Education

AUT graduates are responsive early childhood, primary and secondary school teachers who are prepared for the challenges of future-focused education.

You’ll not only learn academic knowledge related to your programme, but also gain practical teaching experience in an early childhood centre or primary school where you’ll experience the classroom and the role of the teacher for yourself.

Research in education

We believe in high-quality research that has impact, and have world-class researchers and research strengths across education.
