New Zealand - Aotearoa
Land of the long white cloud
New Zealand is known for its stunning natural scenery, from mountains, to lakes and coastlines. New Zealanders (informally known as Kiwis) are down-to-earth and friendly, and our lifestyle is relaxed, with a passion for the outdoors. ‘Kiwi ingenuity’ helps this small country achieve big things. With a history of Māori, European, Pacific Island and Asian cultures, New Zealand has become a cultural melting-pot. Over three-quarters of the population live in the North Island, with one-third living in Auckland. The other main cities of Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin are where the majority of the remaining Kiwis dwell.
With a population of four million people, New Zealand is one of the least crowded countries in the world. We offer convenience, opportunities and excitement, while remaining friendly, peaceful and safe.
You can enjoy outdoor pursuits like bungy-jumping, kayaking, surfing, skiing and hiking, and have access to the arts, cultural pursuits and modern technology - it’s all right on your doorstep! Enjoy your studies at Otago Polytechnic and experience a great lifestyle!
