New Zealand universities have gone to great lengths to ensure international students are comfortable and well taken care of when they decide to pursue a New Zealand academic programme.
International students feel at home in New Zealand universities with the extensive support available.
Proudly recognised as one of the world’s best modern universities, Auckland University of Technology has an extensive guide on preparing for the move abroad, including tips on immigration processes, what can and cannot be brought into the country, finding accommodation and estimating student living costs in New Zealand. The university’s international student services also assist students in seeking work and study options as well as immigration and career advice after the completion of studies.
Known for being New Zealand’s leading research university, The University of Auckland has created the AUSA Buddy Programme that helps international students ease into the Kiwi culture. New international students are paired with existing UOA students who share common interests or study majors. This programme differs from UniGuides, where students are taught life hacks and given specific information on how to settle down in Auckland and New Zealand as a whole.
Fulfilling student life – there’s something for everybody
Among the top priorities for New Zealand universities is to provide students with a holistic lifestyle experience, be it in education or co-curricular activities.
The University of Otago encourages students to be passionate about the things that interest them as they pursue academic excellence. With over 160 clubs and societies such as the anime club, animal aquatic plant ecological society (AAPES), cancer core and more, students are able to experience an unmatched balance of rigour and fun during their time at university. Sports represents another great avenue for local and international students to mingle.
Lincoln University is well known for its sports facilities and sporting achievements. Focusing on enhancing lives and growing the future by offering diverse learning options, Lincoln University also offers sports scholarships for aspiring athletes.

Victoria University of Wellington has an international student summer support programme that not only gives financial, mentoring and budgeting advice but also helps international students come up with activities to do during their summer break. This programme helps students meet new people, develop skills and prepare for the following year subjects through events, social activities such as picking your own berries, photo competitions and more.
Manaakitanga – Respecting, being generous and caring for the community.
New Zealanders take great pride in their Maori culture and are always eager to share it. Students will find ample opportunities to take part in cultural festivals and events across the eight universities.
University of Canterbury has exciting events happening all year round to keep their students entertained. There is also a formal celebration of Matariki, a festival marking the start of the Maori New Year. The week-long celebration is aimed at enhancing the mana Motuhake (self – determination/discipline) of Maori through a series of events, lessons and celebration that includes hakari (feast), mara kai (gardening for food) workshop, hikoi (walk), toiora (yoga) and a formal dinner.
The University of Waikato emphasises the importance of revitalising the Maori language and culture through events and festivals such as Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori and Kingitanga Day. Kingitanga Day, also known as the Maori King Movement, aims at uniting the Maori tribes across the land under a single sovereign. It is now a day where university staff and students come together to showcase a myriad of activities including performances that focus on the richness of the Maori tribes.
Inspired by its Maori name Te Kunenga Ki Purehuroa which means learning is forever, from inception to infinity, Massey University is New Zealand’s national university. As a proud sponsor of Polyfest, the largest Pacific dance festival in the world. It is an important event that encourages indigenous students to pursue further studies while providing a platform to showcase Maori culture on stage.
