Students in New Zealand

Silhouette of new Zealand

The New Zealand educational system has become in recent years one of the most advanced in the world. Located at the top of the PISA report (Programme for International Student Assessment), it is an example of cultural integration for its effort to recover and preserve the Maori culture, and of innovation for its promotion of pedagogical flexibility and creativity.

The students will be with local homestay families, and they will have a youth leadership program to make sure the experience is educational, fun, and safe.

Programa overview

The duration of the program is from 3 to 4 weeks and includes:

  • Weekly English classes at NZLC (New Zealand Language Centres)

  • Homestay with a local family

  • After-class activities from Monday to Friday

  • Youth Leadership Program

  • Personalized care from Abroad Global Charitable trust

Youth Leadership Program 

Our exclusive Youth Leadership Program is designed to enable students to develop essential 21st-century skills.

Additional skills are developed through weekly student-centred projects. Youth have authentic opportunities to communicate, research a problem, provide a solution, and publicly present what they have learned. Students then evaluate and reflect on the process, identifying what they have learned and what more they could do to improve.
