The Ultimate Study Abroad Experience
Study abroad in Dunedin, known as New Zealand's college town, with a total population of 120,000 people, including 20,000 students. Dunedin is located on a beautiful harbor, renowned for its incredible wildlife, and only a few hours from Queenstown, considered by many as the adventure capital of the world - making this an ideal environment to study abroad for the outdoorsy student. Study abroad in Dunedin and find yourself sipping on great coffee in an eclectic city cafe, before heading off hiking or surfing only minutes from the city center. The combination of a student-centered town, with a great artsy vibe, combined with the accessibility to the incredible scenery and adventure activities of New Zealand's South Island, provides for an amazing study abroad semester or year in New Zealand.

"My experience studying at The University of Otago was a more enriching, thrilling, and overall life-changing experience than I ever could have imagined. This could not have been possible with the provided by TEAN, whose staff—both at home and abroad—was there every step of the way to facilitate the process. I embraced the affable, genuine Kiwi culture, while also growing as an individual as I learned to live on the opposite side of the world. I left New Zealand heartbroken to say goodbye, but also more fulfilled than ever by having my eyes opened to the adventure and excitement provided by a semester abroad."
