We make organising student or alumni travel to New Zealand a breeze. From work experience to adventure, cultural experiences to study abroad, custom build your own programme and itinerary with us.
A New Zealand student travel experience to remember
New Zealand is a fantastic location for international student groups to travel to. As an overseas experience for students and alumni, it has everything you could want, from world-leading work experience options in many different industries through to amazing recreational activities.
When you custom build a programme and itinerary through Absolute Aotearoa, every detail will be taken care of ahead of time, and we are fully flexible in your travel options and class requirements.
Travel that’s built around your class needs
Not the other way around! The great thing about our New Zealand student travel programmes is they are unique to every university or school that books with us. Every aspect of your trip will be put together around what you and your students are looking to get out of the trip.
We can arrange accommodation, recreational activities if you want them, and we even have a wide range of professional contacts across multiple industries to secure exclusive behind the scenes meetings and lectures.

Faculty-led international culture and leisure studies trip
This 20-day trip for The College at Brockport, NY began in Christchurch and slowly worked up to finish in Auckland. Students experienced the leisure activity hotspots of Queenstown and Taupō, the Māori cultural home Rotorua, and saw a glimpse of how our government runs in Wellington.
Leisure activities included in the tour were blackwater rafting through glowworm caves, experiencing a geyser and geothermal wonders, OGO rides (aka Zorb), and an overnight stay on a boat.
Students also learned about the history and culture of New Zealand with 3.5hr session at Waikato University on Māori culture, visiting a Māori village and experiencing an authentic Hāngī dinner.
