Studying and living in New Zealand for Chinese
This Guide aims to help better prepare you for life and
study in New Zealand. It should help answer any
questions you may have before you leave, when you arrive
or after you have been in New Zealand a while.
Each year many students come to study and live in New
Zealand. Living and studying in a new country away from
friends and family can be exciting and scary at the same
time. There will be lots for you to learn!
This Guide contains lots of useful and practical
information for day to day living in New Zealand. It
also contains information that you may find helpful if
you encounter a problem or difficulty. When reading
through this Guide, you could be forgiven for thinking
international student life in New Zealand is fraught
with problems and difficulties! Please remember that
most students enjoy their stay in New Zealand and
encounter few problems, and go home with memories they
will cherish for a lifetime. However, if you do come
across any difficulties it is not always easy to know
how to deal with them or what support is available, and
that is where this Guide aims to help.
We hope you have a fantastic time living and studying in

accessing support to assist in dealing with them."
