      Very interesting hub! I never went to New Zealand but it's on my list of things to visit!

      It's interesting to see the picture of Ivey Hall, Lincoln University; it almost has a touch of Dutch in the architecture.

      Thank you for all that information about studying there; excellent info for people who can't afford to pay a lot but want good conditions to study and on top of that discover a new country!

      Voted up and interesting!
