Exchange year in New Zealand

In New Zealand every day is different. The country has countless natural parks, each one enormously different from the other. Volcanos, geysers, virgin forests, rugged coasts, golden beaches, fjords and glaciers. What can’t be found there? Of course, there are other countries with equally  stunning nature, but in a relatively small area, this place is quite unique.

New Zealanders are known as Kiwis and are incredibly, friendly, welcoming and super relaxed. They offer immediate help if you need to find an address, for example, and they are very open to chatting so its easy to have a conversation with them.

High School in New Zealand

A year of Baccalaureate in New Zealand offers you the opportunity to expand your knowledge of the English language while exploring this beautiful country. New Zealand schools also organise many extracurricular activities for their students.

Education in New Zealand is very good. The school year begins in February and ends in November/December and is divided into 4 “quarters”. Students study between 5 and 6 subjects, some of which are compulsory and others you can choose such as tourism, photography and design. In each “quarter” you can select new additional subjects. There will be many international students in your high school and it is very likely that you will have to wear a uniform. That way you won’t have to worry about what to wear in the mornings. 

Sport and leisure

The schools tend to offer a wide range of sports that you can choose from. Some examples are softball, rowing, table tennis, hockey, basketball, rugby, athletics, golf and many more.  
In addition, outside school you will have the opportunity to join sports clubs or youth clubs. In fact all outdoor sports are possible and the schools often take their students into the countryside to do fun activities outdoors in the nature. Each region has its own flora and fauna, from rivers to mountains, glaciers and even volcanoes. 

Welcome Camp

The Auckland camp is the ideal start of your New Zealand adventure. You will visit several highlights, such as the Sky Tower, the Auckland Museum, a Maori show and Mount Eden.

Programmes

In New Zealand we have two different programs to choose from. In all programs, you will be supervised by a local coordinator and you will live with a host family. Are you going to choose a full school year programme or would you prefer a shorter stay? Everything is possible with into! Check the options below.

Nueva Zelanda Classic

In the Classic program, most of our students will live in quiet, small cities or rural areas. Here you will interact with the local people right away and you will quickly feel at home.

Host families are proud of their country and want to show others their own way of life. That is the reason why they open their doors to an exchange student and welcome him into his family with great affection.

 

New Zealand Select

 

In the select program you can choose your school from three different options.

You can choose a school according to its location, what it offers in terms of subjects, sports or other activities or according to its size. You can choose from the following schools

– Manawatu College in Foxton (Northern New Zealand)

– Cullinane College in Whanganui (Northern New Zealand)

– Gore High School in Gore (Southern South)
