Bringing together the world’s largest Polynesian population with diverse European and Asian cultures, Auckland is brimming with unique experiences, scenery, people and adventure. For students looking for high academic standards mixed with an unbeatable atmosphere, you’ve come to the right place! New Zealand’s largest city sits comfortably on a narrow isthmus between two magnificent harbors. Black sand beaches on the west coast and island beaches on the east coast vie for attention as eight dormant volcanoes dot the landscape and the rainforest silently envelops the city. Add in both the nation’s top-ranked university and fastest-growing university, not to mention New Zealand’s best business program and the option to participate in professional internships, and you have the perfect combination for a study abroad destination that will always be introducing you to something new.
