Immerse yourself in the “Kiwi” culture of this magical island nation.
Playing beach volleyball after school and watching rugby matches on the weekends. Going on bike rides and taking a dip in the ocean. Walking barefoot through town and drinking coffee in a local café. It’s all part of the laid-back lifestyle in this magical island nation. Before long, you’ll pick up the local Kiwi slang, as well as M��ori words and expressions. Five days a week, you’ll take classes (taught in English) for eight hours a day at a local public or private high school with your New Zealander peers. Rest assured, you’ll still have plenty of time to volunteer, do extracurricular sports and activities, or just chill on the beach. When you study abroad with CIEE, you choose your school, subjects, sports, and where in the country you want to live. You can decide to live and study in a big city, near the beach, or on the mountains. School courses can include deep sea diving, mountain biking, and climbing. If it’s important to you to have an influence on certain parts of your time as an exchange student, this is the program for you!
