Online programmes for offshore international students

AUT’s mission is to provide great graduates and exceptional learning experiences for all our students. Our focus is on providing the best possible on-campus and off-campus learning for 2021 and beyond.

For international students currently offshore who are unable to study on-campus due to border restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, there are some AUT programmes you can study online with us in 2021.

You can progress your qualification now without needing a student visa to study from your home country.
