Student exchange and study abroad

If spending part of your study time overseas sounds exciting, you'll be interested in our international exchange programme – 360 International.

Broaden your horizons

The 360 International programme gives you the opportunity to spend a semester or a year of your programme overseas. There are more than 90 universities in 25 different countries involved.

Other 360 International options may include:

  • Field trips
  • Short courses
  • Internships.

The programme is available to both outbound (Auckland students wishing to be on an exchange) and inbound guest exchange students.

If you're a postgraduate student you may be able to study at an overseas partner university of equal standing and enjoy the benefits of the agreement.

You'll pay tuition fees only to the University of Auckland, be eligible for scholarships and bring credits you’ve earned home to your degree.
