Overall Experience
Most of what I learned was just about my own independence and many things that can't be put into words. I just feel changed, more responsible, capable, open to new experiences, and addicted to seeing more of the world. 100% worthwhile and am counting down the days until I can buy a plane ticket back! - Oklahoma State University - Stillwater View Entire Review
Was definitely the best choice of my life and i do not regret a minuet of it - University of Maine at Orono View Entire Review
I learned how to live on my own. I learned how to advocate for myself and not depend on my professors for guidance or friends for guidance. I also became a new me through exploring new things I like to do such as camping and hiking and cooking. It was totally worthwhile! I will never forget my experience! - Bethel University View Entire Review

About

Spend your semester or academic year in the exciting and modern city of Wellington with AIFS. You’ll earn up to 16 credits through a variety of courses studying at Victoria University of Wellington. Courses are taught in English.

Live in a Residence Hall with AIFS students, international students, and students from New Zealand. Students share a kitchen, living room and bathroom, and internet access is provided.

You’ll enjoy cultural and social activities such as guided city walks, a cable car ride over the city, sporting events like rugby or cricket, and a Lord of the Rings Tour. A 3-day excursion to Rotorua is included, and an optional 1-credit Pacific Studies Program in Suva, Fiji is offered prior to the start of the program.

AIFS in New Zealand offers a unique academic experience with the optional Pacific Studies Program in Fiji, giving students an introduction to the history and culture of the Pacific Region. Victoria University offers Victoria PLUS, a service learning oriented certificate program that includes workshops and seminars.

Located at the southern tip of New Zealand’s North Island, between a beautiful harbor and rolling green hills, the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Wellington is the political, cultural and creative capital of New Zealand. Wellington offers a range of outdoor and cultural activities: hike, surf the southern beaches, attend sporting events at Westpac Stadium, or visit the many music venues, theaters, art galleries and museums in the city. With more restaurants and cafés per capita than New York City and a lively calendar of festivals and sporting events, there is always something going on in Wellington.
