Study Abroad in New Zealand
Why New Zealand?
For sheer natural beauty, no country can compete with New Zealand—or Aotearoa, as it’s called in the native Maori language. The mountains, coasts, and forests make an ideal setting for students eager to explore the outdoors. World Endeavors students will find a diverse culture here, influenced by English settlement, native cultures, and recent immigration from Asian countries. As a group, New Zealanders take a laid-back approach to life, and the country has a reputation as one of the safest places in the world to live. Since it’s also an English-speaking country, students traveling to New Zealand will find it easy to become part of university life while having an unforgettable study abroad adventure.
