Why Study in Whanganui?

Our city is big enough to offer plenty to do, and small enough to provide a sense of community. It’s easy and safe for students to get around town on foot or bike and our affordable cost-of-living means less stress and more time to focus.

Future-Focused Learning

Our education providers are focused on their students’ futures and provide curriculum and opportunities that will lead to fulfilling careers. Small class sizes mean students have personalised attention and access to resources, and our affordable, friendly town provides students all they need to make the most of their time here.

Connected Students

Students in Whanganui are well connected to the rest of the country and the world. A central location means it’s within an easy drive of most North Island cities and short, daily flights connect us to Auckland International Airport. Whanganui is internationally known as a ‘smart city’ and students benefit from our reliable, ultra-fast Internet speeds.

A Welcoming Community

It’s easy to make friends in our warm and diverse community. Small class sizes mean you’ll get to build relationships with your classmates, teachers and tutors, and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in volunteer work, sports teams, classes and clubs that will put you in contact with other like-minded people.
