Study in New Zealand
With warm, peaceful islands in the north, majestic, rugged mountains in the south, and any number of variations in between, New Zealand is a country not quite like any other. The nation is comprised of two main islands, the North Island and the South Island, as well as several smaller islands, all of which are home to singular wildlife, varied cultures, and friendly people. The striking landscapes that have inspired filmmakers have also captured the imaginations of tourist, backpackers, adventure seekers, and students.
While Europeans did not arrive in New Zealand until the middle of the nineteenth century, the country has been home to the Polynesian Maori people for over 1,000 years. When the British arrived in 1840, the Maori chieftains agreed to the terms of the Treaty of Waitangi, which allowed them to retain territorial rights while giving Queen Victoria sovereignty. Despite strained relationships historically between the United Kingdom and the Maori people, Maori culture retains a significant presence alongside British, Pacific Island, and other international influences within the country.
