AUT UNIVERSITY – The University for the Changing World

AUT is New Zealand’s second largest and fastest growing university. We reflect the changing world, and emerging environments and industries. Established relationships with employers and professionals make our teaching and research relevant to current and future industry, which shows in our 95% graduate employment rate.
AUT prides itself on its high lecturer-to-student ratio, student support services and on-campus facilities, including on-line library resources, entertainment and sports. 
We are accredited by the New Zealand Government, internationally recognised and globally competitive.  AACSB accreditation ranks our School of Business in the top 5% globally.

Our students:
AUT University is committed to internationalisation and welcomes over 4000 students worldwide from 90 different countries.  Support services are available inclusive of health services, orientation, accommodation placement, academic support and student mentors.

Location and campuses:
We are located in Auckland, New Zealand, with three well-positioned campuses – one central city, one on the North Shore across the Auckland Harbour Bridge and one in Manukau, South Auckland.
Auckland is ranked third in the world’s top cities to live and work in. * It is located in the north of the North Island and is the largest and most culturally diverse of New Zealand’s cities, with a population of more than 1.4 million people – 27% born in other countries.  The city is surrounded by two harbours – the Waitemata and the Manukau – and is often referred to as the ‘City of Sails’ due to Aucklanders love for water sports and the sea.

AUT offers over 250 undergraduate and postgraduate programmes through the Faculties of Applied Humanities, Business & Law, Design & Creative Technologies, Health & Environmental Sciences, and Maori Development. Within the Faculties the Schools offer programmes in Applied Sciences, Art & Design, Business and Law, Communication Studies, Computing & Mathematical Sciences, Creative Technologies, Education, Engineering, Health, Hospitality & Tourism, Languages, Social Sciences and Sport & Recreation.
