University of Auckland

The Auckland University of Technology (AUT) was formed on 1 January 2000 (1895 originally Auckland Technical School) when the Auckland Institute of Technology was granted university status. Its primary campus is on Wellesley Street in Aucklands Central business district (CBD). AUT has three secondary campuses: North Shore, South, and the Millennium Institute of Sport and Health (AUT Millennium Campus). For branding purposes, since 2010 the Auckland University of Technology referred to itself as AUT University and later AUT. AUT enrolled 27,299 students in 2013, including 3,101 international students from 85 countries, and 1,735 postgraduate students. 87% of students were enrolled in a bachelors degree or higher qualification. AUT’s student population is diverse with students having a range of ethnic backgrounds including New Zealand European, Asian, Maori and Pacific Islander. Students also represent a wide age range with 37% of students being over 25. AUT University employed 2,063 full-time equivalent (FTE) staff in 2011, including both administrative and academic staff members.

Why Join:

No.1 in New Zealand, top 50 in the world Study with us and you join a diverse community of creative people in an environment from which new ideas emerge on a daily basis. You work in shared studio spaces, constantly surrounded by innovation and technology to fuel your creativity. Many of our academic staff are still actively involved in their professional fields, and we often invite industry experts to come in and share their knowledge with you. These are all reasons why the latest QS World University Rankings found AUT’s School of Art and Design to be the best in New Zealand, and in the top 50 schools for art and design worldwide. Connected to business and community We’re proud of our strong partnerships with businesses and the creative sector, and frequently collaborate with industry organisations on research or other projects. As an art and design student you often work with one of our many industry partners, giving you valuable industry experience and networking opportunities. Product design students, for example, work on live briefs for a wide range of industry organisations, from Kathmandu and Snowplanet to Zespri and the Auckland District Health Board. Students in all majors may also be able to showcase their work to industry and the media at the AUT School of Art and Design festival or the AUT Rookie fashion show. Social and collaborative Studying at AUT is never an isolated experience. Teamwork is a key part of our programmes and you frequently collaborate with your classmates on projects, sharing ideas, discussing your work and supporting each other to achieve the best outcome. As you would in the workplace, you work with people from different disciplines – students, staff or industry contacts – to come up with a complete solution. This collaborative approach creates a close-knit, supportive environment, and for many of our students it’s the highlight of their studies.
