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.
Live in Hamilton, New Zealand
Hamilton is home to a lush landscape that appeals to nature lovers of all kinds, with opportunities to climb mountains, explore dazzling underground caves, and enjoy both the South Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea. But it’s not just a nature preserve. Hamilton City is a thriving university town, with an excellent art and history museum, gorgeous botanic gardens, and a sophisticated array of restaurants, bars, shops, and art galleries. Students and academics travel here from around New Zealand and the world, making for a cosmopolitan local culture. It’s an ideal setting for studying, exploring, making new friends, and delving into the culture of New Zealand.
