Program Description:

Arcadia - U of Auckland
New Zealand’s largest university - in its largest, and most multicultural, city

Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city by far and is the commercial hub of the nation. Located on a beautiful harbor, with a temperate climate, Auckland has a population so diverse that it is often ranked among the ten most multicultural and diverse cities in the world. Fun fact - more Pacific Islanders live in Auckland than in any other one place in the Pacific. At the University of Auckland, you'll be studying alongside Maori students, South Pacific Islanders, and other international students - giving Auckland the vibrant diversity that makes it such an exciting learning community.

Recognized internationally as New Zealand’s largest and highest-ranked university, the University of Auckland prides itself on academic excellence. With more than 40,000 students, it is more than double the size of any other university in New Zealand. With that comes a wonderful selection of course offerings in everything from business - where faculty enjoy using case studies and group projects in many of their courses - to engineering, health sciences, fine arts, marine science, and Maori and Pasifika Studies. The University has been recognized internationally for its strengths in sustainability, innovation, and entrepreneurship. The University was ranked first in the world in the Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings in both 2019 and 2020.

  • Although Auckland is a bustling city of 1.5 million people, there are wonderful large inner city parks and easy access to beautiful beaches allowing for swimming and surfing options for most of the year.
  • Among the features that define Auckland’s commitment to academic excellence are field study components in many courses, which offer a chance to bring learning outside the classroom.
  • Auckland's Business School is AACSB-accredited.
  • With over 200 clubs and sports teams on campus, there's an activity for every taste. From hiking, canoeing, photography, and politics, to cosplay, drinking wine or eating desserts, clubs help balance your studies and grow your network.
  • The Study Abroad Students’ Society (also known as SASS) creates an inclusive community for returned, outgoing, and incoming study abroad and exchange students through fun trips, events, and social mixers.
  • Travel to fascinating places of interest that enhance your cultural immersion and give a meaningful context to your academic courses, through Arcadia's planned excursions and activities.
  • Auckland is the transport hub of New Zealand with easy access to all parts of the country, as well as flights to Australia and the Pacific. The two-week semester break and easy access mean that many students spend a week traveling around the South Island and a week snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef in Australia or exploring the gorgeous Pacific Islands.
  • The university is home to the Unleash Space, a dedicated space on campus for makers, creators, builders, fabricators, and designers that is free for students to use.


Arcadia is a nationally recognized leader in higher education, offering exceptional study, research, and internship experiences for students from colleges and universities across the US. Our unique combination of customized, diverse academic programming and comprehensive support allows students to explore new worlds, get to know themselves, boost their resumes for future job opportunities and graduate school, and experience the incredible growth and shifts in perspective that a culturally immersive experience can deliver.
