Overview
IES-Auckland
New Zealand is situated in the southern waters of the Pacific Ocean, with a population of over three million. Known by the Maori as Aotearoa, 'land of the long white cloud', New Zealand is celebrated for its breath-taking scenery, ranging from sparkling beaches in the north, to majestic mountain ranges and fjords in the south.

Auckland is New Zealand's largest city, with a wider metropolitan population of just over a million. The city is also known by Maori as Tamaki-makau-rau, 'Tamaki desired by thousands'.

The University of Auckland's campuses offer the attractions of city life combined with the appeal of outdoor living - close to cafes, restaurants, cinemas, parks, quality clothing and craft shopping, yet within 30 minutes of some of the world's most stunning beaches. A harbour city with a mild climate, Auckland provides opportunities to pursue all sorts of water sports and explore the many islands in its harbour, famed as tourist spots and bird sanctuaries.

Some of the program highlights are housing at the Railway Campus, a restored, vintage-era train station, weeklong orientation that includes excursions to Rotorua, and a subsidized weeklong field trip to one of the South Pacific islands such as Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, or the Cook Islands.
