International students: study part of your degree at AUT, New Zealand

Students being welcomed at marae If you're studying at one of AUT's partner institutions, we invite you to spend a semester in our student exchange programme. 

How student exchange works

As an exchange student you will:

  • Pay standard fees to your home university – you don't pay any fees to AUT.
  • Earn credits towards your home university degree – just choose four papers (courses) that best fit your studies.
  • Receive a warm, distinctly New Zealand welcome onto our campus.
  • Be supported in adapting to life and study in a new environment.
  • Have plenty of opportunities to make new friends, learn about our unique culture and discover New Zealand's superb natural scenery.

How to apply for student exchange

If your home university is one of AUT's partners, contact your Exchange Coordinator for details on how to apply. Once you have been accepted for student exchange by your home university, you can contact AUT's International Programmes Coordinator.
