Find out how COVID-19 is affecting the 2020 academic year and what we're doing to continue to deliver the highest quality education and student experiences.

Students on overseas programmes

All AUT overseas study programmes scheduled for Semester 2 are suspended until further notice. These include the International Student Exchange, Cooperative Education, Work Integrated Learning, and other AUT programmes involving overseas travel. Students whose overseas placement is in their home country, and it’s the last step to complete their degree, should discuss their options with their faculty. If you have any questions about your overseas programme, please contact your programme coordinator.

Current situation in New Zealand

There are a small number of COVID-19 cases in New Zealand. New Zealand’s borders are currently closed to almost all travellers (except for NZ citizens and residents) to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Every person arriving into NZ must go into managed isolation or a quarantine facility for a minimum of 14 days.

New Zealand is currently at Alert Level 1 – Prepare. These alert levels specify the public health and social measures that must be taken.
