There are various opportunities for an overseas experience that fit within the inter-semester breaks through funded group programmes.
Update August 2021: Due to the ongoing pandemic and resulting ban on international staff and student-activity travel, we are not able to support overseas programmes at this time. Our partners and providers we work with are however offering several virtual programmes, including customised group programmes, intercultural programmes, leadership challenges and short courses, which offer a great opportunity to still add new skills and an international dimension to your CV. For more information on current programmes open for applications, check out our virtual opportunities.
Group programmes are immersive study tours which allow you to explore your academic interests in a global context, while travelling as part of a group. Being part of a group is a great way to delve into another culture for the first time, offering a supportive network with whom to share and process your experiences and growth.
360 International administers new group programmes each year during the New Zealand summer. Funding is also sourced from the Prime Minister’s Scholarships through the group application as an institution.
Funded group programmes are listed on Via TRM approximately by October for the upcoming New Zealand summer. Students must apply on Via TRM.
360 International manages the application process. As spaces are limited and not guaranteed, preference may be given to students who have not been awarded funding for similar opportunities in the past.
Please note that for Prime Minister’s Scholarship funded programmes, additional eligibility criteria may apply, including New Zealand citizenship or permanent residency. For more information, please see Prime Minister’s Scholarships for Asia and Latin America.
