Elloise is studying towards a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Global Studies conjoint degree. She plans to work overseas in urban design.
“The University of Auckland is New Zealand’s most globally recognised and esteemed. With my desire to work and travel overseas, this is really important! The utter wealth of knowledge that people hold here is mind-boggling.
“I love the academic variety and the diversity of people. A conjoint degree means I can mix and match papers from each side to find a balance between subjects, so I never get bored. I’ve studied philosophy, history, sustainability, Spanish, politics, and communication, all within one Global Studies major – and there are even more options in the future!”

“All the lecturers and tutors are so helpful and very passionate about what they teach. Everyone is there to invest their time and energy in students. This creates such a friendly, unified environment.
Great learning experiences
“We recently did a film project that involved being grouped randomly with other students. This was so much fun because we spent hours between classes filming each other, exploring locations, and having so many laughs. The project was about intercultural communication so while exploring that topic we were also communicating among ourselves, learning about each other’s cultures, and making friends!
“I plan to pursue postgraduate study in urban planning and work internationally to design sustainable living spaces. Global Studies is vital to this because I need to understand more than just my way of perceiving the world we live in.”
