Arana was “International” before the term “International” became popular. With residents supported by the Colombo plan Arana has experience of working with people from a great variety of cultures, countries and backgrounds.
Arana welcomes international students from all over the world. We have students coming from China, USA, Canada, Australia, Malaysia, Mexico, Brazil, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand... the list goes on.
International students are very much part of the Arana scene.
Arana students participate in an annual international students' festival and various other hall activities.
International students provide an exciting dynamic to the Arana College culture. Events are specifically targeted to this group to help immerse them in Kiwi culture as well as allowing them to share their own cultures with others.
