The University of Auckland is New Zealand’s highest-ranked university. It is also the largest and most comprehensive. The University’s student population of 42,000 includes 6,000 international students representing over 110 countries.
We have formal agreements with 155 universities in 34 countries and are the only New Zealand member of Universitas 21, the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) and the Association of Pacific Rim Universities.
The University is located in the harbour city of Auckland, New Zealand’s economic and cultural hub, with easy access to stunning beaches and rainforests. Auckland was ranked third out of 230 cities in the 2015 Mercer Quality of Living Survey. We have five main campuses, the largest of which is nestled within Auckland's bustling cultural and business hub.

Under a New Zealand Government scheme, new international PhD students usually pay the same annual tuition fees as New Zealand students.
With the country’s highest concentration of top-ranked researchers, teaching and learning is informed by the latest research enabling students to benefit from this first-rate research reputation.
We are the only New Zealand university that has both Engineering and Medical and Health Sciences faculties. This has enabled pioneering collaborations between medical and engineering researchers and resulted in the creation of the flagship Bioengineering Institute, internationally recognised for its sophisticated computer modelling of living organisms.
We provide extensive support services for all students including academic learning support, accommodation options, scholarships, counselling, sport and recreation facilities and many on-campus events.
