Student exchange - to New Zealand

Our Student Exchange programme offers the opportunity to enjoy another culture, gain life skills, broaden your employment opportunities and live the overseas experience, without interruption to your studies.

About Student Exchange

If your home institution is a partner institution and has an exchange agreement with us you can study here and pay tuition fees to your home institution. Depending on the agreement in place, there may be other costs you will need budget for such as accommodation and textbooks.

Nomination

You will be nominated to be considered for the Student Exchange Programme by your institution's Exchange Coordinator. Eligible degree level students choose to do either one or two semesters with us.

Depending on the agreement in place your study may be credited to your degree in your home country.

Accommodation

A variety of accommodation options include:

  • staying with a host family (homestay)
  • designated student hostels
  • apartments or student flats.

About Study Abroad

If your home institution does not have an exchange agreement with us but is a partner institution you can study here as a Study Abroad student usually for a period of one semester.

You will pay your tuition fees directly to us. As a study abroad student from a partner institution there may be partial fee scholarships available to you. Please enquire directly to our Student Exchange and Study Abroad Coordinator by email: exchanges@ara.ac.nz
