Auckland University of Technology

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

Brief information

According to AbbreviationFinder, Auckland University of Technology is New Zealand’s most modern and fastest growing university, offering courses in both traditional and very new fields. Since it was founded in 1895 as Auckland Technical School, but only got its final name in 2000 after some renaming, it is considered the newest university in the country.

There is a wide range of courses at AUT in many different disciplines. In general, the programs offered come from the areas of Applied Humanities, Business and Law, Design and Creative Technologies, Health and Environmental Sciences and Maori Development. Interested parties can obtain academic degrees at various levels or complete semesters abroad, language courses and further education.

The culturally diverse perspectives that international students bring to the university are particularly appreciated. The International Student Support Team is there for them, offering all kinds of support to foreign students. The team also organizes leisure activities, workshops and seminars, takes care of the orientation week and brings the students closer to Maori culture.
