Join New Zealand’s pre-eminent research-intensive university. Consistently ranked in the top 100 universities in the world (including four consecutive top 10 UNSDG impact rankings), our commitment to academic excellence is just as strong as yours.


We are a fully comprehensive public university, conducting teaching and research across eight faculties and two large-scale research institutes.

Our medical students work alongside leading specialists at Auckland City Hospital, while the Faculty of Law is within walking distance of the courts and major legal firms. The Business School has a close relationship with leading Auckland companies, and academics from our Faculty of Engineering, School of Population Health and School of Architecture and Planning serve on think tanks helping to shape the city’s future.
