Quaint Christchurch awaits the study abroad student with a quiet dignity, much like the English villages it is modeled after. At the heart of the city center, Christchurch Cathedral's Gothic architecture is a stunning landmark and the perfect place to enjoy an aerial view of this picturesque city. At night, the "Garden City," sheds its more refined nature and plays host to bustling hotspots in its more obscure laneways. At the entry point to the truly magical South Island of New Zealand, you're never far from some of the world's most stunning natural scenery and corresponding high-adrenaline activities. Study abroad in Christchurch and be prepared for the city and the South Island of New Zealand to take your breath away.

"My experience studying abroad with TEAN was nothing short of amazing. What makes TEAN unique is that it’s more than just a program that allows people to study at a university in another country, it’s a complete package that offers an experience that’s much more than that. TEAN organizes activities and trips that help you engage with different cultures, have a great time, and meet a lot of cool people. After participating in this program, I feel like I appreciate learning so much more because TEAN makes learning experiences so much fun. I think that their take on study abroad helped me become more excited about the whole study abroad experience and, ultimately, take more away from this semester."
