NZEStar Group Programmes

The group program is designed for students/people to come to New Zealand as a group for a short period of time. Students/people will usually be placed with a local host family, attend a local high school or a language school with a combination of lots of fun activities such as sheep shearing, horse riding, punting, or a day trip out in the country on the program.

The main purpose of the program is for students/people to have a full Kiwi cultural immersion experience and gain a better understanding of the culture differences between New Zealand and their own country.
