New Zealand

Experience a semester abroad studying at the University of Waikato! Considered one of the safest and most progressive countries in the world, New Zealand is a destination like no other. The University of Waikato is a institution committed to international student integration and success, and with a wide range of courses offered, every student will have a chance for positive growth, both personally and academically. 

NOTE: Internships and research opportunities are available during this long-term study abroad program.


  • Study at a world-ranked university, focused on international education and global research
  • Engage with welcoming, and accessible academic staff
  • New students participate in the International Buddy Program, where they are paired with existing University of Waikato students who help welcome international students, show them around campus, and participate in weekend excursions.
  • Hamilton is located near the center of North Island and is the perfect place to go exploring. Beach days, hiking trips, visits to other cities, and even a visit to "Hobbiton," from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films, are all very accessible.
