Program Description:

About University of Auckland

The University of Auckland was established in 1883 and has grown into an international center of learning and academic excellence. The University is situated in the heart of the cosmopolitan city of Auckland and provides an exciting and stimulating environment for 40,000 students, including 6,000 international students from 110 countries.
Auckland (pop. 1.8 million) is New Zealand's largest city and is known by its Maori name as Tamaki-makau-rau, "desired by thousands". The University of Auckland’s campus offers the attractions of city life combined with the appeal of outdoor living - close to cafes, restaurants, cinemas, parks, shopping, yet within 30 minutes of some of the world's most stunning beaches and landscapes.

Admissions Requirements: 
Courses in Drama, Music, Performance, Theater, and Visual Arts may require audition tapes or portfolios for review as part of the application process. These areas of study are very competitive and enrollment limits may be in effects, including availability to majors only.

Housing & Board: 
Students live in university housing, with residence hall or apartment style options. Students have access to a shared kitchen facility and prepare their own meals (self-catered). Board is not paid to Wheaton.

Budget Information:
Students studying abroad will continue to pay Wheaton tuition. Students are not charged Wheaton room and board, or the Wheaton technology, laundry, or student activities fees while on a study abroad program. Wheaton will, in turn, pay the program for all tuition and academic fees and international insurance. Students will pay costs directly to their study abroad university. Please note that this may or may not include a meal plan. Students will book and pay for their own flights.

Fees billed by Wheaton will be charged to students on their regular Wheaton College student account during regular billing cycles (July/December). 

Federal, state, Wheaton need-based and merit scholarships will be applied to these charges for Wheaton-approved programs. Students must consult with the Office of Student Financial Services (SFS) for a comprehensive review of their aid. If a student receives aid beyond the cost of Wheaton tuition, they can request a refund through SFS. This can in turn be used to pay their study abroad university for room and board charges.

Please do your research as housing and meal costs vary greatly from program to program. This Budget Worksheet can help you estimate the total costs of your program. Refer to your university’s visiting or international student website for an overview of all additional expenses, which may include visas, international cell phones, and discretionary expenses.
