Why New Zealand Should Top Your Study Abroad Wishlist

Go Overseas
Topic Expert

Go Overseas was started with the simple idea of creating a centralized website to provide the resources required for meaningful travel abroad.

For a small country, New Zealand has a lot going for it.

Ask anyone who's visited New Zealand -- whether to study abroad or just to travel around the countryside -- and they'll tell you it's a country of stunning scenery, welcoming people, delicious food, and fascinating culture.

So why isn't New Zealand at the top of your list to study abroad?

Maybe you've considered New Zealand as a possible study abroad destination, and aren't quite sure if it's the right fit for you. We've got a great reason to consider New Zealand -- and tons of resources to show you why you'll have an unforgettable semester (or year) abroad in New Zealand.
