Ready to Go Study Abroad

Whether you’re still deciding on courses or packing your bags, you can always contact our staff to help you along. Yes there is paperwork and yes there are decisions to make around course selection, housing preferences, dates, travel necessities, registration, budgeting and more. Our staff can walk you through it all.

Upon applying to Arcadia, our enrollment counselors are in regular contact with you about the status of your application. Program managers send out extensive information that will prepare you to go abroad, including information on culture, politics, history and the local higher education system.

Once you arrive in New Zealand, our staff will meet you and your orientation program will begin. The orientation will help you settle in academically, practically, culturally and socially.

First! Home school arrangements

  • Let your study abroad advisor know that you are taking part in an Arcadia University program
  • Cancel any housing or meal contracts for the time you’ll be away and make arrangements to reactivate them when you return.
  • If registration for next year's courses on your home campus will take place while you are abroad, ensure that the appropriate arrangements are made with your registrar or study abroad advisor.
  • Some students enrolled on semester programs decide when they are overseas to stay for the full year. This is possible. While home college approval for continued study can be obtained when you are abroad, it will be much easier to make the necessary arrangements and receive preliminary approval before you leave the U.S.
