New Zealand is gaining a lot of attention from international students from all corners of the world. English speaking citizens, beautiful countryside and surroundings make the country a very appealing destination to many students. But why study in New Zealand? There is so much more that the country offers international students than just scenery and the countryside.
Following the release of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, New Zealand saw a jump in popularity with international students. And for good reason: New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and its people are famous for their kindness and willingness to accommodate all kinds of visitors. International students can experience every from traditional Maori arts, professional theatre companies, orchestras, and opera, to sports such as skiing, snowboarding, and kayaking.
For those students who opt to study in New Zealand, the healthcare in New Zealand is similar to the UK, with a public healthcare system that is heavily subsidized by the government and then private medical facilities for those that choose to seek treatment privately. For New Zealand citizens (and a few reciprocal countries like the UK) healthcare is free through the national system with only small copays, however international students will need to purchase health insurance in New Zealand as they are not covered under the national healthcare system.
It is therefore strongly recommended that you purchase coverage before you travel - this will avoid any issues such as travel delays (for which some insurance plans will cover you) or if you get sick or injured when you arrive.
