Two of the world’s most popular study destinations, Australia and New Zealand have always appealed to international students. Indeed, who could turn down the sun and sand of Australia, or the rugged natural beauty (and penguins!) of New Zealand?
But of course these natural attractions wouldn’t be worth much if they weren't combined with excellent universities – assets in which both countries are also wealthy.
