Why Aotearoa New Zealand?

A small island nation located in the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand is famous for its breathtaking scenery, indigenous Māori culture and adrenaline-pumping adventure activities.

New Zealand is a country so diverse and so beautiful that there’s no wonder why it plants itself on the top of many travellers’ to-do lists. There’s a little something for everyone, from the great walks to the mountains, the hot springs to the hobbits and the beaches to the lakes.

If you’re considering Middle Earth (aka New Zealand) as your next study tour destination, it may be a long way from home, but there are few places in the world you can compare with what you will see here.

Totally authentic tours designed and hosted by born and bred Kiwis

“I was extremely impressed with Global Engagement’s work on this program. From providing expert instructors in a variety of subject areas, to arranging wonderful outdoor experiences in the landscapes of New Zealand, to organizing opportunities for cultural immersion, the Global Engagement put together an amazing and meaningful experience.”

“The whole IGENZ team was amazing, caring, and knowledgeable. They worked hard to make sure we had the best experience possible and did so much work behind the scenes so that it all flowed easily. They are very kind and hardworking people. They showed genuine care for our well-being and an interest in who we are as people”.
