Overall Experience
I learned more about the Maori people and their culture which was really really interesting and I think very valuable. I also got a lot of experience in field ecology. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
research experience, field work exposure, and it was worthwhile - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learnt a ton about geology (which is what I came for) that I would never have been able to learn in a classroom from field camp and I learnt a lot about New Zealand and the South Pacific which was a region I had never been to before or known much about prior to coming here. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
In terms of being a geology major, this program is fantastic. Field camp was very full of learning and stressful at times, but worth it. The semester studies were decent, especially the semester long independent project. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned a lot during field camp but the semester was poorly planned. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I gained a knowledge of New Zealand culture and geology. I also learned a lot about myself and what I am capable of and how much I can withstand. I learned I can support myself and live abroad successfully. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained confidence in my traveling abilities and my accomplishments as a research scientist. Greater appreciation for my home and the programs available to me here. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
New Zealand life, history, geology, etc. Prepared me for thesis work and grad school. Everything was probably worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned independence, open-mindedness, and confidence in myself. I learned how to look in the world in the eyes of a Kiwi, which really allowed me to view things in perspective. I gained great field an lab skills and a knowledge of the ecology and geology of New Zealand. I met amazing people of all backgrounds. - Barnard College View Entire Review

Very worthwhile. I learned so much about my area of study, and also about living and traveling on my own, far away from home - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I gained lovely friends, a new appreciation for a part of the world I knew nothing about, a TON of geology know-how, and seven months of pure adrenaline and fantastic memories! Loved it! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Independence, appreciation of good academics - Middlebury College View Entire Review

I learned a LOT of geology, and I learned how to deal with unpredictability. Field camp, as rigorous as it was, also taught me that I can do pretty much anything I set my mind to. It wasn't always fun, but it was a good lesson. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Frontiers Abroad: New Zealand Earth Systems
I can learn to do things like longboard, rock climb, hitch hike, yoga---whatever. It's easy to become bogged down in who you think you are, but you're never truly stuck--you can always shake it up. - Barnard College View Entire Review
A ton about the Maori Culture and Geology, also that no one works as hard or cares as much as Wellesley students. YES - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I had so many amazing experiences traveling and hiking in the incredible country that is New Zealand! I was also able to push myself academically in my major which was somewhat unexpected but definitely great. It was one of the most worthwhile experiences I've ever had! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
