An Internationally-renowned university in a lively and diverse multi-cultural city

The University of Auckland is New Zealand’s largest and highest ranked university, with hundreds of course options and a focus on STEM subjects, including biology, marine studies and engineering, as well as anthropology, ethnology, and Maori and Pacific studies. Field study options available in some areas give you the opportunity to apply the concepts you are learning in the classroom to the real world. Additionally, their AACSB accredited Business School is located in the brand new, purpose-built Owen G. Glenn Building. 

More than 2,500 Maori students, 3,500 South Pacific Islanders, 15,500 students of Asian background and 6,000 international students give Auckland the vibrant diversity that makes it such an exciting learning community.

Going abroad gives you the opportunity to truly separate yourself from the everyday. It provides so much freedom, which, when met with curiosity, allows you to explore and discover new and wonderful things about yourself... ”

  • Auckland is an easy jumping off point to travel around to the rest of the country and is an easily accessible city.

  • Though the largest city in New Zealand, Auckland is still easy to walk around and has a great cafe and shopping culture.

  • With over 200 clubs and societies, there's a club for every taste. From tramping, canoeing, photography, and politics, to cosplay, drinking wine or eating desserts, clubs help balance your studies and grow your network.
