AUT University

AUT is New Zealand’s newest university, with a distinctive approach to teaching and learning.

Auckland is internationally recognised and globally competitive – the university for the changing world. We have reinterpreted the character of the older universities, but retain at our core a close relationship between research and teaching.

Around this is built our distinctive approach to teaching and learning – our focus on the application of knowledge. AUT graduates are highly responsive to the needs of the modern, fast-changing and multi-skilled work place.

The Faculties of Business, Design and Creative Technologies, Health and Environmental Sciences and Applied Humanities offer a comprehensive range of courses from pre-degree through to undergraduate and postgraduate doctoral levels. Because of established relationships with employers and professionals, the teaching and research is relevant to current and future industry, which accounts for our 95% graduate employment rate. Many programmes involve a co-operative education component, where students join a commercial enterprise for a semester and apply their newly-found skills and knowledge in the real world.

English Language and Foundation Studies are also offered.
