Academic Overview

Students on this program will enroll in four courses at the University of Auckland.  (See Four Course Policy information below.)  Students will be fully integrated into the New Zealand academic system and take courses alongside local students and other international students.  Past students have enjoyed courses related to Maori culture, politics and society, but Business and Science courses are also available.  Please review the "Course Restriction" page of IFSA-Butler's website before applying to this program.

SJU Four Course Policy
It is understood that Saint Joseph's students who participate on the IFSA-Butler: University of Auckland program are only permitted to take four, 4-credit courses abroad, but will only receive three SJU credits per course.  Due to the fact that this may impact a student’s graduation course requirements, Saint Joseph's University will waive one free elective for the student upon their return, provided they meet the following conditions:
  • The student must have one free elective remaining over and above the ones taken with the study abroad program.
  • The student will still have at least 120 credits at time of graduation.
  • The student MUST remain enrolled as a full-time student according to the study abroad program’s requirements.
  • The student is obliged to successfully complete all coursework on the study abroad program and pass each of the four courses taken abroad.
Students participating on this program will be required to sign a Four Course Policy Form at the time of application.  If you do not have a free elective available to waive, please contact the CIP to discuss your options. NZ1
