Business

Sini Tagiloa

“I have to thank AUT for getting into Westpac – without all their support and encouragement I wouldn’t be where I am now. I don’t think they understand just how much they change people’s lives. They’ve certainly changed mine!”
Sini Tagiloa
Bachelor of Business


Computer and mathematical sciences

Daniel Wong

“One thing that stands out for me about the South Campus is the facilities – they are all new and readily accessible. And the lecturers are really willing to help you out if you have any problems. I’m now a junior test engineer for Orion Health and I’m loving the environment. I’m right where I want to be.”
Daniel Wong
Bachelor of Computer and Information Sciences


Vanessa Henderson

“AUT is unique – they will teach you something and then get you to actually do it. It gives you the chance to really understand what you’re learning. The projects are a really good stepping stone into the industry because you learn how to interact with your clients and what standards everyone holds to.”
Vanessa Henderson
Certificate in Science and Technology
Bachelor of Computer and Information Sciences


Health sciences

Sarina Harding

“I always thought it was such a miracle to bring a life into the world. Being able to support a woman and her whānau through this journey is an honour. The support network at the AUT South Campus makes all the difference - we’re like one big family. It’s easy for me to commute and it isn’t putting me out with my family and childcare.”
Sarina Harding
Bachelor of Health Science (Midwifery)


Adrienne Samuelu

“Most of our lecturers are still practising midwives and I find that really helpful because they have their finger on the pulse with what’s happening in the wider midwifery world. I’ve turned up to a placement at Auckland Hospital and my own lecturer was just coming off a shift.”
Adrienne Samuelu
Bachelor of Health Science (Midwifery)


Sport and recreation

Nicola Post

“The classes at the AUT South Campus are small so you know everyone. You quite often see the lecturers having lunch at the café and you can just go over and talk to them. And they all know your name. I love the space the campus gives me. There are heaps of study spaces where you can go and just chill out.”
Nicola Post
Bachelor of Sport and Recreation
Postgraduate Diploma in Sport and Exercise



Chonaire Huriwai

“The industry placements appealed to me because it means getting real-life experience as part of your AUT degree. It’s a great opportunity to put what you learn in the classroom into practice, and to network with people in your chosen industry. This year I’m completing 400 hours with Counties Manukau Sport. Within one week of being there I could already apply what I learned in the classroom."
Chonaire Huriwai
Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Sport and Recreation conjoint programme


Doctor of Philosophy

Salainaoloa Wilson

“AUT is constantly updating and changing, with new things happening all the time. There is room to grow - that’s what I really like about the university - it’s heading into some really exciting places. I’m fortunate to have a really good balance in my supervision team. AUT boasts a very high calibre of academics.”
