University of Auckland

On this program, UNC students directly enroll at the University of Auckland (UoA) for a semester or academic year for an opportunity to fully integrate into the academic, social, and cultural life at UoA. You may apply as an exchange or non-exchange student. No matter your classification, you will take courses alongside degree-seeking students, have access to student housing, and participate in all aspects of student life.


UoA was established in 1883, and with over 40,000 undergraduate and graduate students, it is the largest university in New Zealand. It is also consistently ranked the highest. The University is made up of eight faculties spread over six campuses, with the City campus being the largest and where exchange students from UNC will spend most of their time.

Auckland is located on the North Island of New Zealand.  With a population over one million, it is the largest and most populous urban area in the country; and with most major international corporations having an Auckland office, it is considered the economic capital of New Zealand. Auckland consistently ranks in the top 10 on “world’s most livable cities” indexes which score cities based on criteria such as safety, education, health care, culture, environment, political-economic stability, and public transportation.  Ethnic groups from all corners of the world have a presence in Auckland, making it by far the country's most cosmopolitan city.

Courses & Credits

UNC students at UoA are fully integrated into the university and have virtually the same range of courses to choose from as degree-seeking students. UNC students will choose most of their courses from the Faculty of Arts and/or the Faculty of Science.  Recommended fields of study include:  anthropology, biology, chemistry, computer science, earth sciences (geology), economics, environmental sciences, exercise and sport science, mathematics, psychology, and physics;  though many majors may find UoA to be a good academic fit. View UoA’s complete list of available subjects and the course catalog online.

Courses in this program are Transfer Credit.
Transfer Credit Courses (not taught by UNC Faculty): ACTION REQUIRED
  • You must submit the Credit Request Form to earn any credit for your time abroad.
  • You must earn the equivalent of a C or higher to earn any credit.
  • These courses will transfer back to UNC as “TREQ” credits.

University of Auckland offers several residence halls and university managed flats and apartments, many within walking distance to the City campus. Residence halls offer a greater sense of community and are usually popular among first-year students, whereas the flats and apartments offer a greater sense of independence and are popular for upperclassmen. View housing details on the accommodation website.
