Life in New Zealand
New Zealand is consistently ranked as one of the top countries in the world for quality of living by internationally respected surveys.
Famous for its abundant natural beauty and spectacular landscapes, New Zealand offers everything from sandy beaches and forests to volcanoes, ski fields and glaciers.
There is lots to see and do in New Zealand with popular pursuits including outdoor adventures ranging from skiing in Queenstown to hiking and camping in our beautiful national and regional parks.
New Zealand is home to people from all around the world, resulting in a diverse multicultural population of 4.4 million. Kiwi culture has been largely influenced by both European principles and indigenous Māori culture.
Today the rich Māori culture and language are an integral part of New Zealand life.
Auckland is in the North Island of New Zealand and it’s the largest and most populous city in the country. With a population of 1,413,700 people, Auckland constitutes 31 percent of the country's population.
Imagine an urban environment where everyone lives within half an hour of beautiful beaches, hiking trails and a dozen enchanting holiday islands. Add a sunny climate, a background rhythm of Polynesian culture and a passion for outstanding food, wine and shopping, and you’re beginning to get the picture of Auckland, New Zealand. Unsurprisingly, Auckland is the most popular destination in New Zealand for international students.
Auckland has been named as the third most liveable city in the world for the past two years by the Mercer Quality of Living Survey. The survey ranks cities on factors such as culture and environment, political stability, safety, infrastructure and ease of doing business.
Auckland is home to many cultures. The majority of inhabitants claim European (predominantly British and/or Irish) descent, but substantial Māori, Pacific Island, and Asian communities exist as well. Auckland has the largest Polynesian population of any city in the world and a higher proportion of people of Asian origin than the rest of New Zealand. Ethnic groups from all corners of the world have a presence in Auckland, making it by far the country's most cosmopolitan city.
New Zealand Tertiary College’s Auckland Campus is located in Greenlane, a central city suburb about 6km from the city centre with train and bus stops close by.

Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, and the country's third-most populated city with 341,469 people. It lies one third of the way down the South Island's East Coast, just north of Banks Peninsula. Christchurch is the oldest established city in New Zealand and the second most popular destination for international students in New Zealand.
Christchurch is a distinctly English city, however it contains various European elements, with strong Gothic Revival architecture. As early settlers of New Zealand, Māori culture is also prevalent in the city which features many public open spaces and parks, rivers, and dining options in the city centre and surrounding suburbs.
There is nowhere else in the world where, within two hours of an international airport, you can ski at a world-class alpine resort, play golf, bungy jump, raft, mountain bike, hot-air balloon, wind surf, whale watch and visit internationally-acclaimed wineries and gardens.
New Zealand Tertiary College’s Christchurch Campus is located in the suburb of Papanui situated 5km northwest of the city centre and is easily accessible by bus.
