The UniversityFounded 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 SettingAuckland 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.

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.
