Why study abroad in New Zealand?
The people and the climate are two of the main draws for thousands of students who choose to study abroad in New Zealand each year. New Zealand has one of the mildest all year round climates and virtually continual sunshine, perfect for joining in the many outdoor sports that the ‘Kiwis’ love or for exploring New Zealand’s natural beauty. You’ll feel instantly at home too with the warmth of a laid back ‘Kiwi’ welcome.
The study and work option also makes a study abroad programme in New Zealand an affordable option for many. On a student visa, you can work up to 20 hours a week helping you to fund your study abroad whilst you learn. Due to the buoyancy of the New Zealand job market, the types of work available are extensive, offering further opportunities to gain new work skills all whilst improving your English skills. When you finish your study abroad programme, you may also have the possibility to extend your work experience for up to a year or seek internships opportunities.
