Covid-19 update for applicants

Applications and Admissions continues to provide a business as usual service while working remotely. Supporting future students remains our priority.

Though much has stayed the same, some changes have been made to give you additional options and to help you meet our admission requirements. You can find information on what has changed below.

All applicants

For the period of the global pandemic, identity documents can be emailed to us at admission@auckland.ac.nz if you have an unconditional/full offer of admission for 2020. However, when you can make it to campus, you will need to provide a certified hard copy.

Deferrals

If you have an offer of admission for 2020 you will soon receive an additional offer for the next available start date in 2021. Your original offer will remain but you will have the option to delay the start of your studies should you choose to.

Please note that this excludes Doctoral and some limited entry programmes.

International applicants

For intakes in 2021 the validity period of English tests and qualifications has been extended from 2 years to 2.5 years. If you meet our English Language Requirements via this exception you will be required to sit a Diagnostic English Language Needs Assessment (DELNA) no later than 2 weeks into your first semester of study, and undertake any recommended enrichment/support.

IELTS Indicator and TOEFL Special Home Edition will be accepted for 2020 and 2021 intakes. If you meet our English Language Requirements via one of these online tests you will be required to sit a Diagnostic English Language Needs Assessment (DELNA) no later than 2 weeks into your first semester of study, and undertake any recommended enrichment/support.

Predicted/indicative grades

If you are unable to provide final examination results we can complete a preliminary assessment of your application based on predicted or indicative results. In some cases we may also be able to issue an unconditional offer.
