Columba College has a long and proud tradition of being home to young people from around the world. We offer young women an excellent education in a family environment within a safe and friendly city.
Our values are centred around GRACE: Good discipline, Respect, Aroha (love and kindness), Citizenship and Excellence. It is these values that you see lived in the daily lives of our young women and their teachers, and this is the Columba difference.
We welcome the cultural diversity and international dimension our International Students bring to school life.

Dunedin, New Zealand
Dunedin is an attractive university city with a population of 126,000. It is not too big and not too small, yet has all the amenities and infrastructure students could hope for. With everything close to hand, it’s easy to get around. Dunedin has earned the reputation as New Zealand’s wildlife capital, the Otago Peninsula home to New Zealand fur seals & sea lions, yellow-eyed penguins, and the world’s only mainland royal albatross colony.
The city values students from abroad and they are welcome to use the Dunedin Public Library and the University of Otago Library (and associated study rooms) as well as to take advantage of the outstanding range of cultural and sporting facilities of which the city is justifiably proud.
