Two Worlds United Programs in New Zealand for High School students
in New Zealand 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 an ideal student destination. Home stays and farm stays provide an ideal
opportunity for international students to experience life in New Zealand.
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.
