Program Description:
University of Auckland with IES Abroad
  We're not surprised that the 2012 Mercer Quality of Living Survey ranked Auckland third in the world for quality of life. With beautiful volcanoes and lava flows, a dynamic mixture of European, Asian, and Pacific Island influences; friendly residents; and breathtaking coastal views, you'll fall for Auckland's tropical charm.

You directly enroll in the University of Auckland, a prestigious research university that has courses in more than 150 disciplines. The University has a wealth of options in Maori Studies and has a Marae (Maori sacred ground) on campus, indicative of not only Auckland's diversity, but also its strong ties to the indigenous Maori heritage.

  Auckland, New Zealand
You won't be able to get enough of New Zealand's active lifestyle while you explore the city's one-of- a-kind landscape. Climb to Auckland's highest point on the top of Mount Eden, watch the sailboats glide by in Waitemata Harbour and Hauraki Gulf, or visit One Tree Hill, one of the city's largest and most culturally significant volcanoes. When you need to rest, simply sit back, put your feet up, and take in the breathtaking beauty of New Zealand

  Housing: Students have a choice of halls of residence, student apartments or homestays. Please click here for more information about university housing options. Homestays are arranged through IES Abroad.

Student Life: The University of Auckland offers a dynamic social and cultural scene. As one of over 30,000 students you will be a member of a dynamic student body. With over 100 different clubs and societies there's a great range of activities on offer to suit everyone.

On-Site Support: By directly enrolling in the University of Auckland through IES, students will have access to on-site staff who are specifically dedicated to IES student needs. Whether it be academic concerns, housing issues, well-being, or safety, the staff is available to fully support students. They will benefit academically, socially, and culturally from IES’ close relationship with the University of Auckland, where the IES program is based.

  Estimated Program Price: When you study abroad for a semester or a year for academic credit, you will be charged tuition by Washington University at a rate equivalent to tuition on campus for the corresponding time period. WU tuition covers only the educational and administrative costs of the study abroad program. WU tuition does not cover any study abroad program costs for room, board, transportation, personal expenses, passport or visa fees. Such costs are charged separately either by WU, the program sponsor, or a third party.
