"I heard AUT had an excellent reputation for teaching competent midwives, and I liked that the degree was offered at AUT's South Campus, near my home. The clinical placements are particularly invaluable. Although you can get nervous entering a new clinical area, the lecturers prepare you really well.

Lucy Lu
"Midwifery is a small class. It's really intimate - like a small family, really. And we're all supportive of each other - we share resources and help each other whenever we can. I find that the South Campus has lots of quiet study spaces, which means I don't get disturbed so easily, and can really focus on my study."

I was always taught at school that it's not about how smart you are, it's about your attitude. Studying at AUT's South Campus has been a really good experience for me. I'm really passionate about what I'm doing."

Aaron Small
"I'm really enjoying my study at uni. The first year was really broad — we did everything from programming to the fundamentals of IT. I've really enjoyed it.

"I've also made some good mates. We have small classes at AUT's South Campus so we create personal bonds with the lecturers, which makes such a difference. When you have a good relationship with the lecturers it's much easier - they know how to explain things to you personally."

Michelle at AUT South campus

Michelle Brougham
"When I left school, I felt lost — I didn’t know what I wanted to do, or what I liked – other than that I enjoyed being with children. This course has given me a clear direction and I can see a great career at the end of it.

"I would absolutely recommend this course to others, especially the chance to study at AUT's South Campus - there’s a really good study buzz here and our class is really supportive."

"For me, AUT's South Campus is the perfect environment in which to study. It's away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and it has all the resources and support services I need. I moved here from Wellington in order to pursue my studies, and it was really hard to leave my parents behind. But I feel I've definitely made the right decision. The South Campus already feels like home."
