AUT

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

As New Zealand’s newest university, AUT is also New Zealand’s fastest growing university. Known for being innovative and industry focused, AUT offers small interactive classes, where everyone knows your name. Located in downtown Auckland, bordered by the University of Auckland on one side and the city’s main street on the other, you are steps away from exploring New Zealand’s largest and most ethnically diverse city. With your student accommodation only a few minutes walk from campus, you can easily take advantage of all this great city has to offer. From the thriving nightlife on K Road, to incredible islands for hiking and swimming only a ferry ride away, and New Zealand’s west coast beaches accessible within 45 minutes by car. The Education Abroad Network (TEAN) participants are offered a unique opportunity to experience extreme sports via an included pre-semester excursion to Queenstown. Combined with an extensive orientation program in Auckland and in-country support, participants are fully prepared to get the most from their semester abroad.
