZ which will give you a 3-year post study work (PSW) visa rights in NZ. During those 3 years PSW visa time, you can look for jobs in marine workshops in NZ based on your MEC2 CoC and prior relevant work-experience. After 1 year of relevant skilled job work experience in NZ, you may become eligible to apply for PR if you qualify under the new points-based system that applies from Oct 2023. You can read more details on the Immigration New Zealand website and can file such PR applications only through licensed migration agents whose details you can get on the INZ website. I work in the capacity of a college representative and not as an INZ licensed migration advisor.
