Studying in New ZealandNew Zealand lies midway between the equator and the South Pole, separated from the rest of the world. The North Island has a Mediterranean climate, while on the South Island it is somewhat cooler. The country's nature is one of the cleanest you can find in the world. The majority of New Zealand's 4 million inhabitants are of European origin, while 15% represent the indigenous people - the Maoris - whose culture shines through in society. The "Kiwis", the unofficial nickname of the locals, are very friendly towards foreigners, and international students are always welcomed.
