Spaniard experience

9/10

I'm 21-year-old student from the
North Spain and I've been at the UoA for one semester. Since this is my second exchange and I wanted to travel out of Europe I chose New Zealand and couldn't be more lucky to get selected. The education system is the best I've get the chance to study in. Furthermore life at campus is awesome as there are activities everyday. If you are thinking of coming make sure you apply for the university accommodation at the halls so you can get easily involved in the student social life since the very beginning and make friends!

How can this program be improved?

Encouraging students to get to know other exchanges students at the beginning of every semester at some events. Provide tailored accommodation advice before arrival.

A unique experience

8/10

Spending a semester in this University has been such a great experience, allowing to meet a bunch of amazing people and studying in a complete different manner. I had the chance to experience both engineering lectures and marketing ones, opening my mind to a lot of brand new fascinating subjects. I also had the opportunity to join the student abroad society which organized so many amazing trips, events and parties! I would recommend everybody to join it. I really enjoyed studying here as I felt I was really part of the university and not different from any other student.

Enjoyment

10/10

I have visited a lot of places in NZ such as South island and some beautiful island like waiheki and rangitoto. And also I've met a lot of kindness people including kiwi and exchange students..
definitely this study abroad experience was unforgettable experience for my life. I really appreciate everyone in terms of alot of things.
As for sad experience,I can't work on group work well with others. But I realized that it is the same in the all over the world,though

How can this program be improved?

It's perfect for me!!

Semester in Auckland

9/10

Came here from Ireland, didn’t really know what to expect, have thoroughly enjoyed my time here, it was a very smooth transfer from my Home University to UoA all the staff, and lecturers were very accommodating. The accomodation team were super supportive in helping us to settle in an make friends quickly by organising several social events. The one thing that I found difficult in the befginning personally here was to integrate with kiwi students in some of my classes, If there was some way of speeding up the process of becoming friends with the people from here it would be great.
Overall great experience 10/10

Best experience

10/10

It was the best experience ever :)
Wonderful nature and friendly people!
It was my first time to live in a foreign country for such a long time.
First I was very coufused. I could not listen and speak English very well. However, people in New Zealand are very helpful and kind. So I could be used to living here. I really like here.

I highly reccommend studying in this university.
