This program fulfills the complete Foreign Culture requirement upon successful completion.  Please email Degree Review at after completion of the program to update your degree audit. (Students earning a B.A., B.F.A. or B.M degree in the College of Arts & Sciences cannot use study abroad to fulfill their foreign language/foreign culture requirement. See the university catalog for details.)

You may study at Massey University for either semester or the full Australian academic year. The first semester (our Spring) starts in mid February and ends in mid June. The second semester (our Fall) begins in early July and ends in mid November . (Note that the early dates for second semester may create difficulty for students using financial aid, since aid cannot be released until the first day of the UW-Eau Claire fall semester.) Exact dates will be available the semester prior to departure.
