Student experiences

Subtropical Northland is only two hours’ drive north of Auckland. Renowned for spectacular coastlines, marine reserves and kauri forests - the natural landscape is our speciality...

  • Northland is the location of the first signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, New Zealand’s founding document, in 1840. One-third of Northland’s population identify as Māori, and the area is rich in Māori culture and historic places.
  • As New Zealand’s subtropical region, Northland does not experience snow or sub-zero temperatures, so take advantage of the sunny weather to explore Northland’s superb outdoors.
  • In Northland, you’re never more than 40km from the coast, and you’ll have a seemingly endless choice of white sandy beaches, coves and harbours to discover. You can try big-game fishing, scuba dive in the world’s largest sea cave, explore the 144 islands in the Bay of Islands or swim with bottlenose dolphins.

Northland attracts students from across the country and around the globe. Studying in Northland is an exciting engaging and rewarding experience.
