New Zealand, Aotearoa, Land of the Long White Cloud – whatever you call it, we call it paradise. For international students seeking their first dose of adventure, you couldn’t find a better place.
New Zealand is the ideal study and travel destination. International students can develop their English language skills in a friendly, relaxed culture where English is the main language. You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the country’s beautiful and diverse natural environment.
When deciding where to study in New Zealand you can choose your school, your subjects, and your extracurricular activities – things like surfing, skiing, sailing, horse riding and outdoor education.
You can choose a public or private school that has the attractions or activities you want, in an area you like. Some schools have very few international students while others have a lot. Let us know your preferences and we can recommend the right school for you.
All schools that host international students must abide by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students that ensures students are well supported and protected.
