Students love New Zealand because of the natural beauty, friendly people, open spaces and excellent education system. New Zealand is one of the top three safest countries in the world due to the low crime rate and absence of dangerous animals. Auckland’s east coast beaches (five minutes from the school) have small waves and are perfect for swimming, sailing, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. The west coast beaches (40 minutes from the school) have big waves and are perfect for surfing. We encourage our international students to explore the country they are living in so we work with a small number of tour companies who are experts in creating exciting tours for international students.
