Why study in New Zealand?

t is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult. – Seneca

Whether you want to study abroad for an adventure or for learning English, you have to dare to take that experience by the reigns and in order to make the most out of it.  Howick College in the eastern suburbs of Auckland, New Zealand, is the best place to do this.

The top three invaluable reasons for studying abroad include:

  1. Learning English: immersing yourself in another language is the best way to learn it. The language tutors at Howick College will offer you great opportunities to hone your skills.
  2. Stand out from the crowd when getting a job: Employers recognise that people who have lived and studied away from home are more mature, self sufficient and have a better understanding of other cultures.  Studying abroad creates independent young adults who are self-assured and worldly.
  3. Understand a different way of life:  Living abroad isn’t always easy; it pushes us out of our comfort zone but once we adjust, the rewards are endless.  We create a deep connection with a second home and find out that we’re all the same really.

New Zealand vs. Other English speaking countries

One of the best places to learn English in the world:  New Zealand is rated fourth overall in the OECD education standard in reading, maths and science, second in the English speaking countries only behind Canada which teaches in both French and English simultaneously.  Therefore if your aim is to focus and improve your English then New Zealand is one of the best places to do it.

One of the best lifestyles in the world: New Zealand is all round a fantastic place for students.  Auckland is a multi-cultural metropolis that caters for all sorts of people from different backgrounds.  The weather is mild all year round with an average temperature of 24 degrees in summer and 15 degrees in winter.  New Zealand has also been rated the least corrupt country in the world and has the lowest crime rate, making it a safe and pleasant country to live in.

Howick College embodies all the best assets of living in New Zealand.  Located in the eastern suburbs of Auckland, just a stone’s throw from the beach, shopping centres and public transport, it offers everything that a student needs.  The students and staff at Howick College truly epitomise the Kiwi spirit of friendliness and creative leadership and ingenuity.

A legacy of leadership and ambition: New Zealand has become world-renowned for its leadership on tough issues and creative ambition.  It was the first country in the world to give women the vote and sacrificed its alliance with Australia and the United States in ANZUS when it stood up for its values in refusing nuclear ships into its harbours.  World famous New Zealanders include Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to reach the summit of Mt Everest, and Sir Ernest Rutherford, the first to split the atom.

Howick College aims to cultivate students that embody this spirit of leadership and ambition.
