  Student Experiences of Studying in New Zealand

“Meeting new people from all around the world was easily the highlight of my time at IPU New Zealand. It was surreal that so many nationalities get together in such a pristine little campus like IPU. I truly enjoyed the colourful cultural experiences there, especially the Ohanami Festival every September. It’s nice to know that a lot of the countries that I go to, I know some IPU friends living there! The experience taught me self-confidence, independence, resourcefulness, a multi-cultural approach to things, global perspectives, and the ability to express myself better… It was one of the greatest milestones of my life and made up a big chunk of my life experience. It really shaped who I am today.”

– Olivia Mazuki, former student at IPU New Zealand
