CLUBS AND GROUPS
When classes are over for the day, many students enjoy IPU New Zealand club activities. Popular clubs based at the IPU New Zealand Recreation Centre are dance, sports, and martial arts clubs.
Our nationally-recognised Japanese KODAMA Drum Team have performed at several international events including the Rugby World Cup, 2014 World Taiko Meet, WOMAD, and annually at the Festival of Cultures in Palmerston North, is in high demand throughout New Zealand.
If your preferred sport or hobby is not available at IPU New Zealand, you have the opportunity to create a new club and make use of IPU New Zealand's great facilities.
Throughout the academic year, IPU New Zealand hosts a number of events for students. Many of these are student-led and provide a great opportunity for students to enhance their leadership and event management skills.
