Auckland University of Technology (AUT) is spread across three campuses in Auckland, New Zealand, and offers over 250 courses in subjects ranging from art and design to languages. It prides itself on being the number one millennial university, and is ranked in the top 50 universities under 50 years old. Auckland itself, meanwhile, was ranked 28th in the QS Best Student Cities ranking, receiving a high score in factors such as quality of living and having a large student community.
Students can get careers advice from the University’s Employability Lab, which offers help with writing a CV and cover letter, improving interview techniques, and making contacts with employers to get work experience.
The University offers a wide range of support services to help make life as stress-free as possible for students during their time studying. These include a disability support service, international student support, a confidential counselling service, and spiritual and religious support for students of all faiths.
There are a wide range of clubs and societies on offer for AUT students to get involved with during their spare time. These range from subject-specific to sports clubs. As New Zealand’s leading sports university, students also have access to state-of-the-art fitness facilities, including sports centres and the opportunity to work with a personal trainer.
During their time studying, students have the opportunity to spend some of their time in another country through an international exchange programme, at one of AUT’s partner institutions. Students are encouraged to do so to stand out from the crowd after graduation, as well as gaining new life and cultural experiences.
