Postgraduate policies and guidelines

Postgraduate students are encouraged to familiarise themselves with all the University policies and guidelines relating to their study. These can be found here.

In particular, your attention is drawn to the following two documents which relate to off-campus study:

  1. This document relates to the need for Masters students to work off-campus for a period, for example to conduct field work, use laboratory facilities or access special library collections. Read more here.
  2. This document relates to temporary absence (off-campus activity) by doctoral candidates at the University of Auckland for a period of between two months and one year, for instance to perform field work or complete laboratory work. Such absence may have an impact on the fees that you are charged. Read more here.
