This program has been cancelled.

Program Overview World Scholars - Auckland is an exclusive opportunity for students admitted to the University of Delaware World Scholars Program.

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.

Class of 2025 UD World Scholars will study abroad twice, including spring semester of their freshman year in Greece, Italy, Spain or New Zealand, and in any of 40+ destinations during their junior year.

Scholars heading to New Zealand will study abroad 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 will reside in a traditional residence hall with double rooms, shared baths & on-site dining hall. The meal plan includes three meals on weekdays & two meals on weekend days with ability to take away meals for day trips and excursions.

UOA's facilities include a walkable campus providing spaces to study or catch up with new friends. The Kate Edgar Information Commons is located at the heart of campus offering easy access to the on-campus health and counseling centers, a pharmacy, IT support services, the Munchy Mart, as well as an open air cafe and food carts. Across the street students can utilize the library and academic support services. The UOA international office is located in the Alfred Nathan House, just beyond, providing a walk-in center for questions or concerns. Surrounding these student service buildings are the academic classroom buildings where students can find faculty offices and classrooms.

As a research university the University of Auckland is committed to research based teaching.UOA has nearly 2,000 faculty including researchers, scholars and creative artists at the forefront of their areas of expertise, both nationally and internationally. In fact, many write the leading textbooks on the subjects they teach. UOA's faculty are committed to helping students get the most from their study through incorporating the latest findings and perspectives related to the discipline. Opportunities to learn in a variety of research-related ways include projects, case studies, problem-based learning or designing and conducting experiments. Outside of classes, students will be able to attend free research seminars, lectures and events to hear presentations about current research projects. The University of Auckland aims to assist students in developing the following capabilities: disciplinary knowledge and practice, critical thinking, problem solving, independence and integrity, social and environmental responsibility.

World Scholars will need to apply for a NZ student visa; which is free. IGS staff will assist students with the visa application process.

The Program Fee includes housing, medical insurance, some meals, airport transfers in Auckland for those traveling on the recommended flights, orientation week activities, numerous excursions, opening and closing celebrations and full access to all UOAs facilities and activities.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare. The program officially begins when students arrive in Auckland. For planning purposes only, airfare is estimated at $1,800. Students who wish to travel with the UD representative, must book the recommended flights.
