city:
country:
region:
Comments:

Smaller city and university with a park-like campus; highly ranked geology & philosophy departments; Forestry School; lots of outdoor activities. Arcadia program costs $5,000+ extra (not addressed by Bates financial aid). Many students have positive evaluations of Arcadia services: pre-departure info; on-site orientation; day and weekend excursions; on-site support staff. Total enrollment: 13,000; # of Americans: 300
Search the Course Catalog. Course selection: 60 points per semester; at least half the course load above the first year level. 100-level courses = Bates 100 level; 200-300 level courses = Bates 200 level and above.

Special Opportunities:

Geology: Research and field work throughout NZ. Winter JSA preferable. Fewer Americans in Geo classes.
