The New Zealand guide

Latest articles

Auckland is consistently rated as having one of the highest qualities of life in the world and boasts two top-rated universities, bringing it in at number 28 for best places to study in QS Top University’s world ranking system.

Whether you want to go to university, attend a polytechnic or vocational school, learn English, or take part in a foreign exchange student programme, New Zealand has an option to suit your needs. The first step to studying in New Zealand is to explore these educational options and decide which works best for you. You may want to use an education agent to assist you with all of the possibilities.

If you’re looking to study in a dramatic location filled with natural beauty and fun experiences, then Christchurch on New Zealand’s iconic South Island is worth your consideration.

From the work culture to CV format, working in New Zealand may be slightly different to your home country, but finding and getting along in a job is easy to do with a little support and guidance.

New Zealand is ranked as one of the best countries in the world to start a business, and many start-up companies and inventions have Kiwi origins. If you also have the heart of an entrepreneur, then you may want to set up your business in a country that fosters that energy. As an expat, it isn’t quite as simple as flying over and getting started – you will need a visa to work in New Zealand, even in a self-employed capacity, but if you have a good idea that will boost the economy, and financial investment, then you will likely be welcome.

This is a blog by a Scottish woman (who is actually half English, half Polish) who is married to a Swede, lived in Denmark for 8 years and who is now moving to a new life in New Zealand. I hope to cover various aspects of the move and my new life!
