Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

12-16-semester credits

API students at the University of Auckland will be able to enroll in a variety of subject areas with both local “Kiwis” and other international students from over 85 countries.

COURSE INFORMATION

Courses in New Zealand are commonly referred to as “papers.” Introductory papers are called 100-level papers; subsequent years or semesters are considered 200- and 300-level papers. 400-level papers are considered at the graduate level. Most papers are single-semester and are worth 15 points (credits). Minimum full-time enrollment at U of A includes 60 points (i.e. 4 papers per semester). One 15 point paper is generally equivalent to 3-4 U.S. semester credits or 4-6 quarter units. Given that point values vary, the way in which credits completed abroad will transfer to a student’s home campus will be at the discretion of the student’s home institution and should be verified in advance.

TRANSCRIPTS

API students receive their transcript from the University of Auckland upon completion of their program.
