Studying in New Zealand

Why New Zealand?

In New Zealand, every student enjoys a supportive learning environment. With relatively small class sizes, students receive more personalised attention from their tutors than they do in other parts of the world.

Students are treated as individuals – you’re encouraged to learn from others but also to think for yourself. You’ll learn how to harness your unique strengths and original ideas and channel them into an exciting career.

For international students, this personalised treatment extends beyond the classroom. New Zealand was the first country to adopt a code of practice that sets out standards for the care of international students, in and out of the classroom.

All institutions that host international students have staff dedicated to ensuring their time in New Zealand is happy and successful.
