Life in New Zealand

Welcome to New Zealand, a beautiful, unique and exciting place to live and study.

Manaakitanga, a Maori word that loosely translates as ‘hospitality’, sums up the welcoming spirit of New Zealanders who offer visitors this hospitality with generosity and respect.

As part of a Kiwi study experience, you will make social connections and business contacts you’ll treasure forever, forming lifelong friendships with new and interesting people from New Zealand and around the world.

Students who choose homestay accommodation get the chance to interact with a New Zealand host family and their friends, a great way to experience New Zealand life and practise English at the same time.
