Auckland, New Zealand

Do you want to study abroad and completely immerse yourself in a foreign country? Through Champlain's partner program with the Auckland University of Technology (AUT), you can spend a semester abroad in Auckland, New Zealand.


Why Auckland, New Zealand?

New Zealand is one of the safest travel destinations in the world, and Auckland is ranked third on Mercer's global 2012 Quality of Life Survey. With a vibrant metropolitan area and breathtaking views, Auckland is a gateway to the ocean, beaches and snow-capped mountains. You'll get to know Auckland by tasting your way through the many restaurants and vineyards, and by exploring not only the urban attractions, but the scenic ones as well. Take a weekend to see the rest of the country and find the locations where the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy was filmed.

Why New Zealand with Champlain College?

Like the Champlain Abroad signature programs in Dublin and Montreal, students studying abroad through the Auckland program are able to take advantage of internship, service learning and volunteer immersion opportunities during their time abroad.
