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.
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.
