AUT is a contemporary New Zealand university focused on providing exceptional student learning experiences and enabling graduate success.
As New Zealand’s second largest and fastest growing university, AUT is known for its research-led and professionally oriented curricula, and interdisciplinary approach to scholarship.
We rank first in New Zealand and twelfth in the world for international outlook. More than 7,000 of AUT’s nearly 29,000 students are international students, hailing from over 100 countries. Nearly half (47%) of our 2,350 academic staff are international, from 97 countries.
In addition to our three vibrant campuses across Auckland, AUT’s specialist facilities include a high performance sports centre, a radio astronomy observatory, a diagnostics laboratory, and a range of high-tech labs including motion-capture and textile design labs.
Ranked as the world’s third most livable city (Mercer), Auckland is New Zealand’s economic and cultural hub, with easy access to stunning beaches, harbours and nature reserves. Our City Campus is situated adjacent to world-class restaurants, theatres, galleries and nightlife, and only a short ferry ride to the Hauraki Gulf’s assortment of unpopulated islands, volcanoes and wineries.
