Some students come to New Zealand for only a short time with different goals – to learn, grow, travel and experience a new culture. These students often choose different subjects like Dance, Construction or Photography and enjoy participating in a range of sports and activities. We work closely with some carefully chosen tour companies and help our students find the right trips for their weekends and holidays so they happy an opportunity to see as much of New Zealand as they can.
