“Nature and NGOs in New Zealand”, means we will visit some National Parks, and NGOs. We will listen to lectures about Nature and NGOs in New Zealand. Before we leave Japan, we will study about Nature and NGOs in New Zealand. Most importantly, students must do Field Research on this topic.


  • Arrive in Auckland on Sunday, and go direct to homestay families
  • On the first Monday morning:
    • go to school by public bus (homestay family will help)
    • 2-3 hours of guidance and tests

Morning English Classes

  • Class size- average 13 students, max. 18.
  • KSU students will be integrated with students from other countries

Afternoon Field Research

  • Research trips, outside school.
  • Classes on “research methods”.
  • Two small field research projects. In February/ March 2009, these small research projects were on “Rainbow Warrior” and “America`s Cup”. In small groups, students must do background research and then field research in downtown Auckland.
  • One big field research project. The topic is “Nature and NGOs in New Zealand”. Before leaving Japan, students will make a questionnaire, which will be used to interview people in Auckland. Each student must interview at least 20 people. After coming back to Japan, students must submit a report and give a group presentation on the data they get from their interviews.
