Study Abroad

With all the opportunities to study abroad throughout the world you might ask yourself, “Why choose Auckland?” The answer is simple: Auckland has pretty much everything going for it.


This large metropolis, nicknamed the “Super City,” is a fast-paced environment full of amazing shopping, outdoor entertainment, restaurants and business opportunities. It also has one of the most varied populations in the world and will grant you the opportunity to interact with people from all over the world and develop an innate ability to operate on a global scale after you graduate.


Plus, did we mention it’s in New Zealand? You know, one of the most stunningly beautiful places on Earth? What’s not to love about that? There are plenty of universities to choose from with programs ranging from business to liberal arts to oceanography and more. It’s surrounded by volcanic cones and islands, great for exploration and offshore adventures.


Best of all, you’ll be front and center in the middle of Maori culture, one of the most unique groups of people in the history of the world. If you’ve never considered spending a semester in Auckland you should definitely put it on your radar as a place you might want to go. Check with your university and see what programs they partner with in the city today.
