Smile New Zealand Student Visa and later apply PR

My first degree is BCS. I have 140 points but as I checked in the forums, NZQA will not recognized BCS as level 7 so my case points will go down. I would like to know about study postgraduate in NZ for 1 year. In that case, will I get work visa next one year? any idea about New Zealand education?

Postgraduate Diploma in Information Technology (Level 8)

If one do this course and get job offer later then will we get PR? is it feasible solution?


Please advice me about this

you could try looking for work and see if you get a job offer or the study route would depend on what country you are on and if you want to pay to study.

Note that it looks as though you will now need 160 points.
