COVID-19 update: overseas study suspended

The global pandemic has had a big impact on international travel, making AUT’s international student exchange programme uncertain for 2021. We hope that we can begin sending students abroad again next year, but this will depend on government advice for safe travel overseas.

If you're interested in going on a student exchange fill in the form below and we'll contact you as soon as we have more information.

“AIESEC provides an opportunity for young people to work or volunteer abroad in non-familiar environments. This allows them to step outside their comfort zone and expand their worldviews, while contributing to the community in which they are working. Living such experiences enables people to build a better understanding of how to communicate and capitalise on diversity in our increasingly connected world.”
