New Zealand
as a Study
Destination

New Zealand has so much to offer your students.

New Zealanders are friendly and welcoming towards international students, making it the ideal environment for studying English.

Students from all around the world choose New Zealand to experience something new while they study.

It’s also safe and easy to travel around our beautiful country, so students have the opportunity to see a new country while studying abroad. Students can enjoy summer or winter activities, as well as arts and culture.

We have world class high schools, colleges, institutes of technology and universities if students want to continue studying in New Zealand. English is our first language so students get to practise English outside the classroom in everyday situations.

Students come to New Zealand to:

Study English and travel:
