This programme caters for those international students that don't do our national exams. This programme is basically Activities and English! While the NZ students focus on their studies ILC students go with our Outdoor instructors to Fiordland (where Lord of the Rings was filmed), to the South Coast for surfing and then closer to home in and around Wanaka - making the most of our local environment. The English component focuses on either IELTS or Cambridge Exam preparation.
The programme takes the students outside of Wanaka to experience the Best of the South - Fiordland National Park, the Caitlins coast for surfing and Mount Aspiring National Park with activities in and around Wanaka, such as rock climbing, mountain biking and sailing. The only costs to the students for this programme are for the Surf Lessons (approx $90 for 3 lessons).
This programme is often the highlight of their time at MAC and alongside their instructors learn important skills for life, such as cooking, cleaning, being part of a team and being responsible for yourself. It truly is an unforgettable experience.
