There is a respectful relationship between teachers and students - whether national or the welcome international guest students from around the world.

On a beautiful 20-hectare campus presents Newlands College in the New Zealand capital Wellington, an important place for higher education. Modern and high-quality vocational classrooms, computer rooms as well as a large leisure center characterize the college.

Newlands is traditionally oriented. Four houses are named after the native New Zealand trees Kowhai, Matai, Rimu and Totara. The students selected there can score points for the house and win the Inter-house Cup. In addition, college commissioners represent as home speakers, boys '/ girls' spokespersons, representatives of international students, Maori, sports, arts, academia, and trust commissioners.

In individually tailored lessons, guest students achieve their learning goals just like local students. For a harmonious, positive stay, they are accommodated in families that are carefully selected. A caregiver accompanies the students in their living life with care.
