New Zealand may only be known as “Australia’s younger sibling”, with their almost identical flags and adorable accents. But it still is a place you should seriously consider for your international degree.
New Zealand isn’t famous only for its Lord of the Rings-landscapes. It also gave us great people like Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man who reached the peak of Mount Everest; Sir Ernest Rutherford, the first scientist who split the atom; and, last but not least, pop-singer Lorde.
Yes, there are other people between great scientists and pop singers. But before we get there, we should cover all you need to know about New Zealand’s universities and student lifestyle.
Who wouldn’t wish to study in the origin place of elves, dwarves, and hobbits?
Besides this awesome location, you can always count on their educational system: despite having only 8 universities, one of them is ranked in top 100 by QS World University Rankings.
Also, being the less-deadly version of Australia, New Zealand offers students a great nightlife, combined with great landscapes and polite people – all without the danger of being bitten by spiders bigger than your fist.
Studying in New Zealand is affordable compared to a lot of other developed countries. Credit for that goes to the competitive tuition fees and a low cost of living.
