Holidays in New Zealand for international students

Every year, educational institutions in New Zealand accept about 100.000 foreign students: both universities and secondary schools, language and professional courses are popular. What does attract foreign students?

  • stable developed economy
  • prestigious specialties
  • tolerant political, racial position of the country
  • high quality education
  • mild, warm climate, many places for year-round rest.

The arguments are strong, so that the flow of emigrants does not decrease, most of them successfully settle in, receive an elite education and build a successful career.

A visit to the New Zealand vacation camp at any time of the year is an opportunity to “rehearse” future life and study in an island country, to understand the specifics, national mentality, comfort of living according to the conditions of another culture, and at the same time to raise your language level and relax with soul on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.

The table below provides an overview of the most popular vacation courses for foreign students in camps in different cities of New Zealand - Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch, Torangi, etc.

  • Accommodation in home comfort in rooms for 1-2 people
