Being alone in a foreign country for 4 months is tough but totally worth it - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
I gain much from this experience in a way that I really can't describe in words. My study abroad experience has change my future plans by seriously considering moving to New Zealand and being a doctor for a rugby team, and my plans before was going to be an anesthesiologist, but now I am in a crossroad. - Suffolk University View Entire Review

About

Semester on the North Island, New Zealand, will connect you to one of the world’s most extraordinary cultures. Wellington is unique because it is the business, commercial, and political capital of the country, yet it is small enough to walk almost everywhere. And the atmosphere is sophisticated, yet down-to-earth and youthful. Victoria University of Wellington is widely regarded as one of the strongest universities in the Southern Hemisphere. It is internationally recognized for its broad range of courses, diverse student body, and elite faculty members. With clubs and organizations as diverse as the student body, you’ll find something that suits your interests and make new international friends in the process. Travel the countryside with those new friends and see all that New Zealand has to offer – from mountains, to beaches (both white and black sand), to excellent hiking spots, and natural hot water beaches. Like adventure sports? New Zealand has been thought of as the adventure capital of the world – go rafting, tramping (hiking), surfing, skydiving, or even bungee jump with the world’s original bungee jump company.
