Understanding how university works

The New Zealand higher education system may differ from your country of origin. Hence, AUT‘s UniPrep programme offers a taste of NZ university experience. This programme is offered over the summer break at AUT South Campus, designed to ease you into university life and ensure you get the best possible start.

Getting started

Orientation for new students takes place the week prior to the start of lectures. Students who attend Orientation generally experience a smoother transition to university. They also feel more socially connected with other students from their programme and do better in their study. The Orientation programmes cater to the diverse backgrounds, experiences and needs of our students.
