STUDY ABROAD IN AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

About Term Three

Beaches, beauty, kangaroos and kiwis await you on the other side of the globe, where you’ll discover unique wildlife and eco-systems, visit natural wonders, and explore unique and astounding landscapes. In Term Three of Global High School, you’ll experience the sand, surf, sun and smiles that Australia and New Zealand are known for.

Start off Semester Two in Tutukaka, New Zealand, rated as one of the top coastal destinations on the planet by National Geographic Traveller. Explore coastal trails with a Maori guide, learn to surf at one of the area’s numerous sandy beaches, observe the biology of local tide pools, or opt to take a day cruise to the Poor Knights Marine Reserve and explore underwater shipwrecks on a dive.

Head across the Tasman Sea to Australia’s Whitsunday Coast, dotted with islands, lined with sublime beaches, and perfect for sun and relaxation. While here, sail to the Great Barrier Reef to discover its unique aquatic life, before travelling down the east coast to study in Brisbane, a city that offers a taste of hipster cool, with laid-back cafés, excellent vintage shopping, and an artistic vibe. Visit the area’s Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary to meet koalas, feed kangaroos, and learn about unique Australian wildlife.

Bid g’day to your new Aussie friends, and head back to explore more of New Zealand, offering dramatic landscapes that provided the backdrop for the Lord of the Rings films—no CGI needed here! Known as the adventure capital of the world, Queenstown is a place for adventurers and thrill-seekers. Here, we’ll blend study with outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, Frisbee and many more.

Our next stop in New Zealand is Rotorua. Known for its geothermal activity, the area features numerous geysers and hot mud pools.

We’ll spend the final days of Term Three in easy-going Auckland. This city offers a remarkable range of scenery, where everyone lives within half an hour of beautiful beaches, hiking trails and enchanting islands. It’s a great environment to rest, study and recalibrate.

Thank you for your interest in Blyth Academy Global High School.

After careful consultation with our staff and vendors, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Global High School program for the 2020-21 school year. Given significant and widespread disruptions to global travel, and the uncertainty of when operations will return to normal, it is simply not possible to plan and operate these programs to our high standards of safety and execution.

For more information, or to talk through possible options, please contact the Admissions team via admissions@blytheducation.com or 416-960-3552. The Admissions team can also speak to you about options to complete the current academic year if this is of interest as well.
