Program Description

The University of Delaware World Scholars Program is a four-year program for internationalizing a student's undergraduate career. Choosing from a wide range of majors, World Scholars are supported in their studies with internationally-focused academics, experiences, and opportunities that will prepare them to live and work anywhere in the world. UD World Scholars study abroad twice, beginning with the first semester of their first year in Greece, Italy, Spain or New Zealand, and in any of 40+ destinations during their junior year.

Scholars heading to New Zealand will spend their freshman fall at our partner institution, the University of Auckland (UOA). Stretching across 40 acres in the centre of the city of Auckland, the University campus is integrated into the heart of the city life. Harbour views and nearby parks provide a scenic study setting, just minutes’ walk from the city centre’s shopping and entertainment district. With a population of 1.5 million, 40% of whom were born overseas, city life in Auckland is a blend of cultures, cuisines and nature. Considered one of the top "most livable cities in the world," Auckland has two harbours and 3,700kms of coastline, and is the warmest and one of the sunniest of New Zealand’s cities.

UD World Scholars live in an on-campus residence hall within walking distance of classes, University amenities, the dining hall, and city center. Scholars reside on the same floors in single rooms equipped with private baths, mini-refrigerators and microwave ovens, and will have an upperclass residence assistant living on the same floor with them.

The Program Fee includes housing, dining, international insurance, select excursions and activities abroad, as well as resources to support student success provided by UD and our partner institutions, including full access to all UOA facilities and activities. Previous excursions included a day trip to Rotorua and a weekend trip to the Bay of Islands.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare or costs associated with obtaining a "fee-paying student visa". For planning purposes only, airfare is estimated at $1,800. Students who wish to travel with a University of Delaware representative must book the recommended flights found in the /mybluehenhome portal.

ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Before making the decision to study abroad, prospective students with disabilities should be aware that accessibility and accommodation in some study abroad locations may differ from the United States. Review these questions with World Scholar Program leadership to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
Program Courses
Students must enroll in all credit-bearing courses for a grade. Only the UNIV (zero credit) course may be taken pass/fail. Audit registration is not permitted on UD Travel Study. Please refer to the University Catalog to verify requirements and prerequisites
All students must enroll in at least 12 credits, as well as the 0-credit UNIV course.
All courses are taught in English and meet UD graduation requirements.

Scholars will select their courses with the assistance of their academic advisors. Courses should be shared with World Scholars Program leadership in advance of the application deadline for review. If course equivalency requests are needed, these will be submitted by World Scholars Program leadership.

After PDO, NZ Scholars will be responsible for online registration of their UOA courses. Please note that students must register for a lecture and tutorial section for each course selected. See additional requirements for language study, including submission of UOA Language Declaration form.

Junior World Scholars will be responsible for registering for classes in UDSIS after their registration date begins. Scholars are expected to make any drop/add requests in UDSIS on their own and to communicate with World Scholars Program leadership to make changes to courses at the University of Auckland.

Note that course offerings are subject to change. A final list will be available in late spring.
