University of Auckland

Location: Auckland
Year Established: 1883
Student population: 42,000 (6,000 international students)
The University of Auckland is New Zealand’s highest ranking university. Located in the heart of Auckland, it is the country’s preeminent research institution and has the largest graduate school in the country. The University has a strong international focus.

The University has six campuses. The City Campus boasts a large Recreation Centre, a theatre, Music Theatre and two art galleries, while Epsom Campus has dance studios, a fitness centre and gymnasium, tennis courts and a swimming pool. The University has the largest university library complex in New Zealand. Entrepreneurship is encouraged though Spark, an annual student-led entrepreneurial challenge, and Chiasma, a student organisation that fosters links between science and business.
Unique characteristics
The University offers more than 120 undergraduate subjects, which include a general education component. Programs are research-led and attract a high calibre of teaching professionals. There are excellent research facilities, including the Centre for Advance MRI, which has the most advanced 3T Skyra MRI research scanner in the world. The Conservation Laboratory for Wet Organic Archaeological Materials in the Department of Anthropology is the only facility of its type in the South Pacific.
Auckland is a harbour city with wonderful beaches and beautiful bushland. The University is close to New Zealand’s major business hub and many of the courses utilise the facilities the city has to offer – for example, medical students work at Auckland City Hospital and the Business School has a close relationship with leading Auckland companies. Auckland is a highly multicultural city, with large Asian and Polynesian populations.
