Study Abroad in Auckland

What to Expect in Auckland

You won’t be able to get enough of New Zealand’s active lifestyle while you study in Auckland and 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. For study abroad, Auckland is the place to be.
