The University of Auckland is New Zealand’s leading tertiary institution and largest university. It spans six campuses, has the largest university library complex in New Zealand and is the only New Zealand university that has both Engineering and Medical and Health Science 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. The University is an international university with formal agreements with 155 universities in 34 countries. Staff are appointed from many countries and we attract high quality undergraduate and postgraduate international students to study here from more than 100 countries around the world. We are the only New Zealand member of Universitas 21, the Association of Pacific Rim Universities and Worldwide Universities Network. The University of Auckland is New Zealand’s largest research organisation with more than 13,000 staff and postgraduate students involved in fundamental and applied research. It generates about $230 million in annual research revenue, with more than $30 million from international sources. Our research programmes range across all disciplines: from our Auckland Cancer Society Research Centre to Education, where researchers are working towards increasing learning success in clusters of low-achieving primary and secondary schools. As well as having almost 50 research units, centres and institutes at departmental, faculty and university level, we host four national Centres of Research Excellence (CoREs) established by the government to drive innovative, international research. In addition, the University of Auckland is a partner in New Zealand’s two other CoREs: the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology and the Dodd-Walls Centre for Photonic and Quantum Technologies.
