About The Program
Built on the sloping hills of extinct volcanoes, Auckland holds unlimited access to adventure. At the University of Auckland, you can take courses in your major or a related field as you immerse into Kiwi culture. As the starting orientation point for all UC students studying in New Zealand, Auckland is also an excellent hub for meeting UC students. Auckland hosts a major business center and some of the best nightlife in the country. Its famed War Memorial Museum contains some of the most comprehensive Maori arts and crafts collections in the world. Group excursions, local student events, and organized activities complete this program.
