Welcome from Professor Jane Harding, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research)
Welcome to the research world of The University of Auckland.
Universities are primarily institutions for the generation and transmission of knowledge. This means that research, or the generation of new knowledge, is fundamental to every aspect of our activities.
Our research informs and enriches our teaching. Our research results make a large and critically important contribution to the cultural, social, and economic development of New Zealand and the world. Our research record has helped us achieve a place in the world’s top 100 universities and take pride of place as New Zealand’s leading university.
We regard research and research-led teaching as high priorities and we place great value on fostering, publishing and disseminating research of the highest international quality.
Our research topics are very diverse, including arts, business, creative arts, education, engineering, law, medical and health sciences, science and theology. Our masters and doctoral degrees are offered in the traditional disciplines, as well as a broad range of emerging cross-disciplinary subject areas.
The University of Auckland offers students world-class academic staff, extensive library resources, excellent research facilities and state-of-the-art information technology.
Each year the University offers several summer research scholarships for students who have completed at least two years of their undergraduate degree. For further information, please see summer research scholarships.
Our goal is to be recognised internationally as a high quality research-led university, making a significant contribution to generating new knowledge that will benefit both New Zealand and the wider world.
