INTRODUCTION OF NEW ZEALAND

Campuses are very international with students from all corners of the globe, studying and socialising together. And where do they come from? – Europe, USA, Asia, United Kingdom, South America, India, Australia, The Pacific and smaller numbers from many other countries.
 
The people were formerly a mix of predominantly European and Pacific races. However, in more recent times, migration has been encouraged from many countries resulting in an exciting international community with a high tolerance of, and interest in, each other’ cultures. With a total population of only 4.43 million there is a feeling of space and freedom.
 
The country is a land of great contrasts. New Zealand is a small island nation with a temperate climate. You are never more than a few hours away from the sea. In fact all of the larger cities are on the coastline, with vistas of blue seas and green hills. Further inland are the mountains, the backbone of the two major islands (North and South Island) with activities like tramping all year round and skiing for up to six months of the year.
 
You may choose to study in a modern city with the shopping, multicultural restaurants, night clubs, live theatre, art galleries, museums, sports stadiums and all the hustle and bustle. Or perhaps you prefer the slower pace of the rural areas, where you’ll find supportive communities, and access to the farmlands and orchards. Many of the key tourist attractions are found in these rural areas, so the pace need not be slow. You may choose to shoot the rapids, jet-boat through narrow gorges, bungy jump from bridges high above gushing waters, explore the forests, gaze at bubbling mud pools or wonder at the geysers. Then there’s the paragliding, windsurfing, mountain biking, horse-riding, fishing, kayaking, four-wheel driving and so much more.

Academic Session

How long is a term in college? A trimester system divides the academic year into three terms which can be as short as eight weeks or as long as 16 weeks each. A quarter system divides the academic year into four terms, up to 12 weeks each, and generally counts the summer as one of the terms.

How long is the academic year? It divides the academic year into four quarters, each of which is usually 12 weeks long. Three of the four quarters (Fall, Winter, and Spring, operating from September until June or from August until May) are thus equivalent to two 18-week semesters.

What is the winter semester? The German academic year is divided into two semesters: the summer semester starts in April and ends in September and the winter semester runs from October to March.

SECONDARY EDUCATION IN NEW ZEALAND

Students commence secondary education (Years 9 – 13) at approximately 13 years of age. They may choose to study at either a state or private school.
