New Zealanders (Kiwis) are incredibly friendly people who love welcoming students like you to experience their wonderful island in the South Pacific. New Zealand currently ranks number four on the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), which measures how students learn essentials like reading, mathematics and science. This ranking shows New Zealand has an internationally advanced schooling system which is far ahead of German schools.
The choices for recreational activities are vast, interesting and affordable - in other words, you're bound to have a great time! The longest distance to the coast from anywhere in New Zealand is 130km. This explains why the sea and the beach are an essential part of the lifestyle here.
You are guaranteed to connect with many students in your age group, and will fill your time with plenty of sunshine, fun adventures, and learning far away from home in a beautiful and safe environment.
An exchange to New Zealand is an incredibly exciting, significant life experience for your child. However, we understand that there might be some anxious parents out there. As parents ourselves, we completely understand how important it is for family back home in Germany to know that the well-being, comfort and learning of all our students is taken care of at all times during their stay in New Zealand.
We stay in touch regularly and personally with your child. At the same time we are available for you at all times, and will report back frequently with updates on how your child is getting on. We provide this important service without extra administration costs or fees.
