Welcome to our international students
Prof Stuart McCutcheon
As Auckland is a research-led university, your courses will incorporate the latest findings and perspectives related to your discipline, including the research carried out by your teachers. The University of Auckland is full of opportunities for students, from developing English language skills to a wide choice of programmes, and provides access to a wonderful range of extra-curricular activities. New Zealand is culturally diverse and politically stable, providing a safe environment in a beautiful location, enabling you to enjoy an excellent lifestyle whilst studying at the highest level.
The University of Auckland is the only New Zealand member of Universitas 21, a prestigious international consortium of research-led universities that fosters academic exchange and quality benchmarking among its members. The University of Auckland is also a member of the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU), a network of major international universities in the Asia-Pacific Rim region. In 2010 the University became the only New Zealand member of the Worldwide Universities Network, a group of leading universities focused on international research collaboration with the aim of addressing some of the major issues facing humankind.
In addition to the outstanding services and facilities available to all our students, we offer specialised support services for international students through our International Office. This support includes dedicated student advisers who are available to help you enrol and settle in to your new study life.
We’ve earned a great reputation for delivering academic and research excellence within an inspiring and supportive learning environment. I would like to warmly welcome you to be a part of The University of Auckland community. By choosing to study with us, you will give yourself a foundation that will set you apart for the rest of your life.
