Homes are available both with meals included and without. There are 24/7 dedicated and professional staff available for all residents. There will be a team living at the student accommodations, which welcomes students, helps them if necessary, creates a safe environment and generally provides the environment with a social and fun atmosphere.

It is important to note that the residence areas are smoke-free and some of them are non-alcoholic. Residents are responsible for cleaning their own student housing and, of course, cleaning up after themselves in the common areas.

What the students say

"This program is so unique from your typical study abroad. It allowed us to see so much of New Zealand instead of just remaining at one university. We spent the entire first two weeks of the program traveling from the south island all the way up to the north island. During this time, we stayed in ten different places and visited farms, national parks, wineries, and wildlife centers." - Maddie L.

I was looking for a freemover stay abroad through Uniclub and I got some of the best service I have experienced. They took care of all the practicalities, and removed almost all the hassle of work it can be to apply for an exchange stay.

I am going to Australia for a semester, and before finding Uniclub the whole application seemed impossible. These guys are simply the best. They have the right answer for literally every question that you have. They are helpful, quick, with excellent service

Uniclub and Deni Isic, get my absolute warmest recommendation! I had a dream of coming to Japan that seemed distant and unmanageable, but Deni and the rest of Uniclub have helped me through the whole process.

I have just returned from my exchange stay in Ireland, which would not have been possible if it were not for Uniclub. If you are looking for an exchange as a freemover, then I can not recommend UniClub enough!
