- New Zealand is a prosperous and economically successful country
The New Zealand economy remains one of the most successful in the region. It is a large exporter of dairy products, wool, wood, fish, and machinery. The services and tourism sectors are also both very strong. The economy has a low unemployment rate and a high GDP per capita.
- New Zealand is one of the safest places in the world
New Zealand has a very low crime rate compared to most countries in the European Union. It is ranked third in the world in the Global Peace Index and violent crime is very rare. It is a peaceful place to live and the perfect place to raise a family.
- The lifestyle is incredible
Life is very laid back in New Zealand! New Zealanders spend their weekend enjoying the beautiful natural environment, surfing, skiing, hiking, cycling, or simply enjoying the view! The food is incredible in NZ also — you will be amazed when you try the cheese and beer. You will enjoy a very relaxing lifestyle while living in New Zealand!
- You can avoid the crowds!
New Zealand is geographically larger than the UK — but it only has a population 4.5 million people. That means there are less people on the beaches, less traffic, and the pace of life is slower. You finally have time to breathe and relax without constantly bumping into people!

- The education system is excellent
New Zealand has a well-funded education system with excellent public and private schools. In terms of educational outcomes, New Zealand ranks slightly above the UK for both science and maths. Similar to the UK, the national school curriculum has a strong focus on the arts, maths, science, english, and history.
Schooling is compulsory in New Zealand for children between the ages of 6 and 16. This is followed by two years of optional secondary school.
Some of the best schools in New Zealand include:
