    • Credit transfer is ultimately determined by the student’s home university. 
  • Course Level Recommendations
    ISA offers course level recommendations for the courses listed below. Please note that the course level recommendations are based on the University of Auckland (UA) course codes. All UA course codes consist of a four, five or six-letter abbreviation detailing the discipline of the course (such as ECON for Economics), as well as a three-digit number. The first digit of the course code represents the level of the course. Codes beginning with the numbers 2 or 3 represent stage II and stage III advanced-level undergraduate courses. ISA recommends 200- and 300-level courses as upper division. These ISA recommendations are intended to facilitate the determination of course equivalencies by advisors and credential evaluators at participants' U.S. home institutions.
  • Online Courses
    ISA does not recommend that students sign up for online courses through their host university. If enrolling in an online course is necessary for you to meet your degree requirements, you may only enroll in one online class. It is your responsibility to confirm with your home university that you will receive credit for online courses taken through your host university.

Funding Your ISA Program

As an ISA participant, you have the opportunity to apply for scholarships and grants that can be applied directly to assist with your study abroad programs.

Housing

Living in ISA housing will give you the opportunity to experience aspects of the Kiwi lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor to New Zealand. Housing in Auckland is centrally located near the main shopping and entertainment district as well as many parks. All ISA Auckland housing options are either within walking distance of both campuses or conveniently located to public transit routes. Travel times to the various university buildings generally range between five to 20 minutes depending on housing and class locations. With an open-mind and flexibility, the experience of living in another culture can be highly rewarding.

Housing is provided on all ISA programs in New Zealand at an additional cost. Apartment accommodation at the University of Auckland starts at $4,700, without meals (subject to change).

Apartment Without Meals

Apartments are a great housing option if you are seeking independence during your time abroad but also want the support of the university. You will live with other ISA students in a single gendered apartment with two single-occupancy bedrooms, common living space, kitchen, a shared bathroom, and a balcony. Linens, towels, and WiFi are included, laundry facilities and a gym are available on-site, and weekly housekeeping is provided.

Independent Housing

You may elect to secure housing independently. If you select this option you will be responsible for your own housing during the program and will forgo any ISA assistance for housing matters.

Excursions

THERE’S MORE TO DISCOVER WITH ISA

ISA excursions allow you to explore the diverse, distinct, and gorgeous landscape of New Zealand that you may not have the opportunity to visit on your own. While abroad, you will have the chance to go on a multi-day trip (the ISA Bridging Cultures Program at the beginning of your program), a weekend trip, and two day trips to the following destinations.

Auckland and Rotorua & Bridging Cultures Program

Kick-off your semester abroad with ISA during our four-day Bridging Cultures Program (BCP) in exciting Auckland and Rotorua. The BCP integrates our ISA on-site orientation with exciting activities aimed at introducing Kiwi culture, helping you define your study abroad goals, and encouraging you to meet other students. Activities include visit to Hobbiton, a traditional ceremony and hangi dinner at a Maori marae (meeting house), a visit to the Wai-o-tapu Thermal Wonderland hot springs and a dip in Green and Blue lakes, a stop at Hamilton Gardens, the opportunity to learn the world-famous Haka, and most importantly, an informative, interactive, and memorable start to your study abroad experience.

Coromandel Peninsula & Cathedral Cove

The Coromandel Peninsula is renowned for its natural beauty, rural farmland, misty rainforests and pristine golden beaches. You will have the opportunity to kayak through sea caves, interact with the local marine life, and dig your own hot spring pool at Hot Water Beach -this is an experience you will truly never forget!

Raglan & Waitomo Caves

While discovering the Waikato region of the North Island, you will have the opportunity to visit Bridal Veil Falls followed by a surf lesson at Raglan. You will also spend time exploring Waitomo’s famous glow worm caves, limestone formations, and crystal tapestries.

Waiheke Island

Waiheke Island is a true island paradise just an easy 40 minute ferry ride from downtown Auckland. With abundant natural wonders to explore, it is a haven of beautiful vineyards, olive groves, and beaches. You will have the opportunity participate in a Zip Lining Adventure tour which offers flying fox zip-lines and an eco-immersive forest walk, followed by free time to explore the island!
