AUCKLAND UNIVERSITY OF NEWZEALAND

AUT is the second largest university in New Zealand. We have been a university since 2000, but a place of learning for 120 years and operate in accordance with the Education Act (1989).

We’re proud to be one of the world’s best modern universities – Times Higher Education has ranked us as the top millennial university in Australasia and we’re in the top 1% of universities in the world.

When AUT became a university in January 2000, it had a clear vision: to provide its students with exceptional learning experiences, and send them into the world as outstanding graduates. This student-centred vision has guided AUT’s development over the past 20 years.

Now, more than 29,000 students from 137 countries study at AUT across our three campuses in Auckland’s central business district, on the North Shore and in Manukau, making us one of the largest universities in New Zealand
