Schools we work with

We place students in a range of locations in both islands – North and South - from small towns to big cities; from coastal areas to skiing mountains to accommodate the students interests. Click on either the North or South Island below, to see a listing of cities and schools where we have placement programmes.

North Island Schools

The North Island is more populated than the South Island with its coastal hugging cities and large harbors creating a more user friendly marine playground. The north of the North Island is sub-tropical in summer with lots of sunshine and warm ocean currents rich in marine life creating spectacular diving, snorkeling and fishing. There are many long white sand beaches that are renowned for being “The most beautiful and uncrowded beaches in the world”. There are more Maori in the north and Auckland is the largest Polynesian city in the world.
