The Ultimate Study Abroad Experience

Rugby lovers and collegiate players can take advantage of studying abroad – while still keeping their university coaches happy – as part of a unique program combining continued training with college credit and the chance to live in New Zealand. Created by the Auckland Rugby Union, the high performance program is renowned for providing rugby players with comprehensive strength assessments, personalized conditioning and nutrition programs, and medical care. Open to both current rugby players and those interested in the sport, coaches lead physical training with a focus on technical skill on the field while students also study more about the history, society and culture of New Zealand in the the country’s rugby center.

"Studying abroad is the best way to learn about another culture and yourself. In New Zealand, I constantly pushed myself to try something new and experience a different lifestyle. Studying abroad has taught me to be more open and adventurous. I attribute this newfound courage to the kindness of my new friends and TEAN. The staff members at TEAN are sincere in their efforts were genuinely concerned about my study abroad experience. They provided a good foundation for me to build upon and make my own. The cultural events and orientation made me feel comfortable about going out to explore more."
