International networks and affiliations
As New Zealand's largest university and leading research institution, The University of Auckland offers its faculties, staff and students a strong platform for international recognition, benchmarking, research collaboration, policy development and student opportunities overseas.
It does this through membership of three key networks of research universities.
Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU)
The University collaborates with the major universities of the Pacific Rim economies through its network membership of the APRU, a consortium of 42 leading research universities in the Pacific Rim.
The University undertakes collaborative research with these international counterparts, both as an institution and through individual staff members who are expert in their field.
Other network activities allow the University, its staff and students to affect global change through multidisciplinary forums and combined research efforts. The University also maintains a network of bilateral relationships with institutions and other bodies worldwide.
As the only New Zealand member of Universitas 21, The University of Auckland benefits from an international network of leading research universities in 15 countries that cooperate towards high educational quality and international visibility.
In 2010, The University of Auckland accepted a formal invitation to join the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN), an international university network focused primarily on research collaboration, postgraduate education and research funding. WUN comprises leading research universities committed to bringing their collective capability to bear some of the major issues facing humankind.
