Why chose Ignite Colleges

Why New Zealand?

New Zealand is a favourite destination for international students from all over the world - and it’s not hard to see why.

It is politically stable, affordable, with a top-quality education system - and it’s one of the safest countries on the planet. In New Zealand unrivalled natural beauty sits side by side with a thriving economy, in a friendly melting pot of vibrant cultures. People of all nationalities are welcomed here, and encouraged to innovate, inspire and strive to reach their full potential.


New Zealand’s largest and most cosmopolitan city has a population of around 1.5 million, and is regularly ranked as one of the top places in the world to live and study. As well as exceptional educational facilities, you have world class restaurants, bars and entertainment, plus your pick of adrenalin-pumping outdoor activities, from yachting and surfing, to hiking and horse riding. Auckland is New Zealand’s economic hub, and with that comes a plethora of job opportunities for locals and international students alike. You can work while you study and gain valuable industry experience as you build your skills and grow your career.
