The School of Graduate Studies has moved to Alfred Nathan House.

Alfred Nathan House - School of Graduate Studies new home

The School of Graduate Studies has overall responsibility for the development and oversight of policies and procedures for graduate programmes, and for the promotion of graduate study and advocacy for graduate students.

We provide information and administrative services to all prospective and current postgraduate students. Our Postgraduate Advisers can help with doctoral, examination and thesis submission enquiries.

The Dean of Graduate Studies, Associate Professor Caroline Daley, is the Chair of the Board of Graduate Studies. The board is responsible for the creation and administration of the University's policies on postgraduate study.

The School of Graduate Studies is now located next to Ask Auckland Central in Alfred Nathan House.  Please contact to make an appointment with any of the postgraduate advisers.
