Exchange Programs

Champlain College's Exchange Programs allow Burlington students to spend a semester immersed in another culture as they live and study at one of our exchange institutions. This also an excellent opportunity to diversify our Burlington campus as we welcome students from our exchange partners for a semester or full academic year.

New Zealand

Auckland University of Technology (AUT)

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.

What Can I Study?

Auckland University of Technology's course offerings fit across majors with a variety of professional, liberal arts and interdisciplinary options that provide students with an understanding of culture and global perspective. If you are interested in studying abroad for a semester, you have an option to partake in a fully supervised internship, giving you a unique experience in the New Zealand workplace.
