Veritas Dunedin, New Zealandisalogo

Program Overview
This program is offered in collaboration with Veritas Christian Study Abroad at the University of Otago in Dunedin. Dunedin is located on the South Island on the Otago Peninsula and is often referred to as the Edinburgh of New Zealand, due to its Scottish roots. The University of Otago is one of the top universities in New Zealand. Veritas students will be partnered with a Mission Mentor who will be available to offer support in a variety of ways. Veritas is a division of International Studies Abroad (ISA). You will be attending classes with ISA students as well as Veritas students.

All courses are taught in English, thus there are a large variety of courses available to Veritas students, including many STEM courses. Veritas students will take courses along side other ISA students, New Zealand students and other international students. Veritas students are required to take a Comparative Religions course or an International Missions/Sevice-Learning Practicum (1-3 credits).

The program offers a variety of opportunities for travel including trips to Auckland, Queensland (the New Zealand capital), the Catlins (Cathedral lakes and wildlife observing), the North Otago Region and Lake Tekapo.
