In Australia, Bates has selected the premier institutions in each state as its study abroad sites plus one biology field study program.  In New Zealand, the four leading institutions have been selected.  Other programs exist in the region, but have been excluded because their duration, academic program, or sponsoring organization does not conform to the principles established by the Off-Campus Study Committee.  (Students may petition the Committee for approval of an unapproved program if they believe it provides a compelling academic advantage compared to the listed programs.)

Each program page is linked to its sponsor's web site where more detailed information is available and to student evaluations. To access these evaluations you must log in (lower right corner) with your Bates username and password.

The "number of participants" entry is per semester. Numbers often fluctuate from semester to semester and this entry is aimed at providing a general sense of program size.

The academic calendar at universities in Australia and New Zealand follows the seasons of the southern hemisphere with the "first semester" beginning after the southern hemisphere summer in mid-February and extending to late-June and the "second semester" running from mid-July to mid-November.

Approval of participation, including completion of the Bates registration form, is required to receive credit for study on any of these programs or universities.  Please see Darren Gallant or Jennifer Hyde, in the Center for Global Education in Roger Williams Hall, for further information and discussion.
