Its scenery sets it apart from the rest of the world while its people have a reputation for friendliness, strength and independence. There is abundant beauty and diversity in scenery, lifestyle and culture. From rolling green farmlands to barren volcanic desert areas, from golden beaches with clear blue water to majestic snow covered mountains, New Zealand offers a sample of every possible landscape within a relatively small country.
New Zealand is a Parliamentary democracy, offering a safe political environment for international students and visitors. It has a population of only 3.8 million and is similar in size to the United Kingdom or Japan.
