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 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 Wellington programs. All excursions and cultural events are subject to change.
API New Zealand students will begin their program with a 2.5-day arrival orientation in their host city of Wellington. 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.
Go beyond the city, experiencing Wellington’s coast line from above as you’re taken on an off-road sightseeing tour along Wellington’s mountainous west coast. After travelling through Terawhiti Station (New Zealand’s largest wind farm), you’ll get to experience spectacular views of the South Island and Wellington’s leaning lighthouse before heading down to the ocean to visit a native New Zealand Fur Seal Colony.
Matiu/Somes Island is a tranquil retreat for wildlife and visitors alike. Maori have occupied this island for generations. In more recent times, Matiu/Somes Island has served as a human and animal quarantine station, an internment camp, and a military defense position. Students will take a ferry boat from Wellington Harbour and have a unique opportunity to volunteer on many important projects, such as assisting with the reintroduction of native plants on the islands.

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.

API students at Massey University will receive 12-16 U.S. semester credits by enrolling in a wide variety of courses with Kiwis and other international students in one of New Zealand’s most comfortable and cosmopolitan cities. Located in the capital, Massey Wellington is known as the “Creative Campus” with comprehensive offerings in the creative arts. The College of Business is both AACSB and AMBA accredited.
Introductory courses are called 100-level courses; subsequent years or semesters are considered 200- and 300-level courses. 400-level courses are considered at the graduate level. Most courses are single-semester and are worth 15 points (credits). Students will enroll in 4 courses per semester for a total of 60 points. One 15 point course is generally equivalent to 3-4 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 at the discretion of the student’s home institution and should be verified in advance.
