Settling in and support with your studies

AUT has people on campus who can help you settle in and stay on top of your studies. We’ll help you develop your learning skills from when you first arrive, through to the end of your studies.

Settling in: student ambassadors

Our student ambassadors are current AUT students who volunteer their time to help you settle in during your first semester. They help out at events including orientation and can give you tips about life on campus: like where’s good to eat or buy something, how to get help or support, and how to study.

Study help: peer mentors

Our peer mentors, who are senior AUT students, give help to students around study subjects and papers. They’ll help you develop your learning skills by giving you one-on-one tutoring or general academic support.

Support on your study journey: Student Experience Team

Staffed by current AUT students, the Student Experience Team can offer you support and information during your studies – from the time you accept your offer until you finish your last assignment. They work with faculties to follow up on your progress and to let you know about services or support that might be useful to you.

One place for info on campus: the Student Hub

Each campus – North, South and City – has a Student Hub where you can go for help with study or personal issues. Staff at the hub will answer your question immediately, or connect you with the person or service that can help you.

Academic support from Learning Advisors

You can get help on a range of academic skills from our Learning Advisors, who are based at the AUT Library. Join a workshop, talk to an advisor or get help online – they offer support with writing, research, note-taking, exam and reading skills.
