About the Program
IFSA-Butler works with the University of Auckland to help facilitate the enrollment of Tulane students into various faculties at this prestigious research university that has courses in more than 150 disciplines. The University has a wealth of options in Maori Studies and has a marae (Maori sacred ground) on campus, indicative of Auckland’s diversity and New Zealand’s Maori heritage.
 
Founded in 1883, the University of Auckland is the only New Zealand member of the prestigious Universitas 21, a global consortium of major universities engaged in research, academic exchange, and quality benchmarking. With about 40,000 students (including 4,000+ international students from 93 countries) the University fosters a diverse and challenging academic environment. In 2014, the University of Auckland was the only university in New Zealand included in the top 200 universities in the world list by The Times Education Supplement. The Association of Pacific Rim Universities Performance-based Research Fund also ranked the University first in New Zealand with the greatest number of A-rated researchers in the country.
 
The University is centrally located in the heart of Auckland, and covers an impressive 39 acres of land. The city campus has easy access to the cultural and commercial amenities of the country’s largest city, while harbor views and nearby parks add to its attractiveness.


Auckland, New Zealand
The university is located right in the heart of New Zealand's largest city, which provides you with plenty of opportunities to experience both the city and outdoor life of New Zealand. Auckland, with an urban population of almost 1.5 million, is the most populous urban area in all of New Zealand. Located on the North Island of the country, Auckland is both the financial, commercial and cultural center of the country but also well-connected to many of the natural wonders of New Zealand. Sailing is one of the most popular pastimes in the city, while many Aucklanders take advantage of the transportation links between Auckland and the Northland, the geysers and mudpools of Rotorua and the Bay of Islands areas.

Study abroad students can select a wide range of courses from the same faculties to which degree-seeking students also have access. Students will typically enroll in four courses (called “papers” in New Zealand) at University of Auckland.  Each course worth 15 points in New Zealand will be the equivalent of 4 credit hours at Tulane. The University of Auckland offers many opportunities for you to pursue course-related excursions in many academics areas, especially Archaeology, Biology, Ecology, Environmental Studies, Geology, and Marine Science. Courses exploring Maori culture also include important field study.

Student Life
As a full-time student of the University of Canterbury, Tulane students will find themselves engaged in university life right alongside local, degree-seeking students.
