Peaceful Country to Live & Study
New Zealand is home to internationally prestigious, research-led universities, many of which are ranked among the best in the world. Universities undertake pioneering research in many fields, and their discoveries and academics are in demand by organisations ranging from NATO to NASA. Research excellence is a key to ensure quality undergraduate and postgraduate opportunities, as discoveries and knowledge filter down to inform all levels of university teaching.
The New Zealand education system is based on the British model and a New Zealand university qualification is recognised all over the world as being the direct equivalent of a qualification from a UK university. The strong similarities and recognition between the university systems in the UK and New Zealand is not just reassuring; it is a key if you are hoping to study a professional degree–such as veterinary science, nursing, engineering, medicine or social work overseas.
