Welcome from the Vice-Chancellor

AUT is a contemporary New Zealand university focused on providing exceptional student opportunities and learning experiences, and graduate success in a context stimulated by impactful research and industry connectivity.
More than 28,000 students are enrolled at AUT in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, studying at one of our three campuses. AUT has consistently been a leader in undergraduate and postgraduate enrolment growth of both New Zealand and international students across a wide range of professional disciplines, and as a result it is now the second largest university in New Zealand.

AUT’s teaching is innovative and student centred. We encourage our students to collaborate, experiment and to experience working life beyond the classroom. In addition to teaching, we have a strong focus on innovative research in areas such as biotechnology, artificial intelligence and nutrition.

As a result, our graduates enter the work force able to challenge routine thinking and provide innovative solutions to industry.

I look forward to welcoming you to the university.
