Wellington is New Zealand’s capital and one of its main academic hubs. With world-class universities like Victoria University of Wellington and the University of Otago, it’s home to a diverse mix of domestic and international students.

With a population of just over 200,000, it’s a safe and affordable place to live while still offering plenty of education and career opportunities. Known for its colourful arts scene and friendly locals, students from all over the world feel at home in Wellington.
