Broad opportunities for study and research
The eight institutions that make up the university system in New Zealand are located across the two main islands, the North and the South. This distribution gives students a chance to pursue opportunities in study and culture. Although all the universities offer degrees in the arts, business, science, each college also has its own niche and distinct courses to offer.
Easy entry requirements
Unlike many other countries, New Zealand universities do not have a lot of competition to get admitted for a university degree. That is because the New Zealand government has invested heavily in higher education over the years. Because of that New Zealand universities have more capacity than the number of students. Students with moderate grades can get entry to most Bachelor degree programs easily. Hence the entry requirements are minimal compared to most of the top universities in the world.
New Zealand has comparatively low cost of living, food easily available at reasonable prices and a wide variety of student accommodation options. Public transport is also moderately priced, offering easy access to rivers, lakes, forests and beaches for the recreational opportunities they provide.
A Beautiful Country
New Zealand is renowned for its naturally beautiful landscapes and the adventure activities they offer. The best thing is that all this is easily accessible from all eight universities of the country. Even though you will be there as a student, if you ever want to spend weekends and holidays exploring the country, you will have endless options to do so in however way you want. New Zealand offers great options for adventure sports and hiking etc.
