Top-notch academics meet exquisite natural beauty and Maori culture in New Zealand. Enjoy outdoor adventure by taking advantage of hiking, skiing, fishing, camping, and river rafting opportunities throughout the country, or simply take a stroll through the famously beautiful countryside. New Zealand has plenty of urban excitement, too: from the capital city of Wellington to sophisticated Auckland to the South Island’s “English City” Christchurch. New Zealand’s cities feature sports, entertainment, cultural attractions, and lots to see and do. It’s no wonder Lonely Planet named New Zealand the top destination in the world two years in a row!
The flexibility of the New Zealand university system encourages students to enroll in a wide variety of courses and subjects. Consider taking at least one Maori studies course to learn about the diversity of New Zealand’s history and population. Also join one of the many clubs and societies sponsored by the university’s student association as it is the quickest and most rewarding way to connect to the active student body.
