College Groups

Our programs are fully customized to the needs & learning outcomes of each tertiary institute.
We specialize in using New Zealand as a case study across a range of disciplines, 
using models that are comparable to those students will be familiar with back home.

Each tour itinerary is designed as a complete structured learning event where experiences build on each other. Students develop a progressively greater understanding of key concepts & their applications. We collaborate fully with faculty to ensure that learning is maximized by contrasting the context of each experience against U.S. examples. Each program also looks to broaden students outlook through examining New Zealand culture, learning through interaction with real New Zealanders & traditional Maori cultural experiences.

We deliver learning experiences that are of the highest quality as well as being excellent value for money. Your students will be excited & engaged in their learning & you will see them take this learning home, with a new, more thorough understanding & appreciation of their course material.

STUDYING ABROAD WITH THE PERFECT MIX OF HARD WORK & EXCITEMENT

powerful learning models using real-world context

Kuaka New Zealand has developed powerful learning models that give students understanding of key learning objectives in a real world context.

We specialize in physical & social sciences. Many operations in New Zealand are small & able to be viewed in miniature, making them easier to analyze & understand. We use these small operations as case studies to demonstrate key learning points & then how they relate to each other.

Kuaka has developed several field project sites where we can demonstrate many key curriculum areas as well as broader environmental / land management concepts as they are in real life.

We use a learning model where students are introduced to the theory, engage in practice, then process and reflect on the whole experience. A study tour runs for 7 to 21 days with experiences every day. We keep the learning front of mind by designing a staircased learning experience where we make sure they process before we move on. This process also naturally leads to students getting more involved in small group discussion & extending each others learning. They can then journal their own thoughts & it stays with them.

LEARN

Concepts are introduced in a fun, interesting way

PRACTICE

Practical exercises give real-world context

REFLECT

Time is set aside each day for group discussions &/or journaling
