Three reasons why studying tourism in New Zealand is amazingPosted on 19/04/2016 by Jess O'Connor
Did you hear the great news last week? New Zealand was once again voted the best country in the world by the UK’s Telegraph publication. This is the fourth time we’ve been awarded this prestigious accolade.
To celebrate this epic win, we’ve put together 3 reasons why studying tourism in New Zealand is amazing. If you’re thinking about pursuing a career in tourism, there’s really no better location than Aotearoa. Here’s why.
1. New Zealand is the adventure capital of the world
If there’s one thing Kiwis know how to do well, it’s adventure tourism. From bungy jumping and white water rafting to ziplining and zorbing, there’s no shortage of activities to get your adrenalin pumping. It’s this infectious love for fun and adventure that makes studying tourism in New Zealand so great. Think of all the jobs you could get when you graduate – how does being a bungy jump assistant sound?
2. ‘Playing tourist’ counts as studying
At ITC, we believe the best way to learn about the travel and tourism industry is by getting out and experiencing it for yourself. Our courses include practical activities and famil trips, offering a chance for you to ‘play tourist’. It’s one thing to learn about New Zealand destinations in a book; it’s another thing altogether to see and experience them with your own eyes.
3. The people are friendly
Most of our students describe ITC as a big, friendly family. We like to think this sums up the rest of New Zealand pretty well, too. We’re a small country with a big heart. ITC loves welcoming international students from all over the world to our friendly Auckland campuses.
BONUS: And yes, the scenery really is stunning!
