According to Immigration New Zealand, over 100,000 international students get enrolled in various Kiwi universities every year. While searching and applying to universities in New Zealand, it is important that you know about the environment in and around the campus you will be living in. Apart from quality institutes, New Zealand boasts of many cities which attract a number of international students due to their easy accessibility and affordable living costs compared to cities in other major study destinations.

The city, which is ranked 18th in the top student cities in New Zealand and the world by QS, is home to some of the most well-known universities in New Zealand like the University of Auckland, Auckland Technology University, among others.
One of the interesting aspects of Auckland is that it is small in size and thanks to a fast growing transport network; most of the attractions can be explored within half an hour of the city centre.
Being one of the populated and prosperous areas of New Zealand, the cost of living in Auckland for international students is among the highest in the country.
