IFSA-Butler University of Auckland

This program is not running in spring 2021. Please contact Jordan Zilla for more information. 

Through IFSA-Butler, students have the opportunity to study at the University of Auckland and take courses across a wide-range of disciplines, and IFSA offers additional on-site support. The University is located in Auckland, and students will enjoy the bustling city, which will serve as their campus for the semester.

The University

Founded in 1883, the University of Auckland is the country’s largest university with over 40,000 students, nearly 10,000 of whom graduate annually. The main campus is in the heart of Auckland city. Auckland’s harbor setting, magnificent beaches and verdant bush make it a great place to study and work, while the University’s close proximity to New Zealand’s major business city enables staff and students to rub shoulders with leading practitioners in their field.

The Setting

Auckland is the most populous urban area in the country, and it is located on the North Island in between to major harbors. It is home to the Maori population and culture, and it combines a rich history with vibrant city life and beautiful scenery. 



On the IFSA-Butler program, students will enroll in a full course-load at the University of Auckland, which is 60 Auckland "units" (typically four courses.) The 60 units is the equivalent of four Princeton credits. Courses can be found in the areas of the Humanities, Engineering, Social Sciences, STEM, and more. Check out the Auckland course catalog for a list of all courses. Note that what we call "courses" are referred to as "subjects" at Auckland.

IFSA-Butler also provides its students with volunteer and internship opportunities while abroad. Please note that if you are interested in participating in an internship, it must be in addition to a full course-load. Princeton does not award academic credit for internships. You can read more about these opportunities on the IFSA website.


Applicants must have a B average for the fall and spring semesters of the academic year preceding the year or semester abroad.
