New Zealand is an English speaking country, although we have people from many different nationalities- basic English at least is a requirement to live here successfully.
The native people of New Zealand are Maori. They are a proud people with ancient customs and a culture which permeates New Zealand society. One example of this is the haka, a Maori war dance, which is commonly performed by our national rugby team, the All Blacks, before each game.
New Zealand has a thriving dairy industry a (both in terms of cows and corner stores). Agriculture is our main industry, and our country is covered in arable farmland.
Many of the biggest movies of the past 10 years were produced in New Zealand, with the digital animation being done by the Weta Workshop (Lord of the Rings, Avatar, and The Hobbit).
New Zealand is actively seeking designers and ICT professionals to fill the shortage in our labour market.
If you are thinking about coming to New Zealand for study, please consider the skills we need in New Zealand before choosing your course. For example, a Diploma in Management is unlikely to get you on a pathway to a high level skilled job. You could do research or consult a lawyer/licensed advisor on the best course for you.
