API students participate in several excursions per session designed to help familiarize them with areas of their host city, country, and surrounding region. The following is a listing of all excursions for API Auckland programs. All excursions and cultural events are subject to change.

  • Auckland - Orientation

    API New Zealand students will begin their program with a 2.5-day arrival orientation in their host city of Auckland. This orientation will provide the opportunity to get to know fellow participants, API, and university procedures, and rules, to explore your new host city and to allow for a smoother transition into New Zealand life. Students will spend two nights together in a hotel before moving into their semester housing on day three.

  • Sky Tower & Orbit 360

    Visit and experience the Sky Tower (the tallest freestanding structure in the Southern Hemisphere). After a walk around the tower and soaking in 360 degree views of Auckland, we indulge in a special dinner at heights!

  • Blue's Rugby

    Depending on the season, students will attend a game of rugby under the stars, watching the Auckland Blues take on one of their competitors!

  • Rangitoto Island Hike

    The group will a ferry over to one of Auckland’s dormant volcanoes and hike up to take in the spectacular views of the city!

  • Hobbiton Tour

    Students will enter the magical world of ‘the Shire’ on this movie set tour to Hobbiton from Auckland. Students will see where The Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed and pose for pictures in front of hobbit holes. The tour includes a visit to the party tree, Green Dragon Inn and Bilbo Baggins’ house, and an opportunity to learn from the guide about the making of the films. Afterward, enjoy a beverage in the Green Dragon Inn followed by lunch at The Shire’s Rest Café.

  • Rotorua

    Midway through the semester API students will fly to Rotorua on the north island for a three-night adventure. This excursion will include opportunities to learn about the Maori culture. In addition to seeing Maori arts and dance exhibitions, students will have the chance to experience some of the area’s natural wonders through zip-line and luge escapades, guided hikes and eco-tours of the local jungle, geysers, and thermal mud pools.

  • Tree Adventures & Surf Lesson

    Students will enjoy climbing through an obstacle course high in the trees. We’ll stop for a short lunch break. After, students will try surfing on the West Coast of NZ - at a beautiful black sand beach.

COURSE OFFERINGS

COURSE INFORMATION

The University of Auckland is New Zealand’s largest and most comprehensive university offering courses in over 100 subjects. Study abroad and exchange students can select 3-4 courses to study per semester. Most courses include 2 lectures or classes per week and one tutorial or lab. Including assignments and out-of-class study, each course should involve about 10 hours of work per week.

CREDIT INFORMATION

Courses in New Zealand are commonly referred to as “papers.” Introductory papers are called 100-level papers; subsequent years or semesters are considered 200- and 300-level papers. 400-level papers are considered at the graduate level. Most papers are single-semester and are worth 15 points (credits). Minimum full-time enrollment at U of A includes 60 points (i.e. 4 papers per semester). One 15 point paper is generally equivalent to 3-4 U.S. semester credits or 4-6 quarter units. Given that point values vary, the way in which credits completed abroad will transfer to a student’s home campus will be at the discretion of the student’s home institution and should be verified in advance.
