1. Student Friendly Cities

New Zealand has countless student-friendly cities. Therefore, it should hardly come as a surprise that New Zealand is constantly ranked as a top study abroad destination. To name but a few cities: Auckland, North Palmerston, Wellington and Christchurch all have fantastic services and great universities where you can study and live to your heart’s content.

In addition, all the cities have happiness-inducing weather, are close to the beach, have endless sporting facilities and plenty of parties. By choosing New Zealand you can have the study abroad experience you have always dreamt of.

2. Dream Destination for Adventures

New Zealand produced the first man to ever climb Mount Everest and also the creator of the bungee-jump. Thus, it comes as no surprise that this country is filled with adventures and adrenaline junkies. New Zealand’s adventures and nature leave nothing to be desired. You can surf, you can hike, you can ski and you can skydive.

Adventures on your New Zealand bucket list:

  • Bungee-jumping in Queenstown
  • Skydiving in Aucklan
  • Rafting
  • Hiking the Tongariro Alpine Crossing
  • Scuba Diving
  • Climbing Mount Taranaki

Moreover, the wildlife in New Zealand is something to behold. Try and find a Kiwi! (the bird, not the fruit). They are nocturnal creatures so it is quite a challenge. New Zealand is also home to the smallest dolphin species, Hector’s Dolphin. Lastly, take the opportunity to search for the beautiful yellow-eyed penguin

3. Kiwi Education is Fantastic

The land of the Kiwis consistently tops educational rankings and has many top ranking universities, with 5 of them in the top 300 in the world. Furthermore, teachers are highly educated and more often than not researchers themselves. Active participation, creativity and understanding of different perspectives are some of the many qualities you can pick up by studying in New Zealand.

4. You Get To Study in Middle Earth

Home to hobbits, warriors, orcs and dragons. If you’re a fan of the famous trilogies, Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, then choosing New Zealand should be a no-brainer.

Take advantage of your stay here and visit the memorable scenes shown in the movies. Visit The Shire and experience firsthand the 44 Hobbit Holes from which Bilbo Baggins emerged to commence his grand adventure. Tongariro National Park is home to the feared Mount Doom in The Lord of the Rings. Other famous locations that you can visit are Christchurch, Nelson and Cromwell.
