What are Inbound Tours?

NZIIU welcomes groups of short term students to study in various areas of New Zealand. These groups usually stay from 1 – 4 weeks and participate in conversational English lessons run by our own specially trained teachers. Groups enjoy fun & educational outings plus activities in the local area. Group sizes are approximately 15 students to 1 teacher and students must be 10 years or older to participate in the programme.

What we strive to achieve.

To provide the best possible experience for students, enabling them to fully immerse into New Zealand culture, to practice their English skills and make most out of their short stay.

How we operate.

With tour coordinators in both the North Island and South Island we are able to provide different locations and areas within New Zealand to suit your requirements. Our programmes are very flexible and with our many relationships across the tourism industry, whether you require an internship programme, specialist university programme, intensive English programme or provide assistance within New Zealand, we create specific tailored programmes for your requests.

How we run our groups.

Groups can be based at a local school or a community centre. The visiting students will enjoy arranged interactions with the students based at the school in addition to informal time together during breaks and lunchtime, so they can experience what it is like to be at a NZ school. During the tour NZIIU provides specially trained teachers to be able to support students in their language learning, conduct sightseeing trips and provide the best possible experience for the students. All NZIIU staff are on call at any hour of the day or night to provide support if needed.

Host families:

In order for students to achieve optimal immersion into New Zealand life all students are placed with a home stay family. All our families are carefully selected, undergo police vets and meet the requirements of New Zealand Code of Practice before they are given the opportunity to host a student, this gives not only the students but also parent’s peace for mind for their stay while they are in New Zealand.
