Why Study in New Zealand?
Every new day in the world begins in New Zealand. Light and time start here. Youthful in age and outlook, New Zealand is the natural home for fresh ideas. Come catch some new light. It is a small and distant destination, it is a unique country which has a lot of things to make your study experience really wonderful.
It is an amazing, stunning, un-spoilt, un-crowded and breathtaking country. Despite its small size, you'll find a whole world with every type of landscape, scenery, activity, lifestyle and culture that you can imagine.
While similar in size to the United Kingdom, Japan or California, New Zealand, with its North and South islands, only has a population of 4.2 million, so it's easy to get away from the crowds.
New Zealand has developed a European culture, as well as embracing the rich and historic cultural elements from the Maori and Pacific Island heritages and the rapidly growing multi-cultural Asian communities. New Zealanders, or 'kiwis' as they are often known, are very well educated, very well travelled, and have developed a 'can do' philosophy with a keen sense of adventure, inventiveness and fun. As well as being famous for bungee jumping, jet boating, kiwi-fruit and millions of sheep, New Zealanders have an international reputation and recognition for excelling in many areas, including the arts, science, sport, technology, business and manufacturing, New Zealanders believe they can do anything, love the challenge to prove it, and usually do.
New Zealand is nature in its purest form. The landscape is an ancient one, a unique one, and a changing one, with many geographical formations shaped by volcanic and tectonic forces. The country's isolation from the rest of the world has led to the evolution of distinctive flora and fauna, echoing back to ancient prehistoric times. The subtropical forest is steeped in spirituality: creatures like the tuatara (a lizard that's an actual living dinosaur), the mighty Kauri tree and unique, 16, endearing flightless birds such as the kiwi itself. Despite its small size, New Zealand's coastline stretches over 15,000 km of coves, headlines and beaches teeming with marine life of every description.
No wonder New Zealand is the ultimate outdoor adventure playground, offering every kind of thrill and degree of blood-pumping adrenalin adventure to pure hedonistic relaxation and pleasure.
