Study Abroad Program New Zealand
in New Zealand as a student exchange is a journey through time as well
as distance. The landscape, the country towns, drivers who wave on the
back roads, and even the radio stations come from a cleaner, greener,
But the scenery is the real attraction. Covering an area about the same
size as the United Kingdom, New Zealand has fjords, glaciers, geysers,
subtropical rain forests, surf beaches, trout streams, forest-rimmed
lakes, alpine meadows, and 200 mountain peaks that measure more than
2,500 meters (8,200 feet).
New Zealand is divided into two main islands: North Island, home to
most of the country's 3,552,000 people, and South Island. A crucial
consideration for visitors is how to divide their time between these
two islands. New Zealand has spectacular scenery throughout the country;
but while the North Island often resembles a manicured golf course,
the South Island is wild, majestic, and exhilarating. If you travel
to New Zealand in search of adventure, then your itinerary should be
focused on the South Island.
New Zealand is a student
travel destination that is ideal, presenting the opportunity to experience
a variety of settings as an international study abroad destination.
Remember that seasons in New Zealand are the reverse of those in the
Northern Hemisphere. If you arrive in mid-year you can expect chilly
weather and snow-covered mountains on both islands.
