New Zealand: Massey University, Palmerston North


As the flagship campus for Massey University, the Manawatu campus in Palmerston North has a student population of nine thousand and is located in a beautiful park-like environment, offering a university lifestyle like no other. At Manawatu, you will have a variety of subjects to choose from, including agriculture, computer science and engineering, math and science, and social sciences. Outside of the academics, you can explore the country and try a new outdoor activity, like zorbing or surfing. As part of the new summer program, you can spend two weeks touring the country and then spend four weeks on an internship tailored for agriculture, agribusiness, environmental science, and wildlife management majors. You will have the opportunity to boost your resume while you explore New Zealand and earn academic credit.


This vibrant, young person's city, with the highest student population per head in New Zealand, offers affordable accommodation, great bars and restaurants, live theatre, sporting centers, and indoor pools. For the adventurous, there are challenging mountain bike tracks, bungee-jumping, river kayaking, and equestrian facilities.
