Why Study in New Zealand
New Zealand is a country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean consisting of 2 main islands, both marked by volcanoes and glaciation. Capital Wellington, on the North Island, is home to Te Papa Tongarewa, the expansive national musseum. Wellington’s dramatic Mt. Victoria, along with the South Island’s Fiordland and Southern Lakes, stood in for mythical Middle Earth in Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” films.
New Zealand is a unique country, with gorgeous scenery and excellent study opportunities. It’s a safe and welcoming community with a world-class reputation for cutting-edge research and a creative destination for internal students.
New Zealand has a progressive education system which has state of art facilities where its qualifications are internationally recognized and a wide range of study opportunities, including state-administered primary, secondary schools, universities, polytechnics, colleges of education and private training establishments.
Smooth Entry Requirements
Unlike the situation in the UK and countries, New Zealand does not have massive competition to enter the first year of a university degree. This is because the New Zealand government has invested heavily in university education over the years. As a result, New Zealand has more capacity than it has students. Good students with moderate grades can gain entry to most Bachelors degree programs without any problems. Therefore, entry requirements are moderate compared with most of the top universities in the UK
