The University of Auckland offers students the opportunity to study at New Zealand's largest university in the beautiful harbor city of Auckland. Students have full access to all courses at Auckland across many disciplines, such as engineering, psychology, anthropology, and more.

The University

Founded in 1883, the University of Auckland is the country’s largest university with over 40,000 students, nearly 10,000 of whom graduate annually. The main campus is in the heart of Auckland city. Auckland’s harbor setting, magnificent beaches and verdant bush make it a great place to study and work, while the University’s close proximity to New Zealand’s major business city enables staff and students to rub shoulders with leading practitioners in their field.

The Setting

Auckland is the most populous urban area in the country, and it is located on the North Island in between to major harbors. It is home to the Maori population and culture, and it combines a rich history with vibrant city life and beautiful scenery. 



Students will enroll in a full course-load while at Auckland, which is 60 Auckland "units" (typically four courses.) The 60 units is the equivalent of four Princeton credits. Courses can be found in the areas of the Humanities, Engineering, Social Sciences, STEM, and more. Check out the Auckland course catalog for a list of all courses. Note that what we call "courses" are referred to as "subjects" at Auckland.


Applicants must have a B average for the fall and spring semesters of the academic year preceding the year or semester abroad.
