Our university is a host to students from more than 90 countries and has a long history of actively encouraging internationalisation through its many teaching and research programmes. We have obtained international recognition in many disciplines and are widely known for our high standards and excellence. When students make the decision to study at our university they choose a university like no other. It is characterised by the applied nature of many of its teaching and research programmes and by its special expertise in the fields of science, design, social science, education, and business.

We are an integrated University operating across three major campuses: Auckland, Palmerston North, and Wellington, which are all cities on New Zealand’s North Island. The unique multi-campus structure makes it possible for students planning a year abroad to consider studying at the Auckland campus for one semester and then one semester at either Palmerston North or Wellington campus or vice versa. This flexible campus option is a great chance to experience different Kiwi lifestyles and see New Zealand from other perspectives.
