Program Dates and Costs

Most students from North American colleges and universities will be able to transfer their existing financial aid arrangements to the program. Academic credits earned through the University of New Hampshire are transferable to home institutions in most cases. Please contact the EcoQuest Admissions Director at or submit a request online with any further questions concerning financial aid and academic credit transfer.

Impact of Covid-19

At present the New Zealand borders are closed to international visitors. Any people arriving (returning residents etc) currently have a compulsory 2 week quarantine period in a government managed isolation facility. At this stage we expect that when the borders do open to international students they will also be required to quarantine.

In order to minimise the impact on program time we plan to run the first week of the program on line during the second week of isolation.
