New Zealand is a country that has something for everyone – you can sip a cup of coffee and visit art galleries in Wellington, soak up the big-city vibes in Auckland, take a stroll through the beautiful city parks in Christchurch, go surfing off the coast of Dunedinseek adventure in Queenstown, or spend a day exploring the beautiful untouched beauty of the land that surrounds all the major cities in New Zealand. It’s hard to imagine a place more conducive to adventure.

As an English-speaking country, New Zealand is the perfect location for students that crave adventure but still want to feel comfortable navigating a foreign country. The academic culture in New Zealand is relaxed, with lectures that will engage and challenge, but less day-to-day busy-work. Courses are taught with locals so international students can truly get a glimpse of Kiwi culture. With a diverse portfolio of majors and course offerings at six of the top-ranked universities in New Zealand (and worldwide), students will be able to find what they need from one of ISA’s partner universities in New Zealand.
