Hi there Miss M,
In New Zealand there is a School at the University of Auckland, one at Unitec also in Auckland, and one at Victoria University (Wellington). I think Christchurch also run an introductory course, but I don't really know much about it.
The stereotype idea about each school is that Auckland does cutting edge, high theoretical content building which cost a fortune to build and are unrealistic. Wellington designs very solid buildings with good engineering but they're ugly. Unitec designs rather bland projects because they have a very preacital foundation and strong ties with industry. Of course none of these are quite accurate - Unitec has won some prominent competitions and is good at arranging interesting public lecture series. Auckland has a very good masters course in Environmental design and another in Urban Design. But read their websites if you want more info.
