Did you know that you could spend your summer break studying abroad in New Zealand? The New Zealand Studies program in Dunedin, New Zealand, lets you enjoy so many of the best things about studying abroad–beautiful scenery, a top-ranked university, new friends from around the globe, and amazing outdoor adventures–all in just three weeks! Take one or two courses focused on New Zealand business, environment, geology, and culture at the University of Otago in Dunedin on the South Island and get up to 6 US semester credit hours. Each course option takes a specifically Kiwi look at the topic, letting you get a perspective that you won’t get anywhere else in the world.
Get the full experience of studying at the University of Otago through taking courses on campus taught by top professors, doing hands-on work around the city and the region, and “flatting” in a house on the edge of campus with other international students, just like Kiwi student do. Spend your weekends exploring the historic city of Dunedin, the rugged Otago region, and the beautiful South Island of New Zealand, from the sandy beaches and surfing waves of Moreaki to the adrenaline-packed lakeside city of Queenstown.
Here’s what some past program participants had to say about their experience:
“Studying abroad is the best thing I have ever done. Everyone always says that, but it is so true. I expected to change and grow and learn so much during my experience, but I severely underestimated how much I would do so. Traveling and experiencing the world really does change you for the better.” – ISA Dunedin Student, Allison Bauman
“This experience was absolutely life-changing. It’s truly something you have to experience yourself to understand the impact it has on your life. Just thinking about the last four months makes me laugh, cry, and wish I could do it all over again. Absolutely amazing and I am so lucky to have had the amazing ISA staff here to support me along the way. Thank you for everything! I am truly inspired to keep traveling and seeing the beauty the world has to offer.” – ISA Dunedin Student, Sarah Kahan
