Vice Chancellor's Welcome

AUT University is a contemporary university, with a unique profile reflecting our innovative approaches to teaching, learning and research. This is a university that is outward-looking, developing and adapting to the social, economic and technological realities which shape the world today. As a result AUT graduates are responsive to the needs of the modern, fast-changing and multi-skilled work place.

We understand the importance of building international relationships and we place a high value on the contribution that international students make to university life. We currently have students from 84 different countries studying here at AUT University and they enjoy an inclusive learning environment – one which supports a diversity of people, cultures and ideas.

AUT University is delighted to be associated with the Taylors Auckland Foundation Year (AFY) programme, which paves the way for international students to enter both AUT University and other New Zealand universities. AUT University is pleased to guarantee entry to all AFY graduates who meet the entry standards set by our faculties.

We look forward to welcoming AFY graduates in the future.
