Dunedin: University of Otago through Arcadia

Smaller university in a college town, good for ES and Music. Lots of outdoors activities. Earning a 3.0 gpa is a challenge without serious attention to coursework. Cooler setting. Paper = US course. 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 enr: 20,000; # of Americans: 700
Search for courses ("papers"). Course selection: 72 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. Paper = US course.

Many Bates students; students seeking greater distance from Bates might want to consider the other NZ universities or the University of Tasmania in Australia. Housing mainly in university housing with international and NZ students (Kiwi buddy system). Total enr: 22,000; # of Americans: 700.
