International student advisers

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

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.

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