New Zealand is the natural home for fresh ideas.
Young and free of constricting traditions, New Zealand has learned to be self-reliant and to forge its own way in the world. New Zealand’s youth and fresh outlook make it the natural home for fresh ideas.
This innovative thinking is reflected in the way we teach and learn. Our education system encourages inventive thinking and teaching techniques that reach far beyond traditional rote learning.
Our innovative approach to learning – and esteemed qualifications - are highly valued by the world’s business and community leaders.
New Zealanders who embody this inventive spirit include Bert Munro – who broke world speed records on an Indian motorbike he had modified in his garage, Richard Taylor – whose Weta Workshop created the stunning visual effects in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, and Alan MacDiarmid – winner of the Nobel Prize in chemistry.
