Study Abroad + Options
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Dunedin is the second-largest city on New Zealand’s South Island. Dunedin and the surrounding area are widely known as an eco-tourism destination, and a great jumping-off point for outdoor recreational activities such as hiking, skiing, trekking, and kayaking. The city is very easy to navigate for pedestrians, and its lively central shopping district is within walking distance of campus. Come study abroad with API in Dunedin and see why this city is a favorite for Kiwi students!
API students have the opportunity to study abroad in Dunedin at one of New Zealand’s oldest and most prestigious universities – The University of Otago. Founded in 1869, the University of Otago is among the world’s best, ranking #1 for oceanography (2011), and its business programs are also AACSB and EQUIS accredited. Arguably one of the most beautiful campuses in the southern hemisphere, the school is located close to the city center – a perfect ‘commute’ for the student population (which makes up 20% of the city population of Dunedin). A recent i-Student Benchmarking Survey saw the University of Otago ranked highest of all New Zealand universities in such key areas as learning, living, support, and arrival services. Students can choose from subjects such as business, health sciences, humanities, natural sciences, and much more.
“Everyone at API was so helpful along the way and made it a straightforward and also an exciting process to study abroad. Having the support of my Program Manager and Resident Coordinator eased a lot of stress and made the whole experience a lot less nerve-wracking. I am so glad I chose API for my study abroad experience and I can't imagine doing it with anyone else. I will definitely recommend API to others!"
API students in Dunedin have the opportunity to give back to their local community through various volunteer projects, including working at an eco-sanctuary.
