Students will also participate in a 5-week field camp traveling throughout New Zealand prior to the start of the academic semester, then continue their research with an independent project while studying at the University. In addition to their research class, students will take three other courses of their choosing. Students live in an apartment-style complex across from campus. Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island, with a variety of activities such as hiking, rock climbing, skiing, movies, concerts and art exhibitions. The city center is just a quick 15 minutes away from campus.
