Rugby Sevens Study Abroad

Rugby Sevens Study Abroad

This programme has been created for students currently studying for a bachelor’s degree at a university or college in the United States.

It's designed to have the courses you complete in New Zealand credited back into your home bachelor’s degree programme.

The academic component of the programme has been specifically designed to complement your rugby sevens training, and is provided by the Sport and Recreation faculty of Bay of Plenty Polytechnic.

The high performance rugby sevens development and training programme is timetabled around your academic studies and will occur daily before and after your classes. Training will be executed by world-class rugby sevens coaches with extensive national and international playing and coaching experience. 

Students enroll in this programme for the USA fall semester as this coincides with the rugby sevens training schedule in New Zealand.

Rugby sevens players who are not currently studying for a university degree in the USA but wish to take advantage of this 17 week training and study opportunity may also be eligible for selection onto the Rugby Sevens Study Abroad programme.
