New Zealand is a fantastic place to live, the climate is temperate, services are reliable, facilities are second to none and the education system is outstanding.
New Zealand was founded on the concept of equality. Political history focused on state socialism. All residents have access to almost free healthcare and almost free education. Education is totally free up to tertiary level, and providing High School the student’s academic standards are good enough, everyone has access to tertiary education. Residents are entitled to student loans to fund their tertiary/trade education. New Zealand has arguably the best education and healthcare system in the world.
In the biggest city, you are never more than 10 minutes drive to a beach or 30 minutes to the native forests that surround Auckland. Just as in most cities, there is an exodus from down town at the end of the working day and on weekends, to enjoy sport, swimming, bathing, bushwalking and picnics.
There are facilities for almost every kind of educational, sporting and recreational requirement, imaginable. NZ is surrounded by sea so it is no wonder most of the residents are great sailors, both in the competitive and in the recreational sense; boating of all sorts is popular, accessible and inexpensive; as is fishing (river and sea) and hunting.
We look forward in seeing you become Registered Nurses in New Zealand en route to the Permanent Residencies of your whole family.
