AUT is the second largest university in New Zealand, with 100,000 alumni around the world. We're located in Auckland, the third best city in the world to live in. When you study at AUT, you'll join 6,000 international students from 140 countries.

New Zealand is a stable, English-speaking democracy with just over four million people. We are one of the most peaceful nations in the world and one of the best countries to live in.


Student visa applications to open from 1 August 2022

There’s good news for international students in the latest border announcement by the New Zealand Government. From 1 August 2022, immigration officials will begin processing student visas and international students will be able to enter New Zealand.

Now is a good time to explore your options and make a plan to start your study at AUT. You can start your study online in Semester 2, 2022 and, once you receive your visa, transition to on-campus study in Semester 2 or later in Semester 1, 2023.

AUT's accommodation buildings
Jason Mann Photography

AUT accommodation is a great option for international students. It's modern and convenient – live just minutes away from our City or North campuses.


AUT abides by the Education (Pastoral Care of Tertiary and International Learners) Code of Practice 2021

The Code sets out minimum standards of advice and care that you can expect and provides a procedure that you can follow if you have concerns about the treatment you receive from us or an AUT registered agent.

Responsibility for pastoral care of international students under the Code is for the duration of enrolment.

More about the code


iStudents Complaints is an independent dispute resolution scheme established by the New Zealand Government. It helps international students resolve disputes between students and their education provider.

It is important that you have raised any complaint with AUT using the Student Feedback Form before engaging iStudent.
