Study abroad and study exchange

Study abroad and study exchange

Students who are interested in travelling while they complete their AUT degree can complete one or two semesters at one of Auckland University of Technology’s partner universities with an international study exchange.

Studying abroad can change students’ lives and they will have the opportunity to meet new people, immerse themselves in another culture, as well as obtain international experience. They can also cross credit the points they receive to their degree at AUT as well as continue their studies when they return to New Zealand.

Some reasons why students do an exchange are:

  • They will learn a lot, both personally and academically
  • They will return to Auckland University of Technology with more self-confidence as well as maturity.
  • They will add value to their degrees by experiencing various teaching styles as well as taking different courses.

By studying abroad, students can also pick study at AUT for a semester or a year in their chosen major, or a different discipline. Students can cross-credit points they earn towards their home degree and gain international experience during study.

Students can choose to:

  • Take up four courses in a semester
  • Take the study-internship option (which is two papers and a supervised internship paper).

AUT will provide students a unique Kiwi welcome to the university and to New Zealand and offer support with settling into study and life there. Students can expect to make many friends, learn more about New Zealand’s unique culture and enjoy wonderful scenery.
