Applying for undergraduate study

You are welcome to apply for admission to a University of Auckland undergraduate programme on completion of your TFC. 

We strongly encourage you to apply as soon as applications open. There is no need to wait until your TFC results are released. We can make you an early provisional offer of a place, which can be confirmed when we receive your results.

Note that moving from a TFC pathway into a specific degree is not automatic and depends on the grades achieved in your TFC year. Some undergraduate degree programmes have additional or higher entry requirements than others. We recommend you contact the relevant faculty before applying.
