Choose between the North Island and the South Island

CAMPS International works with over 100 New Zealand state and private schools in the North and South Islands. Every school has a very diverse range of subjects. In order to assist you in selecting a school, it is important to be clear about your own wishes and priorities in advance.

Which sports do you want to continue playing in New Zealand and which ones would you like to learn? Do you prefer being close to the beach or the mountains? Do you want to get to know New Zealand's small-town life or do you prefer life in a big city? Of course, we would be happy to advise you on your search for the right school!

Your Host Family

Kiwis, as New Zealanders call themselves, are very open-minded and friendly people. International students are welcomed here with open arms and bring a piece of the world directly to the homes of host families. New Zealanders are curious about other cultures and countries and want to learn more about the history, life, and traditions of your home.

Whether you are in the city or in the country, you will quickly notice that the love of nature and sports plays a major role in most Kiwi families. Let yourself be surprised – maybe your new family will take you camping, skiing or bungee jumping!

Your School in New Zealand

New Zealand has a comprehensive school system that goes up to the 13th grade, in which all students learn together. The unity between students of all ages is very strong and the attachment of students to their school often lasts a lifetime. In addition to mixed schools, there are numerous all-girls and all-boys schools in New Zealand that have a long tradition and are often among the most prestigious schools in the country.

The size of the schools varies between 400 and 2,000 students. An interesting specialty of New Zealand schools is the Outdoor Education course. Here you learn things such as building snow huts or discover New Zealand's nature on a canoe trip over several days. The mix of academic subjects and outdoor learning makes school in New Zealand really fun!

New Zealand schools are also known for the extremely good and individual support of international students.
