Why study in New Zealand?

New Zealand sits in the Pacific Ocean, comprising the North Island, the South Island, and over 700 smaller islands.

Studying in New Zealand as an international student is full of opportunities for unique experiences. 

It is a popular choice for international students due to its welcoming and friendly population. It also has a high standard of living and was ranked the Happiest Country in the World in 2020.

In 2019, New Zealand was also named the world’s second most peaceful country by the Global Peace Index.

The benefits of studying in New Zealand include its excellent work-life balance and opportunities post-graduation. These include work experience opportunities in technology, travel, and government.

You can also work alongside your studies in the country’s flourishing hospitality industry.

Students can explore live music, theatre, film, dance, free festivals and international sports fixtures. 

Most cities and towns are relatively small and uncrowded and you’re never far from beaches, parks, and walking trails.

Student life

International student life in New Zealand is full of great experiences. Students benefit from large co-curricular programmes including sports, the arts, and additional learning. Explore forests, snow-capped mountains, sandy beaches, lakes and fjords outside of class and learn more about the country.
