International customised programmes

Achieve your vision of internationalising your students’ education at a world-ranked university, while they experience the culture of one of the world’s most diverse and vibrant countries.

We collaborate and offer transformative, high quality, customised study opportunities to meet your students’ needs.

Design your programme


The length of the programme is entirely customisable. We do recommend January – February so you can make the most of New Zealand’s beautiful summer.


Courses may be taught by faculty from the University of Auckland, guest lecturers, external subject or cultural specialists, jointly with your faculty, or a combination of them all.
Coursework may be examined and assessed by University of Auckland faculty with credit awarded by the student’s home university.

Experiential Learning

Enhance your programme with an internship placement or an out-of-class immersive cultural experience for your students. This is highly encouraged to enrich the programme’s learning outcomes. Our team on the ground have the experience and expertise in arranging excursions in and around Auckland and will develop a suitable plan for your students.


Accommodation to suit the specific needs and budget of the group will be arranged. This may be University dormitory accommodation, private hostel or lodge accommodation close to the University campus, or homestay. Catering may or may not be included depending on programme requirements.
