Say hello to the mamas
When the Four Mamas founded API together more than 20 years ago, they dreamed of creating high-quality, safe, life-changing study abroad programs they would feel good sending their own kids on. With dedication, hard work, and a lot of love, their dream became reality. Thousands and thousands of students have chosen API to support them on their own life-changing study abroad experiences, with the Four Mamas cheering them on every step of the way. No matter who you are or where you come from, API will support you on your journey.

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.
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!
The best way to get to know New Zealand culture is through a good game of rugby! We’ll meet up, grab a bite to eat (meal not included in event), and take a train to the most famous Rugby field in Auckland - Eden Park, to watch our Auckland team take on another city!!

API partner universities in New Zealand operate on a credit ‘point’ system. Courses in New Zealand are commonly referred to as “papers.” The credit point weight per paper varies from 15-20, depending on the course with 18 credit points most common. Generally speaking, one 18 point paper is generally equivalent to 3-4 U.S. semester credits. Most students take 3-4 papers per semester for 54-72 credit points per semester or 12-16 U.S. semester credits. Given that point values vary, the way in which credits completed abroad will transfer to a student’s home campus will be under the discretion of the student’s home institution, and should be verified in advance.
