WellingtonEducation tourism is fast taking over students today and they are constantly in the lookout for the most suitable cities that would offer the best institutions and overall development in the area of education and personality development.


Recently the Universities of Victoria, University of Wellington, New Zealand are inviting students from the ASEAN region to apply for ASEAN undergraduate scholarship.



The universities are offering five scholarships to promote educational opportunities for young ASEAN students who have excellent academic record and leadership potential.



Wellington is just does not a seat for educational pursuit but there is more that a student can peruse while there.


Wellington has a colourful character, its waterfront is a great place to go walking, running, skating and biking, or to just sit and chill. On Saturdays there’s the Underground Market and, on Sundays, the Harbourside Market.


A thriving theatre and music scenes with live shows every night of the week can be seen once in a while. The city prides itself on being the culinary capital and there are always new dining options to try. If you’re planning a night on the town, Courtenay Place is a good place to start.


Students interested in arts, architecture and politics will find a tour to the parliament quite enlightening.


For, those who are movie lovers Wellywood is home to Weta Workshop and the New Zealand Film Archive. It also has many cinemas, some of which have student discounts or cheap nights. In summer, outdoor movie theaters often pop up around the region.


Walk down the national museum for free and the award-winning Museum of Wellington City and Sea can be a break from the regular routine.


Zealandia and Wellington Zoo offer discount pricing for students so you can check out those places.


For students this would be just about the coolest street. The colourful Cuba Street is a haven for buskers, bohemians, coffee-lovers, vintage shoppers and culinary enthusiasts.


For short holidays at the university mountain biking trails, taking a dip in Oriental Bay, surfing at Lyall Bay, walking the town belt and sailing or kayaking on the harbour are just some of the ways Wellingtonians enjoy the great outdoors. The WellyWalks app will help you guide through the attractions of Wellington.


Taking strolls in the Wellington Botanic Garden or take the ferry over to Matiu/Somes Island or Days Bay and Eastbourne can also be planned on a Sunday along with a visit to Mount Victoria which offers a panoramic view of Wellington.
