Vice Chancellor's Welcome

The University is situated in the heart of Auckland and provides an exciting and stimulating environment for its 40,000 students. Currently over 4,700 international students from 90 countries have chosen to study at Auckland, testimony to both the University’s comprehensive range of research-based study programmes and the recognition they are receiving internationally. Graduates of The University of Auckland occupy leading positions in business, law, medicine, politics, arts, engineering and the professions within New Zealand and overseas.

I am pleased to confirm the arrangement with Taylors College Auckland that recognises the Taylors Auckland Foundation Year as a pathway for entry into degree programmes at the University. Under these arrangements, the University will guarantee entry into degree programmes for students whose results in the Taylors Auckland Foundation Year (AFY) meet the predetermined standards specified for each of the University’s degree programmes, and who meet all the other entry requirements for admission to the University. The Taylors Auckland Foundation Year program is approved by a Board of Studies established specifically for that purpose by the University and Taylors College Auckland.
