Meet Lucas, a student from Brazil

I'm studying Computer Science at university in Hamilton. I’m going to see a bit more of New Zealand, then maybe stay here and work in IT.

Studying here is awesome. You’ve got very experienced teachers and lots of study breaks, so you really get to know your stuff. You get such a great balance between study and life. No way I could get this back home.

What I love about New Zealand

Kiwis love getting outside because there’s so much to do. I can go to the beach, the mountains or skiing – all in one day. I joined a hiking club and it’s a great way to see this amazing country.

People here are so chilled out. They get around in bare feet and everything’s “sweet as”!

Watch the video above to spend a day in the life of Lucas.
