…a beautiful and unique country in the South Pacific, boasting spectacular landscapes, lush forests, sweeping coastlines and vast mountain chains.
New Zealand is comparable in size to Great Britain or Japan. However, with a population of just over four million, it is one of the world’s least crowded countries and renowned for its natural beauty. New Zealanders are friendly, welcoming and enjoy meeting people from other cultures. Mäori, New Zealand’s indigenous people, make up around 15 percent of the population. However, there are many different ethnic communities living in New Zealand, including Europeans, Asians and Pacific Islanders. As an independent nation with a stable economy and excellent health facilities, New Zealand enjoys a safe and open political environment. While studying in New Zealand you will enjoy a high standard of living. You will also find tuition and living costs compare favourably with other countries.
