Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Bus transportation in Queenstown could definitely be improved: long waits and if you are planning on going out at night you will have to take a cab, which are incredibly expensive. Queenstown is perfect if you like extreme sports: kayaking, bungy-jumping, sky-diving, safaris, zip lines (zip-line), kart (the luge), mountain biking and many more ... but yes, everything is quite expensive.
The location because I lived at a friend's house next to the school

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I can not answer you because I am not housed with other students and I do not practice the afternoon I am only for the morning
Other comments: I am retired 60 years old and when I arrived I was the only one and I was accepted it was my apprehension in the second week of other retired women arrived so the integration went very well
