FUTURE-FOCUSED STUDY ABROAD
New Zealand

Where else can you study abroad that offers opportunities to engage with Maori culture, participate in outdoor adventures, and experience exquisite natural beauty all while getting a top-notch education? From the vibrant capital city of Wellington to sophisticated Auckland to college town Dunedin, New Zealand’s cities feature sports, entertainment, cultural attractions and lots to see and do. It’s no wonder Lonely Planet named New Zealand the top destination in the world two years in a row!

You can choose from five partner universities for an outstanding study abroad experience. The flexibility of the New Zealand university system gives you a great selection of courses and subjects, along with the opportunity to truly immerse yourself into the Kiwi culture. Consider taking at least one Maori studies course to learn about the history and culture of the Polynesian Maori, the impact of European settlers in the 19th century, and their participation in New Zealand government in the 21st century.
