Is Moving to the UK Right for You?


Picture yourself walking across the London bridge, on your way to work in the morning. Catching high-energy soccer matches at Wembley stadium. Taking road trips through the countryside on your weekends.

From the grand, historic architecture of London to the quaint seaside of Brighton, to the authentic charm of Dublin, the UK has so much to offer. Moving to the UK is something many Kiwis dream of, but only some get the chance to experience.

So, do you want to be a dreamer or a doer? While we think practically anyone can benefit from moving to the UK, here’s how to know whether it’s truly the right decision for you.

You’re keen on experiencing a different culture

While UK culture and Kiwi culture have very close ties, there’s still a distinct difference between the two. If you’re the type of person who relishes experiencing other cultures, then moving to the UK is a great choice. People from the UK are generally friendly, welcoming, and polite – just like us Kiwis.

You want to move overseas, but don’t want a language barrier

Moving overseas is something we all dream of, but language barriers can put us off. Learning a new language is strenuous and exhausting, especially if it doesn’t come naturally to you. Finding a job in overseas countries can be even more difficult if you don’t speak the language. But moving to the UK will never present that problem!

You want to find better jobs for better pay

The UK is known for having generous incomes, drawing not only Kiwis but other Europeans to its shores. While the median weekly earnings in New Zealand are under NZ$1000, the UK’s median weekly earnings are around $NZ1100.

Your earnings go further in the UK too. The cost of living is higher in New Zealand, with primary products costing around 10% more than those in the UK.

You’re moving with family

Family life in the UK is a happy life. The UK is one of the best countries in the world to raise children in, with a high level of safety, great healthcare, and plenty of cities and neighbourhoods that are family friendly.

There are top-quality schools in almost all UK cities, with options for public and private education. Universities in the UK are some of the best in the world, so when the kids grow up, they can further their education in the best way possible.
