The Campbell Institute Wellington

(134 ratings)

This prestigious school owes its name to the talented and well respected New Zealand professor Alyerd Campbell Brown, whom during the 1940s was at the forefront of education in New Zealand and Australia. The Campbell Institute continues his legacy of quality education paired with personalized assistance. The school was acquired by ACG Education in 2017, an independent educational organization which provides pathway to university programs. The Campbell Institute is located in the same building as ACG, sharing some classroom facilities. 

The school is located on the fourth level of the train station in the financial district of Wellington, close to cafes, restaurants, shops and tourist sites. From here, students are able to travel the city with ease, as well as access the ferry terminal nearby. The Campbell Institute facilities have bright classrooms with interactive whiteboards, wifi and a student lounge where students can relax or take part in a game of table soccer, study, read or practice their new found English language skills.

The school provides not only English education, but also special courses for young adults and courses paired with activities. The Campbell Institute focuses on providing the necessary attention to individual students. To enable the school to do this, each week they provide each student with a private lesson, free of charge, to be able to focus on and build individuals’ understanding. The school has the longest running Au Pair program in New Zealand, which provides students with a more focused experience in English practice and engaging in the local culture.

Given that the school is surrounded by numerous educational institutes, such as the University of Victoria, the spirit of innovation felt in this district clearly influences the school. On top of this, the school is surrounded by restaurants and cafes which students can enjoy visiting after class.

In addition to the school’s facilities, the staff at The Campbell Institute organizes an activities program for students every week including movie nights, board games, conversation club, visits to museums and sporting matches. Each weekend students also have the opportunity to explore further afield, going hiking in beautiful natural landscapes, or even taking part in more exhilarating sports like paragliding!

All of the professors at the Campbell Institute are well experienced as English as a foreign language teachers, supporting each student according to their needs.
