The perfect blend of outdoor and urban adventure

New Zealand is home to modern vibrant cities with nightlife, restaurants and shops. Of course, New Zealand also boasts some of the world’s most beautiful scenery. There’s always plenty to discover.

  • A new balance of study and play
    • New Zealand students enjoy a healthy study/ life balance - some say it’s the best in the world. You can live in an urban environment within easy reach of the New Zealand’s stunning landscape and wide open spaces.
  • A new, healthier you
    • With so much great outdoors close at hand, it’s easy to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Nowhere in New Zealand is more than 120 km from the sea, and every city and town has native bush reserves with tracks for walking or cycling together with parks, sports clubs and swimming pools. The air is clean and there’s always room to move.
  • Very eventful
    • There’s always a lot going on in New Zealand. Big name artists visit regularly, there are professional theatre, opera and ballet companies and orchestras. Going to the movies is very popular, along with shopping in big malls and small boutiques. There are many styles of food for all tastes.
  • Weather check
    • New Zealand has what’s called a ‘temperate’ climate. That means we have four distinct seasons, with summers that are generally warm and dry and winters that are relatively mild and wet. While it can get sub-tropically hot at times in the far north, and crisp and cold in the deep South, there are no weeks of baking heat and humidity when moving around is hard, or months of being snowbound.
