International student advisers

Advice and support for all current international undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students.

Do you want to find out more about studying with us?

If you are not currently enrolled or have not accepted an offer as an international student at the University of Auckland but would like to find out more about studying here, you can find a range of information on our International students web pages or you can contact the International Office.

Our International Student Support Team recognises the pressures that students face when studying overseas. We are here to assist you with any non-academic questions you may have, or challenges you may face, during your time at the University of Auckland.

Please contact an International Student Adviser to discuss your situation.

Note: We recommend you consult with our Student Hubs first for any academic questions, e.g. degree planning, course advice, enrolment help, etc.

Our International Student Advisers are based in Alfred Nathan House. Our team usually works Monday - Friday between 8.30am and 5pm (excluding public holidays).

You can contact them directly by phone or email (details below) or through Student Hubs (access Student Hubs in the University General Library, 5 Alfred Street).

Emergency contact information for current students

If you are in New Zealand and experience an emergency or have immediate safety concerns for yourself or others call 111 for police/fire/ambulance services anywhere in New Zeealand at any time. For further guidance on emergency procedures, including how to contact Campus Security, please refer to emergency information contact numbers in the UoA Alert App.
