Best quality of life
From study breaks on the waterfront to live arts performances on the weekend, learn out to love life while you’re studying, in Wellington.
Wellington wants to give you the best study experience and that starts with making sure you’ll love living in our city.
Crowned the World’s Most Liveable City by Deutsche Bank two years in a row, our city’s safety, short commutes, low levels of pollution and climate amongst other things make Wellington the best place to pursue a world-class education.
To celebrate the end of exams, enjoy the school and university holidays, or just have a weekend adventure, take advantage of one if the region’s hundreds of wilderness trails – most of which are just a bus or train ride away. You’ll have access to almost 300km of stunning nature trails, lots of great beaches for swimming in summer, and plenty of other recreational activities.
Wellington can fill up every week with fun activities with its great live music scene, world-class foodie culture, and celebration of everything arts. Go to your first local theatre show or check out the latest City Gallery art exhibition – there’s always something new to experience and learn, and it doesn’t necessarily need to be taught in the classroom.
