Rotorua is a city located in the centre of New Zealand’s North Island.
It’s an area that is rich in culture, history and natural wonders. Rotorua is well known for the beauty of its many lakes, forests and geothermal features, as well as its welcoming hospitality – referred to in Māori as ‘manaakitanga’ (mar-nah- key-tongue-are).
Because it’s long been a favourite destination for tourists, Rotorua offers the type of cosmopolitan lifestyle that you’d expect from a city twice its size. That means there are plenty of modern facilities to support a quality lifestyle for the people who live here, but it’s also easy to get around and there’s a strong sense of community.
Rotorua offers excellent educational opportunities at all levels. International students also benefit from wonderful care and support during their time here and thrive in the healthy, outdoor lifestyle that this region can offer. Rotorua’s central location makes it one of the most accessible cities in the country.
