Study Abroad and Exchange

Study at one of the world's top-ranked universities for one or two trimesters and transfer your credits back to your home degree.

Explore New Zealand while you study

New Zealand is a small yet mighty country of 4.5 million people located in the South Pacific. A study and travel experience in New Zealand is transformative. You'll join a world-class education system, meet friendly locals, see amazing sights, and enjoy a healthy work-life balance. The University of Waikato is centrally located on the North Island in the city of Hamilton, or the beach city of Tauranga, just a few hours south of Auckland. Our location makes it easy to explore New Zealand's stunning beaches, forests, and mountains... all in one day!
