Kia Ora (hello)
There will be a New Zealand 2022 Study Abroad Interest meeting on Thursday January 21st from 7-9pm.
Join Zoom Meeting
All majors in CANR are welcome and we usually accept students from many CANR majors. The focus of our program is sustainable food production, preservation of native habitats and resources (soil and water) on farms, and efficient, pasture-based food production. Our program includes 7 cr hrs of coursework and many, many excursions to some of the most beautiful and productive stations (ranches/farms) on the South Island of New Zealand. The field trips to stations are complimented with cultural and historical trips to museums, the International Antarctic Centre, a wildlife rehabilitation center, and botanical gardens. Our home-base for the month is Lincoln University where we stay in their residence halls and use the dining hall for our meals! I will attach the PDF file of our slide show from the first interest meeting in case you were unable to attend.
We expect applications to open around February 11th (applications are on the UD study abroad webpage) and although we take a fairly large group (usually ~ 35 students), the program usually fills quickly, so we suggest you apply early.
Since this is a ZOOM meeting, please feel free to include your parents/sponsors so that they can ask all their questions too!
Of course, at any time, COVID could result in program cancellation and we are quite certain that NZ will require us all to have proof of COVID vaccination to enter the country. But we are preparing as we usually do – with the assumption that we will be able to take you all to one of the most beautiful places on earth next January!
Ma Te Wa (until we meet again),
