  • World class setting

    Queenstown is New Zealand’s premium destination for education, offering world class educational opportunities through a range of education providers, international connectivity and a unique local student lifestyle.

  • Safe, clean & pristine

    Queenstown has clean fresh air, a strong sense of community and is far from the hustle and bustle and higher crime rates associated with larger cities. There are people from over 40 different nationalities who call Queenstown home, and the multi cultural nature of Queenstown allows for a global village feel in a stunning location. 

  • Exciting & dynamic lifestyle

    Queenstown’s magnificent natural setting offers endless activities for students and visiting family. Options such as jet boating, golf, exploring the vast local trail network by mountain  bike or by foot, skiing and snowboarding or joining one of the many local sports clubs that are available to you, resulting in a lifestyle like no other in New Zealand. Queenstown provides the ultimate student experience.

  • Warm & Welcoming

    A large, permanent international population means we have the cultural awareness of a much larger centre, with the international cuisine to match. This international feel and acceptance of other cultures creates a welcoming environment for international students.

  • International hub

    A destination with global connectivity. Queenstown International Airport has undergone almost constant expansion over the past 10 years. During peak seasons Queenstown becomes one of New Zealand’s busiest international airports. Ultrafast fibre internet connectivity in Queenstown and free WiFi in the central business district connects you to the world instantly.

  • Work & career opportunities

    With an established education industry in Queenstown there is already a range of courses on offer. Being a tourism based centre there are plenty of employment opportunities for you whilst you study. Post-graduate employment options are outstanding, with a very  high percentage of graduates finding work in their field of study, or continuing on to further study both in New Zealand and internationally.

Welcome

As mayor of Queenstown I am delighted you are exploring what Study Queenstown has to offer international students. I am confident you will find Queenstown to be an ideal educational destination with our combination of a world class location, safe pristine environment, and an exciting and vibrant lifestyle.

Queenstown is a stunning location that has been rated as Australasia’s leading destination (World Travel Awards) and New Zealand’s number one destination (Trip Advisor), in addition to New Zealand being the most socially advanced country in the world (The Social Progress Imperative). With this in mind, I invite you to research this prospectus for the institution and course that will meet your education goals and lead to exciting career opportunities.

Whether you are studying English, secondary school education, higher level vocational training,  or a specific graduate qualification, why not make the Queenstown region your classroom. It is also a place where students can form lifelong friendships with their peers, creating strong memories of life in the Wakatipu basin, and also create strong international networks as they learn with people from all over the world.

With a warm and welcoming international study environment, we are committed to ensuring all students enjoy their time in this beautiful part of the world. The accessibility of our international airport, variety of accommodation options, a compact town centre, and options for any budget make Queenstown an ideal study location.
